"House staff and attending physicians with teaching responsibilities may also benefit from the text."
Journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings (Review of the previous edition).
"...does a thorough job of demystifying the elements and culture of the clerkships."
Journal Teaching and Learning in Medicine (Review of the previous edition).
"Success on the Wards is an excellent reference for any 3rd year medical student and some is probably great reading for advanced students and even residents and interns. The book would also be a terrific reference for international students or beginning interns to learn the US clerkship system. The book is well written and an easy read. The numerous literature supported references gives the book some real relevance and makes the evidence believable, instead of being heavily opinionated and only a few of one or two people."
"If you can understand everything in the book and are able to apply it, you will be a stellar third-year and fourth-year medical student. Heck, if you apply everything in the book, you will be a stellar intern for your first year of residency."

"Success on the Wards is easily the best book I have read on how to succeed in clerkship. It is comprehensive, thorough and jam-packed with valuable information."
"This is a strong resource for medical students starting their clerkships. Extremely well organized and covered all the cores rotations in depth. Particularly useful were the multiple "Tips" and "Rules" that accompanied each section. Definitely a must-have for those looking to impress their attendings during their rotations."
