Product Description

Review

5 Stars: Does what it claims on the cover
A solid, comprehensive knowledge base will not be enough [to pass your exam] without practising the art of answering questions. This text offers just such an opportunity; it is well laid out, comprehensive and easy to use. I would commend it to you most highly. (Amazon Customer Review, Sept 2009)

5 Stars: Great book
This book was a great help in preparing for the MCEM exam. It is closely linked to the syllabus, the questions are set out in the same way as the exam and have a similar style of wording the questions (tip - read EVERY word in the question!). It also has detailed explanations so you can actually learn when you go wrong - so few MCQ books have anything more then TTFTF written.

Highly recommended.

(Amazon customer review, Dec 2009)

5 Stars: Excellent book
I used this book as the basis for my later revision for MCEM A. It has a sensible layout with good descriptions of answers at the back. Using the descriptions as prompts it is then up to you to read further around the subject. The standard of the questions mirrors the exam well.

I would urge all those sitting the MCEM A to use this book from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does What It Claims On The Cover 30 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
Having been in the unenviable position of failing a variety of exams, at different stages of my career, I feel reasonably qualified to offer opinions on how best NOT to fail. Clearly the advice I was offered by one of my Registrars ("You must know everything") is not specific enough, even if it is, to some degree, true.
A solid, comprehensive knowledge base will not be enough without practising the art of answering questions. This text offers just such an opportunity; it is well laid out, comprehensive and easy to use.
I would commend it to you most highly

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 28 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
I used this book as the basis for my later revision for MCEM A. It has a sensible layout with good descriptions of answers at the back.

Using the descriptions as prompts it is then up to you to read round the subject more. The standard of the questions mirrors the exam well although i am yet to receive my full feedback and my mark i feel i will be mirroring my pre-exam results.

I would urge all those sitting the MCEM A to use this book from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars It worked 9 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
Used this book in the final push during my MCEM revision, also used it as a basis for revision sessions with my study partner.

It worked because I passed 1st time, the format is good and the explanations helpful.

It is essential reading for MCEM Part A.
