Format: Paperback
There are loads of books out there for the MRCPCH exams. However there isn't enough time to read through them all and do all of those questions whilst preparing for exams. Essential Revision Notes in Paediatrics for MRCPCH is pretty comprehensive but it reads like a collection of lists/bullet points making it difficult to get through at times.

I found this book to be invaluabe in revising for the part 1b exam in particular. Like Surgical Talk: Revision in Surgery for finals, it's readable and takes you through individual subject topics in a tutorial fashion. It takes a number of topics from first principles -genetics, haematology, jaundice, endocrinology (and to date for me it's the only book that explains topics such as renal tubular acidosis in a way that makes sense). Investigations such as EEGs, cardiac catheterisation data, blood films, pulumonary function test etc are also explained- what to look for and what it means.

There are flaws with the book. It's by no means comprehensive, and it's orientated towards hospital paediatrics. The community aspects of paeds aren't really covered and I'd also recommend a larger text to read around some of the chapters and consolidate the stuff that you'd learnt from the book. However the book's very good at teaching you the basics pretty quickly and focusing you towards the areas of the textbooks that you'd normally overlook. I know quite a few people who'd swear blind by this book for parts 1 and 2 (with a few more books for questions and pictures for data interpretation). The fact that most of this book is actually easy to read sets it apart from a number of its competitors.

Well worth at least looking at in the local hospital library.

If you are sitting part 2 written of the MRCPCH exam I cannot recommend this book more highly. In agreement with previous reviewers this book is not comprehensive but it assumes a prior level of knowledge and thus allows a concise format and aids in understanding the core of most topics. It could I suppose be used as a framework for studying from.
In expensive and a valuable tool.

Very detailed but precise, provides you with all the information you need in neat paragraphs. Not overbearing, gets to the point with extra hints and clever methods to get through the exam.
