2.0 out of 5 stars Trite, 2 Sept. 2011
It is a very easy read, and the early part of the book has some promising features, however it quickly goes downhill. The religious aspect is strained and does not add anything to the book. The end is rushed, unbelievable and disappointing, which is sad as it could have been so much better!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good practice with some drawbacks, 29 Aug. 2011
This is one of the first books of SBAs (single best answer or best of fives) aimed at the primary FRCA, which will for the first time feature these questions in the September MCQ. Without sitting the exam I can't comment on how like the actual questions they are, though they are broadly comparable to the ones on the RCOA website. It is good practice, with some topics mirroring the favourites that come up over and over electricity and protein binding in local anaesthetics. The fact that a lot of questions feature a clinical scenario also mirrors questions from the recent MCQ papers. Some of the calculation questions seem more complicated that would ususally be set for an exam that doesn't allow a calculator, and some are irrelevant; it may be nice knowing which anti-hypertensive to use in newly diagnosed hypertension, but unless you plan a career in medicine it is not going to feature in your day to day practice. Overall it is good (and at the moment the only) practice of basic science SBAs in anaesthesia, and as someone who's taking their third stab at this nightmare of an exam I'm glad I've been through it!
