All in all recomended read. The rest is all damn luck anyways :P

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading, 18 Feb 2011
This review is from: How to Pass the MRCPsych CASC (Oxford Specialty Training: Revision Texts) (Paperback)
I found this book an excellent resource when preparing for my exams. As well as good case studies, there are really useful summaries in relation to diagnostic criteria, clinical risk and risk management. The authors are clearly experienced and they came through in particular in advice about how to phrase questions during an assessment. The mock exam questions were very useful too. Very readable and accessible without ever over simplifying. A great investment for your exams and a useful resource that you will no doubt refer to in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful, 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Pass the MRCPsych CASC (Oxford Specialty Training: Revision Texts) (Paperback)
Extremely useful book in that it guides through some of the more difficult topics in the CASC exam with the exact wording of interview questions and information giving. There are extra sections at the beginning that help to formulate logical management plans and give helpful general advice on performance and at the end of chapters are key NICE guidelines which could be incorporated into a station. It is not all inclusive for every topic so other material I think is needed but for a book on the CASC exam I have found this to be one of the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars a very useful aid to the CASC exam, 30 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Pass the MRCPsych CASC (Oxford Specialty Training: Revision Texts) (Paperback)
Concisely written
each chapter highlights ICD-10 and ends in NICE guidelines
Pnemonics for some criteria
well written Psychotherpay chapters
good printing

Not to be used as core material though, but an excellent supplement and a must buy for CASC going candidates
