If you are taking the MCEM or FCEM this book is for you!!
on 16 September 2013
I have always been a bit of a book fiend! I have read 3 Oxford handbooks cover to cover and all MRCP examination and theory books and i have read at least 2 other emergency medicine guides.
For emergency medicine examinations this is the GOLD STANDARD!
It covers the whole curriculum, easy to read and some of the chapters are soooo well written. The chapter on medico legal issues is the most concise and memorable I have come across.
The chapter on toxicology is more generic than the Oxford handbook and I would use both for revising this topic and the infectious disease chapters as they complement each other. There is no cover on major incidents and you will need to outsource this topic for MCEM and FCEM.
Forget about typos they are inconsequential when the standard of the text is so high.
Don't hesitate buy it now!
Yes I am a total fan!
