Many strong points and a couple of weak ones
on 10 May 2009
This book covers a large number of OSCE stations and contains some extra teaching points which one would not necessarily expect from an OSCE book. There are also thumbnail sketches of the most common differential diagnoses and written out examples of case summaries. As a result the book is perhaps bulkier than I would have liked. Compared to some of the other books out there the information is often not so easy to pick out and memorise. At first glance the marking schemes seem like a great idea, but they can disengenuous, as they may differ quite considerably from one medical school to another. All in all, however, this book should be an invaluable aid to anyone preparing for the dreaded OSCEs.
