Like the rest of the get through series this is very exam focused and has been great for highlighting gaps in my knowledge.
I'm a crammer and pouring through past paper questions is the most effective way for me to learn. The questions are well pitched and usually have some amount of explanation in the answers to help your understanding.
A few issues with this book:
1. the X-ray films are too small for you to make many of the findings that they expect and lack enough contrast.
2. There are a few mistakes with missing sub questions - that then magically there are answers for later. There are also a few mistakes - I don't recommend putting in a chest drain in the midclavicular line as they advocate! These are a little bit annoying.
Overall this is well worth a look and if I pass I will say if was definitely worth the investment!
