I discovered this book in a hospital library and decided I needed it pernamently in my life! Its really handy as it goes through OSCE topics in order of how likely they are to come up and what questions you're likely to be asked. It also goes through the examinations with relevant details and highlights what you need to concentrate on for each diagnosis in order to reach a differential. I really wish there was an alternative about OSCE's in medicine, but this little gem will be the core of my revision for surgical OSCE's.

This book is good for letting you know what might come up in the MRCS clinical exam. However, it suffers from a lack of detail and is completely bereft of any pictures or colour. Now I know several colleagues of mine who swore by this book, but for me, the other book by Parchment Smith is a better albeit more expensive buy.

Delighted with this purchase- it arrived ahead of time, in perfect condition, and containing some of the best clinical tips I've read. Truly a pleasure to flick through it in free time, and eminently rewarding to spend an hour or two at it.

This is an extremely useful book for those preparing for the Exit FRCS exam. I do recommend it strongly. It gives excellent orientation to the Clinical exam. It can also be useful for the final MRCS clinical as well.

Really helped to polish my examination skills and OSCE techniques. I used this book extensively and practised with my friends - afterwards examination was a doddle - easy peasy! Highly recommend it.

I just smashed out Part B of MRCS in May 2012. To be honest if you need a clinical book to help you on examinations than you either did not pay attention in medical school or you have not examined any patient properly since. This book is detailed but in a frustrating fashion. The abdominal system is dissected to pieces when OHCM can summarise the salient points in two pages. But as a piece of academic inquiry this book is superb. True depth to make you think but not needed for the exam.

I got this book on the recommendation of my classmates for the final med clinics in surgery (ie the short cases). Some parts of it are excellent but you have to be careful not to get bogged down in the detail - remember this is designed for postgraduate exams so there really is no need to know it all! Use your common sense to pick out what you think could come up. I found the lumps and bumps section particularly good and it really helped me with my short cases.

The 2nd edition now has photos and colours! It's a nice upgrade from the 1st edition with the same compact and helpful notes. Recommended by my surgical tutor and was not disappointed by it. Off note, it's a worthwhile investment for clinical year students and you'll never be short of a buyer if you feel like selling it after you graduated

Bought this before my clinical exams and must say it was a life saver. has lots of little tips and tricks that you usually only pick up by actually attanding clinics, so is brilliant if you've never had to examine varicose veins before, and is also great for jogging the memory if you've forgotten. the presentations are listed in the order they are most likley to come up, and the questions after each presentation help you to think about what your gonna get asked about afterwards! really useful book, and small enough to take with you when you walk the dog. 10/10.

Written for the old style exam but def good for the new one, get it, in relation to the cost of the exam, then it is worth it and there will always be someone to buy it off you!!!!
