Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access
Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access
"At the moment, a number of new textbooks are hitting the market. This is a book most people have used since medical school and covers the basics even if not completely comprehensive  in all areas"
Child Development: An Illustrated Guide, DVD Edition (Book & DVD)
Child Development: An Illustrated Guide, DVD Edition (Book & DVD)
"Recommended by the college, although not advertised until clinicals,  an excellent way to learn development for those who need lots of pictures."
Easy Paediatrics
Easy Paediatrics
"A new book aimed at the DCH/GPs. It's very well written and easy to digest. If you need to learn the 'core' side of paediatrics, I'd recommend this to help establish a foundation to build on though it is a little basic in places"
Essential Revision Notes in Paediatrics for MRCPCH
Essential Revision Notes in Paediatrics for MRCPCH
"Good as a reference text for background reading. However it is very list based and not easy to read and remember everything. Comprehensive but should not be your primary text"
Paediatric Neurology in Clinical General Practice: Common Neurological Problems in General Pediatrics
Paediatric Neurology in Clinical General Practice: Common Neurological Problems in General Pediatrics
"I'm just going to mention this very small book as it's one of the best concise guides to approaching the complex topic that is paediatric neurology which is overcomplicated in other texts"
Paediatric Exams: A Survival Guide, 2e (MRCPCH Study Guides)
Paediatric Exams: A Survival Guide, 2e (MRCPCH Study Guides)
"My primary text for the 1b and part 2 exams. Easy and quick to read through, talks through less well understood exam conditions and investigations. On the thin side and doesn't cover community paeds"
MRCPCH Master Course: Volume 1 & 2 (MRCPCH Study Guides): Vol. 2
MRCPCH Master Course: Volume 1 & 2 (MRCPCH Study Guides): Vol. 2
"In retrospect, I'd AVOID this. It's endorsed by the college but it's too vague and waffly. The dvd's ok, but the website hasnt had an update since creation. Comes nowhere near justifying its price"
Concise Paediatrics, Second Edition
Concise Paediatrics, Second Edition
"Not for everyone due to the listlike approach (less so than item 4) but one of the better paediatric textbooks covering most of the syllabus"
Training in Paediatrics (Oxford Specialty Training: Training In)
Training in Paediatrics (Oxford Specialty Training: Training In)
"At first glance, looks brilliant in terms of layout and topics covered. However there isn't much 'meat' to get stuck into to learn the topics to the level you need for the exams"
250 Questions for the MRCPCH Part 2, 2e (MRCPCH Study Guides)
250 Questions for the MRCPCH Part 2, 2e (MRCPCH Study Guides)
"Unfortunately for the part 1 and part 2 written you're going to be doing a lot of questions. Pastest online is a start. Not really worth buying most MCQ books as you only use em once - use the library"
Questions for the MRCPCH Part 2 Written Examination
Questions for the MRCPCH Part 2 Written Examination
"The book above is an odds and sods book for data interpretation. This one's one of the more challenging short answer books with some of the best explanations"
Picture Tests for the MRCP (Paediatrics) (MRCPCH Study Guides)
Picture Tests for the MRCP (Paediatrics) (MRCPCH Study Guides)

Short Cases, History Taking and Communication Skills for the Paediatric Membership
Short Cases, History Taking and Communication Skills for the Paediatric Membership

250 Cases in Clinical Medicine (MRCP Study Guides)
"Have I gone mad? Yes it's an adult book but most of this one is still pretty relevant to paediatric practice, examination schemes, and questions that make you think through clinical questions"
Advanced Paediatric Life Support: The Practical Approach
Advanced Paediatric Life Support: The Practical Approach
"A resus course is essential as the ABC approach and approach to wheeze is constantly tested. Also look at the college website which points out guideline changes across the entire of paediatrics"
Examination Paediatrics, 4e
Examination Paediatrics, 4e
"If you need the theory for the clinical, read through this one. It is a long read to a pretty high standard though, so start a few months before the exam"
Short Cases for the MRCPCH
Short Cases for the MRCPCH
"Indispensible for part 2. Full color, easy to read and covers the majority of clinical shortcases. Cases also help written candidates visualise the theory as applied to actual children"
Circuits for the MRCPCH, 1e (MRCPCH Study Guides)
Circuits for the MRCPCH, 1e (MRCPCH Study Guides)

"This is just a placeholder to say - good luck. For the part 1 you need theory and lots of questions. For part 2 you need more theory and lots of clinical exposure. Have fun"
