Written in a succinct, user-friendly manner and covers the main components of the syllabus. As a revision guide this works very well... This book is well worth the investment and would definitely recommend it to colleagues preparing for their membership exams.

5 Stars: Readable and concise - a valuable tool for exam preparation!
I like this book - it is easy to read, contains most key points for the exams and is not too heavy to carry around! There are other books which also cover similar material and perhaps have more photos/pictures, but I find that in particular, this book is good for getting information across quickly and in an organised manner. The topics are arranged in the format of exam revision headings, and within each topic, clear headings, subheadings and bullet points make memorising for exams so much less taxing! I would definitely recommend this useful tool as a textbook to read when preparing for stressful exams e.g. MRCPCH 1.

In my opinion as a final year student, it is beyond the level of knowledge that a student would be expected to know so you certainly shouldn't use it to learn cover to cover for finals. However on the conditions that you are expected to know and you're the type who likes reading revision notes then this could appeal for you. If you're interested in Paediatrics as a future career as well then this would be a good investment for your future as well as to use at this time. There are some diagrams, though certainly not as many as in other titles so not necessarily the best if you're a visual learner.
In conclusion, this title could be useful in your revision though not as a fist line book, I would encourage you to get Crash Course Paediatrics or Paediatrics at a Glance in preference to this if you only want to revise for finals, as an investment for the future it may be useful though.
