Now onto the details. There's very little anywhere online on what's actually in the book, or how it's laid out. The content is very similar to that on the website, organised under the same sections under the website. I can't find any content that isn't listed on the website, either freely available or 'book only content' so have a look at the website for a contents page.
The book printing is mainly black and white, with glossy coloured insert pages for pictures, which is great. The majority of pages aren't the typical glossy ones you normally see in text books, which some may see as a negative, but it means that I can write notes all over the pages, and highlight bits, without worrying about smudging or transferring.
The content is perfect for medical school clinical years, and final exams. It would also be appropriate for starting foundation years, especially the focussed examinations. The explanations and collated management pages make trawling through NICE guidance much easier. There is a statement that they can't guarantee that the content is up to date/ accurate, but i haven't found anything to be incorrect.
All in all, this is a fantastic book and I'd highly recommend it to any medical student or junior doctor.
The book has an easy to read format and has many relevant sections. For example sections on prescribing and acute scenarios. The colour inserts offer visual aids for both spot diagnoses and following algorithms.
OSCEstop is a website used by myself and many of my hospital colleagues and is therefore a useful resource for both students and doctors. The book goes further to provide more detail than the current website and is a must have for medical students from first to final year.
Thanks for all the hard work that went into this book and the website resources!
