Format: Paperback
This is the best OSCE book I've ever come across (and I do own a huge number of OSCE books!)

Its good because its easy to read, easy to skim through just before exams, is very comprehensive - covers most of the major specialities and important topics - and gives you common questions (and the answers!) related to that station.

Definitely worth buying!

I'm about halfway through this now and am really enjoying using it. Like the other books in this series it is very well designed with plenty of diagrams and images, especially for explaining signs to look for. It gives helpful hints and tips for those few extra marks. It goes through each examination exactly the way I have been taught in 3-4th year (similar to Maclouds) so was useful for me. I imagine if your med school does anything different than the inspect-hands-head-neck-chest sort of approach this might confuse you?

Apart from going over each system and examination, it also gives sample histories and discussions you can go over and also all the practical skills. It also has surgery, paeds, ob/gyn, psych, ENT and a specific dermo section for practise identifying/describing lesions etc.

I think it covers absolutely everything I could need to know for OSCES. Though of course it doesnt replace actually practising on patients/friends which is essential.

I estimate it would take about a week to go through this cover-cover and I'd highly recommend final years to do just that to be fully prepared for any OSCE station that might be thrown at us.

This book was a dream come true. I only wish it had been published earlier so I could have used it for my end of year OSCE in 4th year. It covers history and clinical exam in all the relevant systems in Medicine and surgery, as well as dermatology, ophthalmology, paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology. It goes through likely cases for OSCEs, the relevant history and exam and the likely questions you'd get asked all in a colourful student friendly format. This book has almost everything you'll need for clinical exams all the way to final med. It also has sections at the start on practical skills like cannulation and communication skills. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Although I havent undertaken my final year OSCEs yet, this book is the answer to my revision prayers. Its goes over all the points of history and examinations per core problem that you would need to provide during any OSCE station. Further it provides advice about data interpretation.

Very pleased with this product. Another super book from the "at a glance" range.
