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!
Certainly helpful me pass my OSCE.
Very pleased with this product. Another super book from the "at a glance" range.
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.
