Format: Paperback
I have to confess that I contributed a very small amount to this publication, so my review may not be entirely unbiased!

This book is certainly worth a look if you are a medical student wishing to improve your clinical skills. It provides a novel approach to mastering this complex material.

It breaks down the clinical topics into clinical skills, examination, emergency management and common presentations, and provides excellent templates that you can use to test yourself or your clinical partner. There is a neat summary of each topic which makes grasping the essentials much easier than weighty, more detailed reference books. The concept provides a framework for your revision, and you can use the book as you see patients on the wards to ensure you cover the key points. The focus is on thinking of how you would manage the patient in the early, intermediate and later stages with advice on history & examination, investigations, differentials and management.

The book is very comprehensive, covering practical skills such as cannulation and ABG, as well as core clinical topics including history taking and basic examination. There is an excellent section on emergencies and common presentations that really gets to the heart of what you need to know.

I thoroughly suggest you take a look inside the book and see if it is for you.

Once you buy it, you can access the test templates online for free. Extremely useful for finals revision!

My medical school uses these proformas for marking so was very hand for me. Others may however want a more detailed guide. Essential Examination is more detailed but still in the pro-forma format.
