Future editions should feature more questions geared towards identifying the next management option (eg 1st/2nd/3rd line) for patients with common conditions, and the renal section should incorporate more questions on chronic renal failure (there is but 1 question on the most commonly asked renal topic!). Overall I would recommend this book if you are beginning to acquire clinical knowledge across the breadth of medicine but the questions in this book lack substance when it comes to application of that knowledge to more difficult clinical scenarios. So why the recommendation? The answers are thorough and if you read them frequently and understand the reasoning, you should be able to answer nearly 80% of the questions in the SBAs medicine component (this does however require you to understand all the answers provided in detail...)
Some questions were at the right level for me - a third year medical student- for example alimentary, rheumatology, endocrinology were all great.
However the neuro one was challenging in a good way, made me see my weaknesses. BUT - the nephrology ones were wayyyy too difficult and there were often two right answers for the question and the explanations were wrong / not enough information / was whatever the author deemed right and didn't make much sense even after a second go at revising.
