This book acts to instill principles of medicine by explaining the "why" and there is enough variation in questions to keep most students content; it is not the best source for acquiring clinical accumen or decision making however. There aren't enough questions geared towards the clinical problem solving as one would expect in their finals; rather majority of questions are based on clinical knowledge (which is important too, however problem solving questions feature a significant component in most medical schools...). Further, as other reviewers have already indicated, there are mistakes through the book (although this should not deter you and it may be used as a challenge for yourself to identify these).

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...)

Although a bit pricey for a glorified quizz this book is perfect for anyone sitting medical MCQ/EMQ questions. It is set out by system for ease of use and includes comprehensive answers explaining thoroughly the reasons for the correct answer. Questions range in difficulty and are most useful for clinical examples of the theory - these are not basic science questions.

I'm coming to the end of 3rd year, and with the end of year exams just around the corner i've found this book really helpful for revision. There's a good mix of questions pitched at an appropriate level with the sort of typical questions i would expect to come up in exams; all the answers are explained well with good reasoning. I own quite a few EMQ books, and i've found this book a good alternative to the others i've used.

This book was a great buy for finals. The explanations are really detailed, so you can learn a lot. Theres so many questions! A really good mix of difficulty- I often find that theres not enough challenging questions in these books, but the ones in this were great. It was well laid out, and such a great learning resource. Definitely get this for your finals, you wont regret it!

I personally liked the book as a third year medic who has just finished the year. It had everything you expect from an EMQ book and also helped me a lot for my exams... cannot ask for more! Definitely would recommend it.

This book is obviously formatted with the oxford clinical handbook in mind as all questions ran in the same order as the book and often if you did the questions and went back to OCH it was sometimes was just the text written in the format of a question. so a good question book if you are using OCH and breaks up revision

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.

500 SBA in medicine is a must have book for any medical students that rely on SBA questions for examinations. The level of questions are very well suited for students of any level. The layout of the book is easy to follow and well structured in its chapters. The best part of the book is its indepth discussion of the answers. A trivial but important inclusion is the table of normal biochemical values which is sometimes absent even in the most specilist books. Although there was some dispute between some questions, most of them were highly accurate when compared with other literature. In conclusion this is a great exam companion which covers all areas of medicine and one which I greatly recommend. Congratulations to the authors and thank you!

this book is an invaluable revision tool for final year students! it covers the full range of topics which crop up in finals, provides a healthy number of questions with detailed explanations which reinforces material you've already learnt or amply explains topics you've missed. the real advantage of this is the level of difficulty separating this book from other question books. I've found other books far too predictable eg publican with liver disease, Indian with tb. this book takes things further and provides useful explanations to further your knowledge. overall an absolute must for anyone wanting to do more than pass medical finals!
