This book helps you to revise and prepare for the CSA part of the MRCGP exam. The latest edition features an additional four sections:

• dietary advice for malnourished patients

• ectopic pregnancy

• patient refusing emergency management

• wheeze in preschool children

A standardised format is used to help you to improve your:

  • data gathering – a broad range of appropriate questions to ask the patient are provided and red flags are highlighted where appropriate
  • interpersonal skills – each clinical problem is described using terms that you can use in your explanations to patients

  • clinical management – tells you which examinations to consider, which investigations to order, and how to manage each clinical problem based on the latest guidelines and current best practice

  • consultations – to help you practise, every clinical case features a realistic role play scenario. 

The book is designed to be used as a workbook, with wide margins to allow you to add in your own notes, questions and other aides-memoires. Used in this way, CSA Revision Notes for the MRCGP is the ideal book to help you successfully prepare for the exam.

 Some five-star Amazon reviews of earlier editions:

This book is a must have for GP trainees revising for the CSA. It is cleverly structured into problems that patients present with and covers all the areas that will be required for you in the CSA.”

This is an excellent aid to preparing for the CSA exam. I particularly like the scenarios given for role play that facilitate practising with a study partner. I would recommend it for GP registrars, VTS groups and GP trainers.

Excellent resource for MRCGP prep. Nice layout. Simple. Easy to read leading up to the exam when you want to quickly cover the curriculum.
