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.
