CSA Cases Workbook 2e is a unique workbook designed to be used by GP revision groups practising for the CSA examination –  it is written by three GPs who recently passed the CSA.

Building on the success of the first edition, this new edition includes over 20 new cases aligned to the RCGP curriculum areas and latest guidelines. The ringbound design makes the practice consultations as exam-like as possible – allowing each member of the revision group to act as ‘doctor’, ‘patient’ or ‘observer’ and to take out just the pages they need ahead of the next revision session.

Along with easy to use marking schemes for every case, the cases also now include smartphone links to guide readers to useful resources.

To help further with revision, each curriculum area is split up into:
possible cases – lists the cases most likely to come up in the CSA (including emergency and ‘special’ cases)
revision notes – fully updated to provide the latest NICE and SIGN guidelines, along with other helpful references and websites, to help direct your revision
material for the patient – a list of resources that you could usefully guide the patient towards in the consultation (including after you have passed the CSA!)
practice explanations – topics, tests and procedures that you should be able to describe to the patient in a couple of minutes
practice examinations – procedures you should be able to undertake confidently

Furthermore, the authors suggest a combination of 13 cases which could be used to run your own mock exam in preparation for the real thing.

Your revision group needs just a single copy of CSA Cases Workbook rather than multiple copies of any other book, and no photocopying needed either!
