The newly added questions cover important topics such as:

Questions and answers have been comprehensively updated to reflect changes in management of clinical and administrative areas, with references and weblinks updated throughout. This new edition features even more questions in every format:

The book has been favourably reviewed by trainees, trainers and programme directors alike and is on the recommended reading lists of a number of VTS schemes. It is essential reading for candidates preparing for the AKT and also for training practices and libraries. It has been used by trainers to plan teaching sessions and tutorials and by established GPs to help them with appraisal and revalidation.


From reviews of previous editions:

Just had my AKT results and they were well above the average… This book is clearly laid out and I feel acts as a good supplement to online revision and fills in the gaps online revision can leave.


This is a good road testing for those who face into the AKT… the questions are clear and easily understood. The picture quality is excellent. The answers are informative and provide useful revision...
