This latest edition has been comprehensively updated to include new information on the latest clinical evidence, national guidelines, and from the recent medical literature:
- all existing cases have been revised
- new cases have been added to cover pre-diabetes and premature ejaculation
- psoriasis, sore throat, thyroid disease and the PSA test are covered in even more detail
The first three editions have helped thousands of candidates through the CSA exam. The original approach has therefore been retained so the book continues to offer readers a concise ‘need-to-know’ guide to passing the CSA, with the emphasis on successfully completing a case in the allotted ten minutes using a structured consultation framework that works.
The aim of the book is to leave exam candidates with more time to concentrate on passing the CSA exam itself.
Section 1: An approach to the CSA
Section 2: Special GP cases
Section 3: Typical cases

Superb CSA Resource "I am a GP Trainer and found this book an excellent resource whilst helping my current ST3 prepare for his CSA.
It provides a succinct evidence based summary for clinical scenarios and gives a great range to help cover the RCGP curriculum.
The summary of the guidelines used is helpful to signpost trainees to the most up-to-date guidelines to help consolidate any learning.
I would definitely recommend this as a resource to carry around whilst preparing for the CSA!" Amazon reviewer
Great Book! "I recently sat my CSA and used this book. It is very well laid out with excellent consultation examples and guidance to practice with. It was especially good for group learning and the layout is very user friendly and allows you to revise independently using the example "management" section of the book. I would thoroughly recommend this as a CSA resource." Amazon reviewer
