Quick Overview
This 2nd edition keeps the same basic theme of conversational style of the book (an examiner asks a question and a candidate provides the typical answer), which recreates the conditions encountered in the real clinical examinations. The approach to each case in the book has been standardised into a unified format that includes the common instructions by examiners encountered in clinical examinations, the common mistakes (pitfalls) committed by candidates, and the typical style of presentation of findings. This is followed by a succinct summary of diagnosis, differential diagnosis, management, and further information usually required in clinical examinations.
Key Features
  • A comprehensive and up-to-date book from the examiner's perspective intended to help postgraduate and undergraduate candidates pass their clinical exams.
  • The first edition of the book was very well-received and was a resounding success. The book has gained wide popularity among international candidates, particularly those preparing for MRCP (UK) PACES, MRCPI, Arab Board, and other clinical exams that use the OSCE format.
  • The second edition keeps the same basic theme of conversational style of the book (an examiner asks a question and a candidate provides the typical answer), which recreates the conditions encountered in the real clinical exams.

  • Particular emphasis has been placed on a highly professional approach to the case, a competent and relevant examination technique according to examiner's instruction, and a concise, professional presentation. This is followed by the questions that are commonly asked by the examiners on each case along with their standard answers, encompassing all aspects of the case.
  • A ""how to examine"" paragraph precedes each case in this book, which emphasises and explains the most competent and professional manner of examination for that case.

  • The list of cases has been expanded to include cases recently encountered by candidates in international clinical exams.
  • All the sections have been thoroughly reviewed and updated based on new information and advancements in the medical field since the publication of the first edition.
  • A section entitled ""how to prepare for and pass your clinical exams"" has been added to explain important practical tips that help candidates plan and prepare for their clinical exams.
  • The number of photos and illustrations has been expanded in this edition to include about 150 photos to improve the candidate's visual learning experience.
