This book provides a complete revision aid for the new OSCE-style MRCPCH clinical exam. It is designed and written to be as close as possible to the actual exam. Each chapter is a 'circuit' and will include all the written stations. The questions are laid out in exactly the same format as the exam, and the answers are written in a friendly style by authors who have recently been through the process and can offer valuable hints and tips.
Sample questions mimic exam conditions - there are no clues to the answers, as is usually the case in more traditional system-based books.
The fully explanatory answers provide not only clinical information but a framework for answering similar questions - extremely useful on the actual day of the exam.
Can be used at the beginning of the revision process - to check progress and highlight weaknesses.
Can also be used as a last-minute check right at the end of revision - to be sure all bases have been covered.
Ideal for group revision work, especially for the communication and role-play stations.
