    "For final year students aiming to start their pre-reg year this July, this book is undeniable a good investment. The first section is a much needed review of exam technique... The second part deals with the 10 sections of the professional exams and gives excellent advice on preparation, with comments from experienced examiners and useful examples of typical viva questions. The sections also dispel some PQE myths and hopefully help the reader to order their pre-reg year revision and experience, and also reasure those about to sit the exam." Bill Harvey, Optician, June 2004

    Nigel Thrush, New Zealand Optics Magazine December 2004
    "A broad and relevant knowledge base. A clear, uniform and well set out chapter structure is used. I seriously recommend that any student studies hard and jumps through the hoops in exactly the way the tutors in this book suggest."
