"I have tried courses and other books and did not pass last year for GPVTS Stage 3. This time I practised the scenarios in this book with friends and made it through. It not only tells you how to say things but gives you real examples of what to say in the real exam and what to write in the prioritisation exercises. My honest opinion now is that courses are a waste of time. Use this book and practise all the examples with three other friends and you'll know what I mean". (Amazon reader review). "I have found the book best guidance for Stage 3 GP assessment. It contains valuable information about the assessment and many examples of all the 3 parts of the exam". (Amazon reader review).
