This book was wonderful in helping me through my acute medical attachment and was a brilliant aid in revision for final exams. The mix of SBAs and EMQs was very useful in testing my knowledge and are the same style of those used in finals. Having detailed answers and feedback really helped me consolidate the more difficult topics. With each question assigned a 'star rating' I know it will be useful in my future career when hopefully I shall be able to get more of the difficult questions right!' Caroline Rance, Student, University of Southampton, School of Medicine
