Retrieved on: 10 October Anaesthesia , 67, a review of applicable basic sciences and a synopsis of current reports and guidelines. An appendix lists the Primary and Final syllabus and examination regulations.
Clinical Notes for the FRCA stands out from its contemporaries on the basis of its scope and succinctness; it covers the majority of the Final FRCA syllabus but is still easily portable.
Its layout is clear and engaging, with the body of text broken up by headings, diagrams, tables and boxes. The grey boxes found throughout the text, highlighting current guidelines and key reports, are a particularly helpful revision aid.
Each chapter section concludes with a list of key references to relevant papers and core texts. It is difcult to mention any weaknesses in this book. I found the appendix detailing the syllabus an unnecessary addition; however, some may nd it useful to help structure their revision. The books brevity may be viewed by some as a aw, but I found it an advantage: the author highlights the areas that need to be covered providing readers with both a structure for their revision and sufcient information about a vast array of subjects, then directs further reading around the topic.
I have found Clinical Notes for the FRCA to be an excellent resource for both assisting my revision and highlighting gaps in my knowledge. Either way, it has proved extremely useful in the daunting task of revising for the Final FRCA examination, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone in a similar position.
