More than a question and answer book, this book is a coaching manual. Each section features a combination of model answers, pearls of wisdom, checklists and pointers for further reading. Detailed advice is provided for both Part 1 and Part 2 of the examination. Viva topics that have featured in the exam in recent years have been included. and are supplemented by invaluable editorial contributions from leaders in each of the subspecialties.
