The Unofficial Guide to Radiology: Lynn S. Editorial Reviews Review This book presents a wide range of example scenarios that will ensure that you think in a logical manner and allow you to practice the stations, therefore reducing the anxiety when you perform under assessment.
Each station contains instructions for the student, an extensive mark scheme and realistic directions for the patient so that your revision is as similar to the real exam as possible. Using this resource will guide your OSCE revision, enabling you to progress in skill and gain formative feedback. Questions at the end of each station test your knowledge or force you to think logically when giving a sensible suggestion if you're not quite sure! This book has been written and reviewed by doctors and students who know what medical schools like to examine on, therefore it is a focused, up-to-date and universally applicable resource for the clinical years of training.
Contributed to by medical trainees and students, it provides a clear, compact outline to OSCE mark schemes.
It addition to mark schemes, the book provides valuable factual information in the format of questions and answers. The interactive format allows for both solo and group revision. There is the opportunity to mark practice stations and start discussions using the additional questions sections.
It is a key revision tool for any medical student wanting to master the OSCEs. Emily Hotton, final year medical student, Bristol University This book aims to structure revision for the objective structure clinical examinations OSCEs with a catalog of example stations to enable medical students to perform mock OSCEs. Therefore it is suitable for both medical students in their early clinical years and those approaching their final year OSCEs.
The cornerstone of the book is that the authors are medical students and junior doctors who have recently completed the OSCEs successfully. The authors therefore, are thought to be in the best position to understand the requirements of a revision guide that addresses the challenges of OSCE preparation. The editor also makes a bold attempt to interact with the target audience, through inviting readers to contribute to future editions with their advice and experiences of OSCEs.
Therefore the editors hope to keep the book relevant to future students. Having been reviewed by senior clinicians, readers are reassured of the book's clinical accuracy.
As is the case in the OSCE, the book divides each station into a vignette for candidates, instructions or history for the simulated patient and a mark scheme for the assessor followed by questions with answers. In this way the book holds true to the principle of 'acquiring medical knowledge in a fun and memorable way'. The editors have taken care in presenting large amounts of information on each page in an organized manner. The book is especially suited to those students who find plenty of colour and images help reinforce their knowledge rather than being a source of distraction.
Whilst the clinical scenarios are detailed and good to learn from, only one clinical scenario is provided for each specialty; for instance the only cardiology history is for just one of the many differential diagnoses of chest pain.
This is the limitation of a single revision guide encompassing almost every common type of station for each specialty that is of a manageable size. The book also expects its readers have previously practiced clinical and communication skills as it does not teach readers how to perform these, nor does it give examples of possible phrases to use in communication skills stations.
This book can be used early in the revision process to identify key areas one needs to focus revision on and periodically to check progress through regular mock OSCEs.
It provides candidates with practical tips which other books may overlook, for both revision and the exam itself thus confirming the writers' proficiency as authors of an OSCE revision guide. It is reassuring to the reader and congruent with the aim of making students confident candidates to pass OSCEs. I needed some help to understand what exactly the stations would entail, what the examiners were looking for and what sort of questions we would be asked.
This book is a great guide to what the OSCEs are actually like and how to go about them. Other books help you learn about clinical techniques, such as how to perform opthalmoscopy. However, they tend not to explain the type of instruction you will be given or the questions you might be asked.
Knowing these things makes it much easier for you to feel confident and you definitely need to appear confident when dealing with OSCE examiners. Perfect for practicing close to exams!
A must have for finals in my opinion! Shamit Shah, Medical Student. He graduated with Distinction from the University of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education.
Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: Product details File Size: March 15, Sold by: English ASIN: Enabled X-Ray: Not Enabled.

Arrived on time, Got it as advertised. I am Happy with my purchases. This book was very clear and concise. The large clear images were a superb tool for visual learning and the mark schemes that shortly followed were again very useful tools for adequate preparation.
Each image was considered individually and in a systematic way. This meant that accumulating knowledge about signs and symptoms was a lot easier than if they had been spread throughout the chapter.
I found these to be very useful for reviewing knowledge. The sections covered a great deal of content and provided an excellent review of a vast array of OSCE stations.
I would highly recommend this book to any medical student preparing for an OSCE. This book belongs on every medical student's shelf next to the larger green book in the same series! One of the difficulties with OSCE's is the inflexibility of the mark scheme and even the most talented of medical students may find that they miss out on marks due to this.
However, with this book which breaks down the mark scheme's, medical students now have a guide with which they can tailor their preparation for these exams and ensure they get the maximum amount of marks! Need to practise your clinical examination with your revision buddy?
