Review quote

... the content and breadth of subject provided by this book is excellent. Reading through the question papers felt like a return to attempting the College papers again. The style of both the question posed and five following stems is well-mirrored to that of the College. The level of detailed knowledge demonstrated in this text is appropriate to the level of the Final FRCA, with occasional completely random anaesthetic or critical care facts that are often bemoaned by candidates in the real thing! There has been a niche in the marketplace for an up-to-date MCQ textbook for a number of years; previous candidates have relied on older publications with irrelevant or now defunct question bases. It is refreshing to finally see a text which addresses this problem and candidates will be gratefully for this new source of MCQ revision... this textbook will become one of the 'must-haves' for Final FRCA candidates. It is modernised, relevant, appropriately detailed and accurate, and left me wishing that it had been present at the time of my exam. -- Dr James Shorthouse MBBS BSc(Hons) FRCA, August 2010 5 Stars: Essential aid to Final FRCA revisionIt is rare to find an MCQ book for the Final FRCA, where the questions match the content and depth of knowledge demanded by the College so accurately. Get Through Final FRCA is pitched at exactly the right level, and with 450 MCQ stems, it gives candidates an ample number of questions to get their teeth into.What sets this book apart from similar multiple choice question books are the detailed answers. These include thorough explanations and further revision material including tables and mnemonics, which are ideal to help increase your basic knowledge of an area when time is short. For more detailed revision, references are provided. An extra useful resource is the comprehensive list of up-to-date guidelines and recommendations that is included at the start of the book ... invaluable to exam preparation, especially for the SAQ and viva parts of the exam.I would recommend this book to candidates preparing for the MCQ part of the final FRCA, for the sheer volume of questions and for the further scope for revision it provides. -- Victoria Wroe MBBS MRCP FRCA - ST4 Anaesthetics 5 Stars: Essential reading for the final MCQ paper!Excellent MCQ book, mainly because the answers are extremely well written. The review of recent important literature at the back of the book is particularly good and saved me hours of trawling through journals. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone sitting the Final FRCA. -- Amazon customer review, Sept 10 5 StarsA succinct and comprehensive book along with fully informative and updated notes and explanations. The questions are well thought out and brilliantly framed. The ready-made list elucidating the guidelines and current evidence at the beginning is actually the highlight of the book, which will also come in handy for SOE preparation.I would most definitely recommend this book for Final FRCA SAQ/MCQ candidates as well as those wishing to seek a list of latest guidelines. -- Amazon customer review, Sept 10 5 Stars: A lot more than just MCQsGet Through Final FRCA: MCQs has been well thought out and researched. The questions are relevant, up to date and varied covering both primary and final topics. The framework for the 450 questions is similar to the real deal and is therefore good practice. The answers are well written ... and references at the end of every explanation made it easier to find more information on the subject.For me what made the book stand out from other books is the list of studies and guidelines relevant to anaesthesia at the end of the book. The fact that the authors are currently still in their rotations and fresh out of their own exam experience has really helped in creating a book that is updated, comprehensive and in sync with the exam. -- Amazon customer review, Oct 10 I would highly recommend this book having used it myself. The explanations are detailed and often act as an opportunity to revise certain key areas required for the exam. It also improves basic knowledge. There are tables, mnemonics and scoring systems and would save the candidate time that would have been spent in looking them up with the questions. I believe it is essential reading material and a wonderful revision tool for everyone planning to take the Final FRCA exam. -- Dr Chima Alexander Oti, Specialist Registrar in Anaesthetics, Oct 10 5 Stars: ExcellentIf colleagues and juniors ask my for a Final FRCA book recommendation, I will without doubt recommend Get Through Final FRCA: MCQs as both an MCQ resource and an overall guide to Finals revision. -- Amazon customer review, Oct 2010
