The reason this book is suited to all those taking the Part 1 exam is because it covers ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, which was previously not the case. As it is a new book, the questions reflect this with increasing focus on digital and CT as well as MRI (and USS). Good to practice prior to the exam after you have base knowledge!
Amazon customer review, Feb 2010
This book is part of the RSM Book Get Through series aimed at doctors in training. It's a pocket size book of multiple choice questions with answers and a mock examination at the end to test yourself. The First Part FRCR exam has gone through some renovation recently so this book is timely and comprehensive.
The questions follow the format of the examination closely. One of the strengths is that each answer has a short explanation (sometimes up to a paragraph) which immediately commands itself. Also, the questions are graded with a star system to give you an indication of the difficulty of each question.
A candidate who is able to answer questions correctly in this book, and has their knowledge supported by thorough revision, will very likely do well in their FRCR Part 1 Physics exam. It is certainly worth the price to see you through the exam.
