Highly Commended - BMA Awards 2007
"I intended to buy this book having used its previous edition on many occasions. Thankfully the BMA must have read my mind and provided me with this truly invaluable resource."
I would definitely recommend this book. It is well-structured and comprehensive, and systematically breaks down every aspect of the OSCE. Although this book is not a replacement for clinical examination books, it is a good overview that can be skimmed through. What I like about it is it can put you at ease, as having read through it you feel a lot more prepared and know what to expect. It is definitely the book to read in the run up to an OSCE!

...user-friendly and well indexed, making it easy to dip-into whenever one needs to...The authors are experienced OSCE examiners themselves and provide the reader with a host of useful "top-tips" in approaching the examinations, from exam preparation through to common exam mistakes and how to avoid them!...pitched at just the right level for clinical medical students and as a practical guide to core clinical skills it has succeeded in delivering the goods.

I was very impressed with this book. It covers all components of final year OSCE and suggests useful tactics for dealing with the various types of assessments the student may be asked to perform...It also addresses the communication aspects of the OSCE clearly demonstrating where students may lose easy marks in an OSCE. It suggests some questions that examiners may ask and is excellent preparation for the real life OSCE...I would definitely recommend this book.
