This is a book of self-assessment questions based on the current medical literature, with full references to recent papers and full explanatory answers. The questions are based on research papers and reflect the increasing importance of basic science in clinical medicine. The book contains useful appendices to assist candidates in their exam preparation. For the Second Edition the format of the questions will be a mixture of true/false multiple-choice questions, best of five questions and viva-style questions, thus making the book suitable not just for the new format of the MRCP Part 1 exam but also for the PACES clinical exam.

• An outline format helps readers find information quickly.

• "Hints and Tips" boxes offer advice on how to remember key content.

• Features page tabs for quick navigation.

• A wealth of 2-color illustrations bring the material to life.

• Authored by house officers who have inside knowledge of exactly what information is needed on a day-to-day basis.
