  • 100 Diseases for the Mrcp: Part 2
    Tim Gray, Miles Witham


    This title provides a source of information on 100 of the diseases that crop up frequently in the MRCP Part II written exam. The highly structured format should allow information to be found easily, and the information included is in a form that is directly relevant to answering such MRCP questions. A few sample questions have been included to illustrate how the features of certain grey cases or data questions point towards specific diagnoses. One of the striking features of the MRCP Part II exam is the frequency with which certain diseases crop up in questions, either in data interpretation questions or in "grey cases". These diseases are often multi-system in nature, with a variety of abnormalities to be found on routine investigation results. As a result, they are excellent subjects on which to set questions. However, many of these diseases are uncommon in clinical practice, and finding accessible, concise information on them is not always easy. In many instances, lists of associations with other conditions, and results of common investigations, are difficult to find yet crucial to correct interpretation of questions. This book provides a concise, easily accessible source of information on 100 of the diseases that crop up frequently in the MRCP Part II written exam. The highly structured format allows information to be found easily, and the information included is in a form that is directly relevant to answering such MRCP questions. A few sample questions have been included to illustrate how the features of certain grey cases or data questions point towards specific diagnoses. This book is for all MRCP candidates (mostly in the UK, but it will be of use to final year clinical medical students elsewhere.)


  • Rapid Review of Clinical Medicine for MRCP: Pt. 2
    S. Sharma (Editor)


    The aim of the book is to provide the busy doctor with a comprehensive review of the most popular cases and data interpretation questions in preparation for the MRCP Part 2 and equivalent examinations in internal medicine. A broad range of subjects is covered in 175 questions including cardiology, nephrology, respiratory diseases, neurology, haematology, rheumatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, genetics, metabolic medicine/biochemical disorders, toxicology/drug side-effects and environmental medicine, dermatology and infectious diseases. Precise answers and detailed discussion follow each question. Where appropriate important differential diagnoses, diagnostic algorithms and 135 up to date medical lists are presented. Short tutorials are included to aid the interpretation of illustrated material as well as important, and sometimes difficult, clinical data such as respiratory function tests, cardiac catheter data and dynamic endocrine tests. To aid examination technique, answers to difficult questions are presented showing scores from highest to lowest. The book will prove invaluable to all young doctors studying for higher exams in internal medicine and to medical tutors preparing post graduate examinations.

  • Photographic Interpretation Questions: MRCP Part 2 (The Complete MRCP)
    H.L.C. Beynon


    The Complete MRCP is a series of 3 books that cover the whole of the written section of the Part 1 and Part 2 exams for the College of Physicians qualifications. All three books were originally written by registrars and senior registrars, all of whom were closely involved in Membership-level teaching. As a result they are the books most highly regarded by those preparing for the exams and they are essential for all those taking the qualification. The MRCP itself is a very difficult professional qualification. It is jointly organised by the three UK Royal Colleges of Physicians - Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The format of the exam is constantly changing to reflect the patterns of medicine and roughly 4000 candidates apply to take the MRCP every year. This book covers the 3rd element of the Part 2 MRCP exam - colour photograph questions. It contains 150 colour illustrations covering a wide range of clinical conditions with related questions which are in the form encountered in the exam itself. The photographs inclue radiographs, blood films and pathological examples. The questions give a certain amount of relevant history to help the candidate make the most appropriate diagnosis. The answers are very detailed and should aid the candidate in revision. Features: * Regarded as one of the best books for this part of the exam * Part of a series of three books which apply to all parts of the written exam * Written by people who really know what the MRCP is like * Very detailed case histories and answers

  • Data Interpretation Questions and Case Histories: MRCP Part 2 (Complete MRCP S.)
    H.L.C. Beynon


    The complete MRCP is a series of three books that cover the whole of the written section of the Part 1 and Part 2 exams for the College of Physicians qualifications. All three books were originally written by registrars and senior registrars, all of whom were closely involved in membership-level teaching. As a result they are the books most highly regarded by those preparing for the exams and they are essential for all those taking the qualification. The MRCP itself is a very difficult professional qualification. It is jointly organized by the three UK Royal Colleges of Physicians - Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The format of the exam is constantly changing to reflect the patterns of medicine and roughly 4000 candidates apply to take the MRCP every year. The written part of the Part 2 exam comprises data interpretation questions based on laboratory results on ECG readings), grey cases, and colour photograph questions. This book covers the first two of these. It is a book of 150 cases which cover interpretation of laboratory or other results (such as ECGs) presented in the form of case histories. Increasingly the photographic part of the exam is being used in the case histories, so for this edition some cases with colour photographs are included.
