The Final FRCA Structured Oral Examination: A Complete Guide

The Final FRCA Structured Oral Examination is the last step before earning the initials FRCA and becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. This comprehensive revision aid has been compiled by two talented authors who have been running a course on this subject for three years. Motivated to make the cases as close as possible to the exam, they have collected a vast database of questions from their trainees and the book reflects a variety of commonly asked themes. In addition, there are contributions from 11 consultants and registrars, who are all experts in their fields.
The clear layout and easy to read style prepares students for the examination environment and focuses on the specific areas and responses examiners look for. The style of questions mimics the exam and there are added tutorials for ECG interpretation and radiology which will benefit trainees immensely in their preparation.
