This book represents a much needed and valuable resource for those preparing for the FRCS in General Surgery. Its timing is particularly valuable for those preparing for the newly introduced International FRCS.
I understand the authors have all recently passed the examination themselves and the format and questions are all well laid out and provide a full range of relevant questions at an appropriate level of difficulty.
The chapters are divided into the relevant sub-specialties of general surgery with the answers providing clear explanations and appropriate references.
Whilst this book on its own will not allow you to pass the examination, it provides an excellent self-assessment tool which is rich in content of material relevant to this examination.
This will be a good investment for anyone planning to take this examination.
