It is designed specifically to fit the examination format, with each double page spread containing a sample question and detailed model answer, acting both as a revision guide and as a template for answering similar questions in the exam. It includes the most recent guidelines and evidence base, whilst also covering in detail areas not included in other revision books. Written by two recent and successful exam candidates, and a highly respected senior anaesthetist, this book holds the key to passing the Final FRCA examination.
