This revision book for the clinical skills assessment (CSA) portion of the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) exams includes a range of scenarios representative of those candidates will encounter, each created with direct input from an MRCGP examiner. The book enables candidates to role-play the scenarios with colleagues, providing notes for both candidates and actors. The book's structure follows the scheme of the exam, covering information gathering, clinical management and interpersonal skills. It includes sections focusing specifically on the history, examination and management plan for scenarios, while table summaries help candidates to focus on key areas. Each chapter concludes with a tutorial of relevant information and a suggested reading list. 'What the authors have developed in this text is a guide to excellence in this assessment method: how it runs, how it is structured, how it is marked. Anyone anxious about performance and success in the CSA (and all of us are) will find a practical way to prepare and pass.' - from the Foreword by John Spicer
