This book has been specifically written to help GP Registrars pass the new MRCGP examination, which is now obligatory for all GP Registrars wishing to become GPs. The areas the book covers includes: background of the assessment and the principles of its development to help candidates understand why the assessment is needed and what it aims to test; a detailed description of the three modules of the assessment: the Applied Knowledge test, the Clinical Skills Assessment, and the Workplace Based Assessment; advice on how best to prepare for the assessment, including advice on reading, but more importantly on using techniques to maximise learning from everyday contact with patients, the GP Trainer, and peers; and, advice and how to maximise performance within the assessment itself. This book is not only an excellent resource for GP Registrars, but it is also a useful guide for GP Trainers who wish to learn more about the new MRCGP assessment.
