'The long case OSCE examination is, without doubt, one of the most daunting for medical students whenever it is encountered.' From the Preface A solid knowledge base and good clinical skills don't necessarily guarantee examination success in the long case OSCE. This book really is the ultimate guide for medical students needing to combine their knowledge and skills with an ability to interpret the clinical findings, the proficiency to present them clearly and the confidence to deal with the examiner's questions. Adopting a proven, highly effective approach, this revision aid uses role play with simulated patients to hone clinical examination and presentation skills. The 50 cases are divided into six areas: cardiology, respiratory, abdominal, neurology, musculoskeletal and surgical. Written by successful candidates and examiners', the guide poses a number of important and commonly asked examination questions for each case to assist in preparation and confidence, and model answers are provided to ensure an understanding of exactly what is required. Working in groups or independently, students will welcome the large, colourful format, the breakdown of marking schemes, an overview of examiners' expectations, a guide to presenting clinical findings and innumerable 'insider' tips throughout.
