I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone sitting the examination.
It is an entire OSCE preparatory course in just 256 pages.

This book is a necessary book for preparation for the OSCEs of MRCOG Part 2. It is well structured and covers all the aspects of the exam. As far as I know it is the only book which covers sufficiently popular topics like instruments, procedures etc. The marking scheme is detailed and complete. If I had to buy only one book for OSCEs this would be definitely the one.
5 Stars: Must buy book for MRCOG
