Oxford Assess and Progress: Clinical Specialties is the ideal self-assessment tool for students looking to test their knowledge of the core clinical specialties. Fully cross-referenced to the ninth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties, this compact volume contains hundreds of questions on a wide spectrum of conditions across the specialties.

This new edition contains over 350 Single Best Answer and Extended Matching questions addressing core clinical topics and professional skills. Each answer is marked with a progression point to help the reader to track their progress and revise effectively.

User’s Review:

Review Review from previous edition: “For any medical students in their clinical years, this is the best MCQ book I have seen yet for preparing for written exams, and I highly recommend buying it.” ―Sophie Merrick, Student, University of Manchester”Finally an Oxford Handbook MCQ book. Just as fantastic as its big brother the OHCS, this is the essential accompaniment to this text. Packed full of MCQs and EMQs it is the perfect revision guide to test your knowledge. It has detailed explanations for each answer as well as referencing you back to the OHCS should you wish to learn more. Singularly one of the best MCQ books on the market as not only does it test, but it teaches, and with the cross referencing you can save time trying to read around the topic as you know just exactly where you need to go. A perfect new MCQ book for medical students and junior doctors.” ―D. Pilkington, Student, University of Manchester

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:

⭐ I found these questions helpful in studying for my final med exams. The questions covered the specialties i needed to learn. The topics i felt were a little different to what is covered in other texts so it was a good practice to break away from the standard questions.Compared to other texts, the answers are not very detailed and hence i often had to look up other texts for more information rather than being all in the one book. I guess this was a compromise for the ‘pocket’ size, but personally I mostly used it at home and would have preferred more detail.Worthwhile if you have covered the other ‘main’ MCQ texts and looking for something a little different

⭐ This book was probably the best in terms of layout and classifying the difficulty of questions. It made it clear what knowledge was a must and what was at the higher end of achieving top grades.

⭐ all okay thanks.

⭐ Necessity for PLAB 1 exam. They need to update the questions as EMQs have been stopped from November 2012.

⭐ good book

⭐ It helps me to remember and there are references to the clinical specialty book that guides me to the page and information to read through.This book is recommended

⭐ I liked the book. Didn’t use it as much as I liked but was pitched at the right level. Some questions a little obvious. Good answers for descriptions. But definitely have a look around, as I feel other books may be just as good.
