The newly introduced Specialty Certificate Examinations are a compulsory component of assessment for all UK medical trainees and represent the final examination barrier before getting the certificate of completion of training. This book provides a unique exam-specific revision guide for the Respiratory specialty certificate exam.
Comprising of best of five test multiple choice questions and revision notes to facilitate targeted study, Revision Notes for the Respiratory Medicine Specialty Certificate Examination is the only book you need to prepare for this important examination. Questions are based around clinical scenarios and supplemented with images of radiological investigations such as x-rays, and lung function tests. Each question is structured as in the exam itself.
The second half of the book comprises of a series of tutorials covering key areas and difficult concepts assessed in the examination including respiratory infection, respiratory malignancy, industrial lung disease, sleep disorders, standard respiratory tests and medical statistics. The combined approach allows trainees to become acquainted with the “best of five” format and facilitate recognition of areas of weakness and targeted study.

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:
⭐ Good for speciality exam, quite concise ,just right for pre examination revision. Includes both multiple choice question n related text.
⭐ I read the other reviews before purchasing, so I realised this book wasn’t going to be comprehensive, but blimey it’s short! It isn’t just that it is written in bullet points, it’s that even then it doesn’t cover what I’d consider the bare minimum.I know others said it would be useful to structure’ their revision, but I don’t really see how it is more useful than looking at the topic list on the RCP website, or better still using the ERS curriculum; both of which you can access for free. Maybe I will use it as a starting point to add my own notes to and then write to publishers…!
⭐ This book may suffice as a revision aid for third year medical students, but it is certainly not sufficient for a practising clinician, let alone the SCE.Explanations are minimal, and the bullet form format does not promote learning.
⭐ This is really, really basic, which means that it’s not going to be the route to SCE success on it’s own, but it did help me quickly sort through topics to pick out what I needed to focus my efforts on.
⭐ Not really very helpful for the sce exam.
⭐ Could be better. Very basic.it looks like copy of Oxford handbook of respiratory medicine.Waste.I won’t recommend to buy.
⭐ Very good guide.
⭐ expensive.. available within 700 rupees
⭐ Recieved in good condition
⭐ This book is written as a set of brief notes, encompassing the main points in each area of respiratory medicine. I found it useful to provide structure for my revision. Although you could not use this book alone to revise, it is very good to use as a reminder of a subject. The example questions at the beginning of the text are helpful too as a self-test.
