'The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs', now in its 3rd edition, selling copies in over 25 countries in just a year, and between april and july 2012 (peak OSCE revision time), the best selling medical book on amazon. Now comes an exciting new companion book - Candidate Briefings, Patient Briefings, and Mark Schemes: based on readers of the the unofficial guide directly asking for it to be written. This new book, written directly in line with The Unofficial Guide, is designed to help students practically go through a mock OSCE, either with patients in hospital or with friends at home. As with The Unofficial Guide, the following sections are included: Histories, Examination, Orthopaedics, Practical Skills, Communication, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gyaenacology, Radiology, and Psychiatry. Each station contains: A briefing for the actor/patient A briefing for the exam candidate A checklist for the examiner to go through whilst assessing the candidate Questions that the examiner can grill the candidate on (like the real thing!) at the end of the OSCE, including model answers developed with an OSCE examiner, plus even more questions to explore
"This book presents a wide range of example scenarios that will ensure that you think in a logical manner and allow you to practise the stations, therefore reducing the anxiety when you perform under assessment. Each station contains instructions for the student, an extensive mark scheme and realistic directions for the patient so that your revision is as similar to the real exam as possible. Using this resource will guide your OSCE revision, enabling you to progress in skill and gain formative feedback. Questions at the end of each station test your knowledge or force you to think logically when giving a sensible suggestion if you're not quite sure! This book has been written and reviewed by doctors and students who know what medical schools like to examine on, therefore it is a focused, up-to-date and universally applicable resource for the clinical years of training."

Zeshan Qureshi is a Paediatrician based at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Child Health. He graduated with distinction from the university of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education. Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: that junior doctors and fresh graduates know how to express complex ideas in order for it to be easily understood from a students perspective. That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: one that is friendly and fun, easy to read and relevant to both exams, and the day to day to life of junior doctors.
