Postgraduates studying dermatology can face a frustrating lack of appropriate revision aids: reference books are often too exhaustive or out-of-date, while undergraduate and introductory texts lack the necessary detail and depth. This book is specifically designed for postgraduate examinations, in particular the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Specialist Certificate Examination in dermatology, but also the MRCP, MRCGP, MRCPCH, RCPATH diploma in dermatopathology and the GP/CMT kwledge test. For general practitioners the book is the perfect accompaniment for the diploma in dermatology. Providing much more than a 'cheat sheet' of questions and answers, its chapters are designed to be studied in sequence, each building on the last to develop a strong overall understanding. Lists, tables and summaries help candidates to target their revision to commonly examined areas, while MCQs (multiple choice questions) following the widespread 'best of five' format allow candidates to test their kwledge. 'It is my hope that reading this book will save postgraduates from making their own tes and allow them more time to concentrate on what is truly important - looking after patients.' - James Halpern in his Preface 'There is a lot to learn in Dermatology. Browsing through [this book] will help you understand the standards expected.Working through the examples will focus the mind and expose your weak spots.' - from the Foreword by Celia Moss.
