Review of the Second Edition Dr Sherif Helmy is a physician with wide experience; he has applied his knowledge and skills to great effect in preparing this excellent book which will prove to be of immense value. It is topic-based, covering a wide range of subjects. The questions are all clinically relevant to day-to-day practice, and clearly formulated. Working carefully through this book should form an important part of the process of preparation for the exam and I am very happy to recommend it.
