Format: Paperback, 560 pages, 2nd Revised edition Edition
Published In: United Kingdom, 01 March 2009
Concise Paediatrics, Second Edition is essential reading for all postgraduates training in paediatrics, particularly when preparing for the MRCPCH exam, and for general practice trainees preparing for the DCH exam. As a comprehensive but concise reference to any condition they are likely to encounter on the wards or in the accident and emergency room, it will also be invaluable to doctors in other medical specialties who come into contact with children on a regular basis. The book is designed to provide readers with a full understanding of all of the areas covered by the MRCPCH. It is structured logically by body system, with additional chapters on such topics as genetics, infectious disease, neonatology and emergencies. Edited by two highly experienced paediatricians-their knowledge complemented by a group of specialist contributors-it is written in a succinct, user-friendly style and includes lists, boxes and annotated diagrams to aid learning and retention of the facts. Since the first edition was published in 2000, Concise Paediatrics has established itself as the textbook of choice for MRCPCH candidates, and will remain a "must-have" with this revised and updated second edition.

Written in a succinct, user-friendly manner and covers the main components of the syllabus. As a revision guide this works very well... This book is well worth the investment and would definitely recommend it to colleagues preparing for their membership exams. British Journal of Hospital Medicine, October 2009 5 Stars: Readable and concise - a valuable tool for exam preparation! I like this book - it is easy to read, contains most key points for the exams and is not too heavy to carry around! There are other books which also cover similar material and perhaps have more photos/pictures, but I find that in particular, this book is good for getting information across quickly and in an organised manner. The topics are arranged in the format of exam revision headings, and within each topic, clear headings, subheadings and bullet points make memorising for exams so much less taxing! I would definitely recommend this useful tool as a textbook to read when preparing for stressful exams e.g. MRCPCH 1. Amazon customer review of first edition
