5 Stars: An amazing piece of work
This book is the only one of its kind for the new FRCR part 1. As such it is indispensable. As a bonus at the end it includes an excellent short guide to answering the written part of the exam. It gives a list of headings to use as templates for answering the critical reading and is an excellent place to start.
