Best book for studying Clinical Examination for MRCS part B

Before starting preparation for MRCS Part B, you should be clear about the
distribution of areas that will be tested in the exam. As per the latest 2016 guidelines, following is the distribution:

Anatomy and surgical pathology - 5 stations
Applied surgical science and critical care - 3 stations
Clinical and Procedural Skills - 6 stations
Communication skills (a. Giving and receiving information b.History Taking)  - 4 stations

So clinical and procedural skills forms one of the biggest part of the exam. One of the books which I liked a lot is "Focused Clinical Examination for MRCS Finals OSCE" (by Ms Jennifer Kean, Mr Chris Stephens, Ms Juliana M F Hughes, Mr Stuart Enoch). All the topics tested frequently have been meticulously covered in this book and can be used as a single point reference for studying all clinical examinations. Here is the Kindle link: http://amzn.to/2gztWju 

Below are the areas that are covered in this book:

  • Chapter 1: Abdomen 
  • Chapter 2: Back 
  • Chapter 3: Breast 
  • Chapter 4: Hand 
  • Chapter 5: Hip 
  • Chapter 6: Knee 
  • Chapter 7: Neck 
  • Chapter 8: Parotid 
  • Chapter 9: Peripheral Vascular System 1 – Lower Limb 
  • Chapter 10: Peripheral Vascular System 2 – Upper Limb 
  • Chapter 11: Shoulder 
  • Chapter 12: Superficial Lesions 
  • Chapter 13: Thyroid 
  • Chapter 14: Varicose Veins

Please do share your suggestions also if you know of other good books for studying clinical examination for MRCS part B.
