A well prepared student takes the initiative to create learning opportunities and propel themselves towards qualification; we find that the better prepared you are, the luckier you become. From the Preface The key to passing clinical finals is not a secret; adequate preparation and the ability to think logically and speak clearly are all hallmarks of a successful candidate. This unique guide gives final year students the knowledge and confidence required to pass their examinations with insiders' tips on particular information and skills required to be a top candidate. It is ideal as both a revision aid in the weeks leading up to the examination, and as an aide-memoire the night before.
