Written by experts in the field, it is carefully mapped to the RCOphth curriculum, providing comprehensive preparation for all aspects of this challenging exam.

A mock examination of 90 questions enables trainees to assess their level of knowledge, and practise the technique and approach needed for the examination.

All answers are accompanied by detailed explanations and relevant further reading sources, providing candidates with high-quality self-assessment. Offering a true test of the reader's opthalmology knowledge, this is a must-buy for anyone preparing for the FRCOphth part 2 written exam.
