Books for MRCPsych CASC
Here are a selection of books I used in my CASC preparation. If you know of any other good books please email me.
I thought this was the best one:
OSCEs in Psychiatry: Prepare for the New MRCPsych - Albert Michael
Some of the physical/cognitive examinations are covered best in this one, which are not covered in above:
MRCPsych Part I: Passing the OSCE – Justin Sauer and Colin O’Gara
These two books are written specifically for the new CASC exam. I didn’t use them myself as they weren’t out when I was revising.
MRCPsych: passing the CASC Exam – Justin Sauer
How to Pass the MRCPsych CASC – Andrew Iles, Rose Woodall Flavia Leslie
This one is more about tactics and is out of date
OSCEs in psychiatry – Ranga Rao
I was emailed recently (Feb 2011) to say that this book is excellent
Pass the Casc for the MRCPsych by Seshni Moodliar
Are apparently almost identical. I used the part 1 book. It was okay, but have some sections that are actually verbatim the same to those in the Albert Michael book. Which came first?
