This book was compiled for Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeons preparing to sit the FRCS examination. It provides a recommended framework which will allow you to start embarking on your revision. It provides a review of the resources available and how to best utilise your time to tackle the different components of the exam. All too often I have found candidates in the dark about techniques until it’s too late. A read of this book prior to embarking on revision will help the candidate plan ahead.


The book is divided into two sections; the first is my experience of how to prepare for the part A and B and the second section contains important exam material.

I have chosen to distribute this book through the Orthopaedic Network. They are a not for profit organisation involved in the collaboration and education of Orthopaedic surgeons. If you have found this book helpful, I would humbly request that you donate towards charities supported by them to further the work they do to support those in need. Thank you and all the best.
