GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING FOR THE EXAMINATION

The bibliography of general practice/family practice is so extensive that it is not possible to give a complete recommended reading list. You should ensure that your knowledge of contemporary general practice/family practice is kept up to date by reading relevant books and textbooks, together with current mainstream medical journals. However as an indication, candidates should certainly refer to:
