FRCR 2A Question Books

The FRCR 2A exam is a tough exam and the earlier you start to prepare for it the better. The exam style has changed this year from the 6-module exam to one big exam encompassing all 6 modules in December of ST3. We find the best way to revise for these exams is to invest in a good Diagnostic Imaging textbook – The SRT recommends Diagnostic Radiology 6th edition by Grainger & Allison 2 volume set, however there are a few textbooks such as Primer, Brant & Helms and Dahnert that you may also find useful. Another important aid to your revision is to read Journal articles, particularly from Clinical Radiology as the questions will be based on some of these articles. Radiographics, Radiology and the British Journal of Radiology also have great review articles on every topic imaginable!
