FRCR 2A Questions 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!

FRCR 2B Written by Radiology Trainee

FRCR 2B – Written by Dr Maria McGill – ST5 Radiology Trainee, The SRT Northern Ireland Representative No textbook can replace 2B viva practice with consultants, however there are some textbooks my colleagues and myself found very helpful. The list is not comprehensive and there is absolutely no need to buy all the textbooks below. 2B textbooks are not cheap – I bought them from my senior colleagues at ‘mates rates’. There will also be second hand books online. Ask junior consultant colleagues who may have some of these textbooks gathering dust on an office shelf! Also if you have other colleagues who are sitting the exam at the same time, set up a ‘book swap’ where you lend each other textbooks you have bought. FRCR 2B ESSENTIALS:
