Self-Assessment in Respiratory Medicine (out of print)

Self-Assessment in Respiratory Medicine is an invaluable tool for any practitioner wishing to test and improve their knowledge of adult respiratory medicine. The updated, second edition includes 261 multiple-choice questions covering the full breadth of the specialty, using clinical vignettes that test not only the readers' knowledge but their ability to apply that knowledge in daily practice.

The questions have been compiled and tested by the ERS adult HERMES examination committee specially for this book, making it the perfect revision aid for candidates for the European Diploma, as well as any specialists in respiratory medicine who wish to exercise and improve their skills.
