Critical appraisal books

We have written two of the most popular and well-regarded books on critical appraisal. The Doctor's Guide to Critical Appraisal is based on the content of the online and classroom critical appraisal courses. The chapters are in the same unique order and teach critical appraisal from first principles assuming no prior knowledge. Journal Club Presentations Made Easy is a smaller book focusing on practical tips for doctors preparing presentations.

Both books are published by PasTest - the leading provider of medical revision books.
