I found that the course does more than just prepare me for the exam. It provides very practical tips from experienced experts in communicating to my patients in a variety of day to day situations and also challenging situations.
The lectures were extremely insightful and the mock examination helped tremendously with my confidence to face the simulated patients on the actual examination day.
