I guess most of candidates study mainly along with practice cases, but the cases run on 6th look same as 5th.
However, 6th indicates the sentences to ask question concretely and they are able to be copied: the Amount of copy should be limited.
Foreign candidate like me should appreciate them.
Definitely a very useful book.
Otherwise good in general, a lot of information in bulletpoints (section 2) which makes it a bit hard to read/ study, but it is good to look up information needed when practising cases.
Cases look good with the explanations, sometimes I don't agree with the diffetentials though (eg depression with unintentional weight loss, epigastrial discomfort- depression as 2nd dg etc).
