Comments from Previous Candidates

Really really good, did other much more well known courses and this blew them away. Really intense viva practice, spaced with a few really useful little sessions, super friendly helpful faculty. Kind of wish I was a deveon trainee! Totally reccomended. Is probably what made the difference - I passed!

A fantastically well organised 2 day course with consultant lead vivas, several whole exams (long cases and vivas) and useful tutorials. Tiring but great practice. Made me feel more comfortable in verbalising my answers before the big day.

Very well run and friendly Course faculty. Excellent vivas exactly like the exam (Consultant & SR led), harder than the real day, immediate feedback and advice. Exam day in suits and smarts was a nice touch. Perfectly timed in the final week prior to exams, allowing a burst of intense practice when likely to be flagging and most of the hard work is done. Good lectures esp on 'Key Papers'. Great course which covers masses without even noticing it. A 'must attend course' before the vivas, a great help in passing the FRCA. The after course beers (on the faculty) help too.

I thoroughly enjoyed the DAFT course. It was really well done and gave me the practice and confidence I was lacking.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everybody's efforts with the DAFT course. It was the best course I have been on for a revision point of view by miles.

Thanks for all your help on the DAFT course, it really helped.
