The dependence of conductivity of a layered conductor with the quasi-two-dimensional electron energy spectrum of an arbitrary form on an external magnetic field orientation is analyzed. It is shown that the oscillatory dependence of magnetoresistance of the conductor with a multisheeted Fermi surface (FS) on the angle of inclination of strong magnetic field to the layers-plane contains important information about the FS shape, in particular the magnitude of FS corrugation may be determined from oscillations period.
