Specifically designed to help candidates revise for the MRCS exam, this two-volume pack features 350 Single Best Answer multiple choice questions, and 250 Extended Matching Questions, divided into 96 themes, covering the whole syllabus. Containing everything candidates need to pass the MRCS Part A, the pack focuses intensively on the application of basic sciences (applied surgical anatomy, physiology, and pathology) to the management of surgical patients.
The high level of detail included within the questions and their explanations allows effective self-assessment of knowledge and quick identification of key areas requiring further attention. Varying approaches to Single Best Answer multiple choice questions are used, giving effective exam practice and guidance through revision and exam technique. This includes clinical case questions, positively-worded questions, requiring selection of the most appropriate of relatively correct answers; ‘two-step’ or ‘double-jump’ questions, requiring several cognitive steps to arrive at the correct answer; as well as factual recall questions, prompting basic recall of facts.
