Overview

This set of model MCQs in anatomy, physiology, pathology (including haematology, immunology and microbiology) and surgery in general, includes full explanatory answers and is based on the experience of several examiners. At this level good exam technique is almost as important as a sound knowledge of the field, making this self-test book an invaluable learning aid to candidates for postgraduate surgical examinations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Aronoff, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This British test review intends to assess a potential licensing candidate's knowledge of the basic sciences, using multiple choice format questions, both single best answer and determinant types.
Purpose: The purpose is to quantify the reader's (residents) knowledge in the areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathology to self-assess a candidate's aptitude in preparation for licensing examinations.
Audience: The target audience is mid to upper level residents in preparation for general surgery licensing. However, the physiology section in particular is better suited to the late medical school level. In addition, the difficulty of the questions varies, because each section is authored independently.
Features: This review contains only a few illustrations, all black-and-white. The radiography reproductions are very useful and interpretable. The book does offer occasional hints of necessary knowledge for the licensing exams. Opposite-page answers offer a convenient means of eyeing correct responses. The descriptions of potential responses is cryptic but helpful.
Assessment: This pocket-sized review book is a cursory preparation and self-assessment for basic science related questions on licensing exams. The questions are in an English/Scottish format, not identical to the American format. Also, the sections are not adequately weighted by organ systems.
