SBA MCQs for the MRCS Part A (Oxford Specialty Training: Revision Texts) 01st Edition

by Sri G. Thrumurthy (Author), Tanja Samantha De Silva (Author), Zia Moinuddin (Author), Stuart Enoch (Author)

Specifically designed to help candidates revise for the MRCS exam, this book features 350 Single Best Answer multiple choice questions, covering the whole syllabus. Containing everything candidates need to pass the MRCS Part A SBA section of the exam, it 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.
