This book provides those studying for the MRCOG Part 2 examination with welcome practice in answering the newly introduced EMQ style of question. Modelled on the current MRCOG syllabus, the book is designed to test the candidate's theoretical and practical knowledge of obstetrics and gynaecology.
The book opens with an introductory section, explaining the EMQ and its place in the examination, and advising candidates on how they should approach this question type to obtain the highest marks. This is followed by a collection of 71 EMQ themes, with a total of 291 questions for the reader to attempt. The questions are based on common clinical scenarios and cover a variety of topics. Answers are included after each topic, and these include explanatory material and useful references.
With a concentration on the core areas of the syllabus and a wide and varied selection of practice EMQs, this book will be an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of all candidates in preparation for the MRCOG Part 2.

"this is a 'must-buy' for the trainee preparing for MRCOG Part 2. I would also thoroughly recommend this book for more junior trainees, who could use it as a quick educational tool for common obstetric and gynaecological topics. It is also a great addition to the consultant's bookshelf, providing trainers with up-to-date examples of current membership-style questions."
