A new revision guide designed to help candidates prepare for the first part of the FRCS general surgery exam. Due to a lack of preparatory resources for the exam, this book bridges the gap, offering updated guidelines and information which will help candidates succeed. It acts as a supportive revision guide which will enrich other FRCS exam resources.
This resource provides an updated approach to the FRCS exam. Using questions written by practicing surgeons, the book offers more contemporary revision materials, touching on topics not widely covered in other FRCS revision aids. Readers will gain a familiarity with the style of the FRCS exam, as Higher FRCS uses a style reflective of the exam to enhance the candidate’s knowledge, confidence, and preparation.
The audience for this book includes general surgery trainees who are preparing for their higher exams (including FRCS), alongside surgical trainees taking the MRCS. It is also a beneficial resource for students in other medical courses studying for surgical exams.
