Description

Single Best Answer (SBA) and Extended Matching Question (EMQ) examinations are increasingly popular means of testing medical students and those undertaking postgraduate qualifications in a number of subject areas. Written by a final year medical student, junior doctors and an experienced clinician, Single Best Answers and EMQs in Clinical Pathology provides invaluable guidance from authors who understand from personal experience that detailed and accurate explanations are the key to successful revision.

This book presents 200 SBA-style and 50 EMQ-style questions arranged by sub-specialty area as well as a practice exam of random questions. A clear discussion of how the correct answer was reached and other options ruled out for every question is given at the end of each section, making this book an excellent learning aid during all stages of undergraduate clinical studies and beyond into postgraduate training, and particularly while preparing for medical finals.
