About the Book

You have read your textbook and your course notes, now you need to test your knowledge and practise your exam technique. Complete Self Assessment for Medical and Surgical Finals is the ideal tool, examining all the core information medical students must know by the end of their final year via the most popular question formats.

This new edition has been expanded to include 650 single best answers, 180 extended matching questions and over 50 x-ray interpretation questions. The book is structured into two main parts covering both medicine and surgery and chapters are logically separated by all the main specialties, with new chapters on obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry. The answer explanations help you commit the key facts to memory while the attractive colour layout makes this book a refreshing change from other self-assessment titles.

This book also complements Complete Revision Notes for Medical Finals, covering the same key facts so that the two books work together to ensure students are fully prepared.

If you know what is in this book then you will know enough to pass your finals.
