Get ahead MEDICINE 150 EMQs for finals 2nd Edition PDF



Get ahead MEDICINE 150 EMQs for finals 2nd Edition PDFExtended matching questions (EMQs) are becoming more popular as a method ofassessment in summative medical school examinations. EMQs have the advantageof testing candidates’ knowledge of clinical scenarios rather than their ability atdetailed factual recall. However, they do not always parallel real-life situations and are no comparison to clinical decision making, although examiners are trying to minimize the disparity by providing greater clinical detail for each case/question. In any case, the EMQ is here to stay.

Get ahead MEDICINE 150 EMQs for finals 2nd Edition PDF The Get ahead! series is aimed primarily at undergraduate finalists. Much like the real exam, we have endeavoured to include commonly asked questions as well as a generous proportion of harder stems appropriate for the more ambitious student aiming for the higher deciles. The Medical Schools Council Assessment Alliance (MSCAA) is a collaboration of medical schools in the UK that maintains a shared bank of EMQs and other question formats to be used in summative examinations. The questions in the Get ahead! series are written to follow the
‘house style’ of the MSCAA EMQs, and hence are of a similar format to what many of you can expect in your exams.

All the questions in the Get ahead! series are accompanied by explanatory answers, including a succinct summary of the key features of each condition. Even when you get an answer right, we strongly suggest that you read these summaries – we guarantee that you’ll learn something. For added interest, we have included some details of eponymous conditions (‘eponymous’ from Greek epi = upon + onyma = name; ‘giving name’), and, as you have just seen, some derivations of words from the original Latin or Greek.

If your exam is only two weeks away then CRAM, CRAM, CRAM– you’ll be surprised at how much you can learn in a fortnight.
