Overview

EMQs are a popular method of assessing how broad a knowledge of medicine and surgery an undergraduate has acquired. They can, however, be difficult to prepare for, and the best way to build understanding and confidence is with practice.

EMQs in Surgery is an invaluable revision book, presenting 100 key EMQs covering the core areas of surgery and associated specialties. The questions and answers are structured to reflect accurately the themes uncountered in exam conditions. Each topic is accompanied by a revision section, which summarises key points and cross-references them to other questions for revision purposes.

The second edition of EMQs in Surgery has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect surgical developments, while retaining the clear and comprehensive approach and popular revision boxes of its predecessor. The authors' firsthand experience of EMQ-based examinations, and awareness of the importance of reliable and accurate revision guides, ensure that EMQs in Surgery, alongside its popular companion, EMQs in Clinical Medicine, continues to be the perfect companion to finals preparation.
