"Essential Revision Notes for Intercollegiate MRCS" is the new definitive guide from PasTest for candidates preparing for the intercollegiate MRCS exam. Taken together, the two books offer a truly comprehensive revision guide. This substantial innovative volume has been written by surgical trainees for surgical trainees. An experienced and highly relevant list of contributors has been drawn upon to present specialist knowledge to the reader. Developed to make learning easier, boxes are used throughout the text to give a clear, succinct breakdown of essential knowledge. Unlike conventional textbooks, the essential facts in each subject area are presented in note form with special attention given to areas that are often poorly understood. Along with its companion volume, this book covers every major subject in the intercollegiate MRCS syllabus. It works systematically through every general surgical topic likely to come up in the exam. It highlights the important principles of surgery 'in a nutshell' and then explains them in appropriate detail. It emphasises and reviews the applied basic sciences of pathology, physiology and anatomy in each relevant section.
It contains standardised, easy to learn 'operation boxes' and 'procedure boxes' for all the common cases you should know for the MCQ/EMQ papers and the Operative Surgery viva. It has expanded sections on paediatric oncology, clinical governance, audit, statistics, consent, and research (in Book 1) and on elective neurosurgery, endocrine surgery and cardiothoracics (in Book 2). It is designed to work alongside the Royal College of Surgeons of England STEP course workbooks. It is written in the easy, informal 'revision-note' style, with the punchy bullet point format that made the original books so popular. It also highlights important lists to learn and vital points to remember. It is clearly laid out with line drawings to aid understanding. Also available: "Essential Revision Notes for Intercollegiate MRCS Book 2" (ISBN 9781904627371).show more
