An invaluable prep guide for the Final FRCA exam, as well as a useful ready reference throughout anaesthetic training
This guide introduces methods and systems of answering the Final FRCA exam's SAQs (Short Answer Questions) succinctly and accurately. Almost all of the questions have been asked in the final FRCA since 1996 and most chapters carry more detail than required to reach a pass standard. The FRCA is required for trainee anesthetists in the UK.
This edition takes a question-orientated approach and provides guidance for the final exam. Given the short time allowed for answering the SAQs, previous practice, prior to sitting the examination, is essential. Each of the twelve sections has a comprehensive set of multiple choice questions (MCQ) to the same standard as those set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. It is vital that candidates practice MCQs as well as SAQs, and the ninety multiple choice questions that follow the SAQ paper carry just as much weight as the SAQ paper. The book has been structured as topic based sections and chapters, each of which can be followed and used to enable self-testing.
