Containing everything candidates need to pass the MRCS Part A SBA section of the exam, it focuses intensively on the application of basic sciences (applied surgical anatomy, physiology, and pathology) to the management of surgical patients.

The high level of detail included within the questions and their explanations allows effective self-assessment of knowledge and quick identification of key areas requiring further attention. Varying approaches to Single Best Answer multiple choice questions are used, giving effective exam practice and guidance through revision and exam technique. This includes clinical case questions, ‘positively-worded’ questions, requiring selection of the most appropriate of relatively correct answers; ‘two-step’ or ‘double-jump’ questions, requiring several cognitive steps to arrive at the correct answer; as well as ‘factual recall’ questions, prompting basic recall of facts.

  • Questions and explanatory revision notes are combined into one volume
  • Contains a substantial number of patient-based questions, which enable candidates to test their ability to integrate key basic science concepts with relevant clinical problems
