By using the multiple choice questions in this book, students - both undergraduates and postgraduates - can test their own progress in learning the principles and practice of surgery. Each question comprises a series of statements, each of them posing a question - is it true or false?
This book assists the undergraduate medical student and postgraduate in surgery to build up knowledge of the principles and practice of surgery by the process of asking questions. This serves as practice for MCQ format examinations and as a basis for revision in combination with textbooks such as "Bailey & Love's Short Practice of Surgery". The book is based on "Bailey & Love" and its author was the senior editor for 25 years. The third edition reflects the revisions in the new 21st edition of "Bailey & Love". It contains a complete revision of questions and introduces over 250 new questions. Part 1 provides introductory exercises; part 2 uses standard MCQs following the arrangement of chapters in "Bailey & Love"; part 3 presents MCQs at random or in runs, as in examinations. This book should be of interest to clinical period undergraduate medical students; and postgraduate surgical trainees.
