All the Techniques You Need
Based on the popular examination techniques course, the authors have produced a concise, practical and comprehensive book covering all aspects of the examinations. It encompasses recent changes in the structure and curricula of the Part I and II examinations. This book aims to provide candidates with the techniques needed to present their knowledge in a structured and professional way, in both the clinical and written examinations of the MRCPsych.Table of Contents
New to This Edition
- Takes account of changes in the exam, notably changes away from a traditional MCQ exam to a format using Individual Statements and Extended Matched Items (ISQ's and EMI's). The dropping of the Part 1 clinical is another very significant change to the examination, and the replacement of this by the OSCE (Objective structured clinical examination) exam means that two entirely new chapters have been provided.
- In addition, some changes have occurred to the Patient Management Problems - which are now more structured and have been reamed the structured objective examination. Although the techniques required are similar, the existing chapter addressing these has been updated.
- Tells the candidate how to organise him/herself and how to present knowledge effectively, both in the written and oral exams - other books concentrate on factual knowledge rather than technique
- Covers learning styles and revision strategies
- Gives advice on all parts of the examination - ISQ/EMI, critical review paper, essay technique, clinical assessment, patient management problems
