Single Best Answers and EMQs in Clinical Pathology PDF download

There has been a transition in the method used by medical schools to test the knowledge base and clinical acumen of medical students with the adoption of extending matching questions (EMQs) and more recently the single best answers (SBAs) question format. EMQs and SBAs overcome the ambiguity that occurs in multiple choice question (MCQ) exams as well as being able to provide more clinical question stems reflecting real life situations. The SBA format is highly favoured in examinations at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels since students must not only demonstrate their clinical knowledge and understanding but also make sound judgments that are more congruent with clinical practice. Although there are multiple sources for clinical medicine, there is a shortfall in the resources available for explaining the pathology behind all clinical diseases and processes. Single Best Answers and EMQs in Clinical Pathology provides a comprehensive and unique examination of the medical undergraduate curriculum and focuses on the pathology and science behind clinical diseases. Each question not only provides an opportunity to apply clinical knowledge and correctly identify the single best answer to a question but also to learn why the other answers are wrong, greatly increasing the reader’s learning opportunity. This book aims to provide medical students with a useful source for exam revision as well as supplementing their knowledge such that they may enter their clinical years with a sound scientific basis.
