How often have you put off studying because you've had a long, tiring work shift, or you feel guilty at not spending enough time with your family? For many doctors, finding a study and testing program they can stick to is an almost impossible task. Most regimes ask too much, too often, and are invariably too hard.

ACE YOUR MEDICAL EXAMS doesn't ask you to do the impossible. It introduces you to the psychological strategies and techniques designed to cultivate peak performance and personal growth. What good performers in any field have in common is an ability to quickly move past the negative emotion of a failure and learn from the experience.

The book bridges the gap between research and practice by clearly illustrating essential concepts with case studies, anecdotes, and examples. Designed as an easy, do-it-yourself manual, the book includes action plans at the end of most chapters. There are questionnaires for you to fill in and reflect on. You'll discover how appropriate body language and voice tone can improve your self-confidence and communication, as well as the perceptions of others around you. You will learn how to use your brain at optimal times to foster quality study and nurture resilience, and most chapters have creative suggestions for testing yourself on specific oral or written exam components. All the information is here; the how and why of procrastination, the benefits or otherwise of study groups, motivation (or the lack of it!) and a myriad of study suggestions. Just choose and adapt the ideas to fit your lifestyle.

ACE YOUR MEDICAL EXAMS helps you choose a personal study and testing program that, while no-one ever said it was easy, isn't intimidating
Industry Reviews

Doctors like logic and science. This is a study plan which is logical and scientific, clear, concise, and unbelievably helpful. Dr. Charles Ovadia, FRACGP College Examiner.

I will be strongly recommending this book to all medical specialty trainees and medical students. Dr. Frank Piscioneri, Supervisor of General Surgical Training, The Canberra Hospital, ACT.

I approached the exam with confidence rather than trepidation. I wish I'd been taught how to study for exams in medical school. Dr. Joanna Longley, Hervey Bay Hospital, Qld.

This book contains practical advice and tips on how to study smarter, not harder, with tried and tested study plans. It is an invaluable resource for both trainees and their supervisors. Dr. Mary Pinder, Chair, Assessments Committee, CICM

Patsy, you have the ability to not only show us a way to successfully passing these exams, you turned the whole journey into something fun: instead of feeling guilty every day, I did less studying but enjoyed it AND had time for myself - and passed the exams easily. Dr. med Nina Kloth, FANZCA, Kilchberg, Switzerland
I only wish I had known Patsy when I was training for my own specialist examinations. I will be putting this book straight onto the "must read" list for all our future specialist trainees! Dr. Bronwyn Avard, CICM College Examiner

I was absolutely delighted when Associate Professor Tremayne told me that she was writing a book to distil all her experience and knowledge in helping doctors and senior medical students pass their examinations. I commend it to the reader, and I fully expect it to take its place on the bookshelves of countless registrars and students, and the consultants responsible for their training and examination. Professor John Watson, AM, FRACP College Examiner

I have, over the years, seen the fruits of Dr Tremayne's techniques through a number of younger colleagues who have benefitted from her sessions and time. I, and all of us involved in mentoring young doctors, thoroughly endorse this formalisation of her skills and approaches in this book. Professor Mohamed Khadra, Professor of Surgery
