This work features a Foreword by David Taylor, Vice Dean, Leicester Medical School. "This book is the first to assist students with a new format of testing knowledge and clinical skills, i.e., the extended matching question. I am delighted my colleagues here in Leicester, where undergraduate education is given the very highest priority, have found the time and energy to write this book. This book comprehensively tests a whole range of obstetrics and gynaecology and I congratulate them for it." - David Taylor, in the Foreword. This revision aid in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is based on the Extended Matching Question format (EMQ). It contains over 200 patient vignettes arranged in topic areas covering a broad range of themes and degrees of difficulty. It provides test EMQs and detailed answers at the completion of each section. "EMQs in Obstetrics and Gynaecology" is an indispensable study and revision aid for undergraduate medical students preparing for in-course assessment in obstetrics and gynaecology as well as final exams. It also provides a vital review for specialist trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology preparing to take postgraduate exams.
"'Extended Matching Questions are increasingly being adopted as a format of written assessment, both in the undergraduate and postgraduate setting. EMQ's have considerable advantages over formats such as MCQ's and True/False questions, in that they test the application of knowledge and problem solving in a clinical context rather than simple factual recall; EMQ's appear to do so reliably, and there is less cueing and reliance on elimination of obviously incorrect answers. Consequently, it is likely that EMQ's will replace many of the older written assessment formats.' Andrea Akkad, Marwan Habiba and Justin Konge, in the Preface"
