MCQs for First FRCR offers the most comprehensive coverage of the topics covered in the new First Fellowship of Royal College of Radiology (FRCR) examination, which includes newly-added topics such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance.
Led by specialist trainees with recent exam experience and contributions from experienced senior consultants and examiners, this book offers not only relevant content and valuable insights, but also visually enhanced answer sections (including diagrams and tables) that aim to improve and enhance understanding of key concepts in medical physics and radiation protection.
Each chapter includes up to forty multiple choice questions covering each area of the exam. Each question and answer includes explanations and further reading.
`There are 3 recently published books covering the physics component of the First FRCR, which are updated to reflect the new curriculum. Out of all of them, I think this one is the best and most comprehensive. All in all, if you were to choose to invest in one book for the Physics module, I would definitely buy this one.'
This book most accurately reflects the level of the FRCR part 1 physics paper. I failed my first attempt at the exam, by preparing using an online service (which shall remain nameless) and some of the lesser MCQ books. My second attempt was successful, in no small part due to this book which, whilst very dry indeed, matches quite closely the actual exam questions in scope and difficulty. If you can get most of the questions in this correct, then you should be
fine for the exam.
