Plastic Surgery Exam Questions & Answers

Encouraged by the outstanding success of the first edition (2009) and the excellent feedback the book received from the users, the authors have brought out the newer edition of this popular book. In addition to new questions that cover the breadth of plastic surgery and burns in a clear, succinct and easy-to-read format, the highlights of this edition include the introduction of a new section on Ethics, Consent and Statistics relevant to the speciality. The questions are divided into topics and cover the entire syllabus of plastic surgery with specific focus on the FRCS(Plast) exam. Each question is followed by a correct answer and an informative but succinct explanation. With 500 questions, both in SBA and EMI/EMQ formats, this book is intended to be a valuable companion for those preparing for the examination in the United Kingdom as well as those taking similar examinations elsewhere in the world (for junior plastic surgeons appearing for the American Board exams, EBOPRAS, RACS (Australia) and MCh (India) ). Since first published in 2009, a number of plastic surgical trainees in both the UK and beyond have used this book in their exam preparation and have found it immensely beneficial.

" This book should have a special place in the library of anyone preparing for the FRCS(Plast) exam! I found this to be the only book that closely simulates the level of the exam and other similar Board Certification Examinations in Plastic Surgery. The questions are relevant, accurate, well-structured and educational with detailed explanations provided. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone gearing up towards the FRCS(Plast) or similar Board Certification Examinations in Plastic Surgery."

"An excellent guide to the exit exam. It comprehensively covers all the major topics in the syllabus and stimulates the reader to brush up on hitherto unread topics! Some users may attempt the questions only in the run up to the exam to test their level of preparedness, whilst others, such as I, have used it as a template to cover the length and breadth of the syllabus. I strongly recommend this book to any plastic surgical trainee appearing for the speciality exam."
