FRCOphth Part 1: 400 SBAs and CRQs

by H Nikki Hall, Robert G Peden

The subject matter contained in the modern FRCOphth Part 1 exam covers almost the entire syllabus, making it vital to ensure that revision covers the full breadth of the subject. By using this book to prepare for their exam, candidates will equip themselves with the knowledge and techniques necessary to pass. The examination comprises 120 single best answer questions (SBAs), which are in best-of-four multiple choice format, followed by 12 CRQs. The latter are multi-part short answer questions, typically working around a ray diagram, photo or clinical investigation. CRQs constitute half of the examination marks, so practice is essential in order to achieve a pass mark. The question layout in each chapter mimics the structure of the exam, with SBAs followed by CRQs. The questions are grouped by subject in the first two chapters to facilitate focused study, whereas the final chapter is unstructured. You may wish to use this as a complete mock exam. The questions presented here are deliberately skewed to the most challenging end of the spectrum. By tackling conceptually difficult topics that could and do appear in the exam, we hope that the actual exam will feel a lot more achievable. The feedback section, with its clear explanations, key diagrams and tables, will ensure you learn something worthwhile and make efficient use of your study time. This book also recommends background reading from the publications listed in the bibliography. This book has broad coverage of the FRCOphth Part 1 exam syllabus in one portable volume.
