SAQs in Anatomy

by VG Sawant

In this book, the third edition, about 130 new SAQs, especially in Brain and Genetics Section have been added. Short answer questions (SAQs) are objective type of questions which require answer in words or in shorter manner. SAQs are useful in measuring learning outcomes in the lower and middle level cognitive domains, i.e. knowledge comprehension, application and analysis. Therefore, in a medical curriculum, where a student is required to be well aware of facts of life, disease and treatment, the SAQs can become a helpful tool to test their learning outcome. The SAQs are asked in theory examination for 2 marks. So, the answers should be written in shortest manner (in some of the clinically-oriented SAQs, answers are little lengthy for understanding purpose, but students can write in shortest manner). The SAQs included in this book, besides being asked in theory examination, are also most frequently asked in viva voce during practicals. In addition, answers to these SAQs will also help the students to answer MCQs on the same topic. Though this book is essentially for undergraduate students, it can be useful for the students preparing for postgraduate entrance examination.
