Essential Books
  • Short Essays, MCQs and OSCEs for MRCOG Part 2
    Justin Konje

    Designed to help the candidate in preparation for each paper of the MRCOG Part 2 examination, this title concentrates on testing theoretical and practical knowledge of obstetrics and gynaecology as recommended in the syllabus through questions covering aspects of medicine, surgery and paediatrics relevant to the practice of both. The volume opens with some general advice to candidates on examination preparation and how to tackle the different styles of question. The short essay section that follows includes 200 essay questions, grouped according to subject for ease of revision. For each essay, the candidate is provided with a list of common mistakes to avoid; the key points that the examiners will be looking for in the answer; and a full essay incorporating the key points described. The 300 multiple-choice questions forming the second section incorporate the variable stem / true-false style of the current exam. Short explanatory notes are included with the answers. The text concludes with a section of OSCEs mimicking the stations that the candidate will encounter during the three-hour examination. As recommended by the RCOG, the questions have been designed to test factual knowledge and understanding, problem solving skills, diagnosis, investigation, treatment, and communication and clinical skills.

  • Short Essay Questions for MRCOG Part 2
    M.A. Khaled, A.G. Ellis

    A collection of approximately 100 short essay questions in 10 papers with model answers for the new MRCOG part 2 examination. Also includes a chapter which explains the OSCE and how to prepare for it. The content is highly relevant for the part II exams. During the last few exams recently, many questions set were taken out from the book directly. The book is therefore a must for the MRCOG II exams. The content is highly relevant, and questions were drawn from a range of highly relevant topics in the specialty. The only disadvantage of this book is that it does not break down the award of the marks for the different points mentioned in the essay. The other short essay book in the market by Birmingham medical staff is slightly better with regards to this. Overall, it is a must for all trainees.

Semi essential Books
  • Mrcog II: Short Essay Questions
    Khaldoun Sharif, Parveen Abedin

    MRCOG Short Essay Questions is the essential aid for all trainees studying for the membership examination of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This book contains 150 short essay questions, clearly structured to facilitate both learning and practice. Questions are divided primarily into obstetrics and gynaecology and secondly by main topics such as infertility, operative gynaecology and antenatal care. The answers are written in the form of bullet points; a format that not only clearly identifies the key points but also emulates the structure of the model answers given to the examiners by the RCOG. Khaldoun Sharif is a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Birmingham Women's Hospital, and has a proven track record as an author of MRCOG revision books. His co-author, Parveen Abedin recently passed the examination and has therefore provided invaluable insights that have ensured the content is both appropriate and up-to-date.

  • MCQs and Short Answer Questions for MRCOG: An Aid to Revision and Self-assessment
    David Luesley, Philip Baker

    This is a companion volume to Obstetrics and Gynaecology and represents all the curricular elements covered in that text. This volume, consisting of MCQs and Short Essay Questions, is intended to be used in conjunction with, and independently of, the main text as a self-assessment aid throughout training and during revision for MRCOG examinations. Both the MRCOG Part 1 and Part 2 include MCQ papers and the MRCOG Part 2 includes a short essay question paper. Therefore, this volume will assist with revision for both papers.
