Single Best Answer MCQs in Anaesthesia: Volume I Clinical Anaesthesia
Introducing “Single Best Answer MCQs in Anaesthesia: Basic Sciences” by Cyprian Mendonca – an invaluable resource for anaesthesia and intensive care medicine trainees, designed to help them assess their clinical knowledge and skills in problem-solving, decision-making, and data interpretation.
The book comprises six sets of practice papers, each containing 30 single best answer questions covering topics such as pain, clinical anaesthesia, and intensive care. The questions are based on the recent changes introduced to the written part of the final FRCA examination, allowing trainees to demonstrate the application of their knowledge to clinical practice.
The best possible answer to a given clinical scenario is substantiated by a detailed explanation drawn from recent review articles and textbooks in clinical anaesthesia, providing a comprehensive understanding of the concept. The book is an invaluable educational resource for all anaesthetists, not only trainees, and an essential guide for candidates sitting postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.

The content is comprehensive, and the six sets of practice papers include questions with varying levels of complexity. The questions are challenging and similar in style to the questions in the final FRCA exam. This book provides an opportunity for anaesthesia trainees to assess their clinical knowledge and skills in problem-solving, data interpretation, and decision-making with its MCQ format.
I particularly appreciated that the author included a range of questions on pain management, a topic which is often not covered as thoroughly in other medical textbooks. The pain management questions cover different types, mechanism of action for drugs, and management strategies for various types of pain – providing valuable MCQ practice to prepare for the final FRCA examination.
Moreover, the book has been written with a touch of practicality to cater to the readers’ needs. The comprehensive nature of the questions helps the trainees understand the practical application of the concepts. The practice paper format with 30 questions in each set ensures that it is suitable for readers who would like to learn the concepts and get the maximum value from the book.
