The advent of Modernising Medical Careers (MMC), the Post Graduate Medical Education and Training Board [PMETB), and possibly other bodies yet to come will keep the format of the MRCPsych in a state of evolution for the foreseeable future. Preparing for changing exams formats poses an added challenge for candidates. Two things make this challenge less formidable that it may seem at first. Firstly, though the format of the exam may change, the core knowledge that it tests will not. Secondly, reformatting exams from scratch is an extremely time consuming process and therefore future exams are likely to be based on previous exam questions. At the current time, ISO are still intended to be part of the exam format.In this book the authors have picked over 1500 questions which are at the heart of each topic in the syllabus. To save time, the book is organised into manageable chapters of 25 questions, each of which can be answered in 15 minutes. Each chapter covers one speciality only which will enable readers to access their knowledge in each area separately and hence identify their weak and strong areas. This book provides a useful revision and teaching aid well beyond simple question and answering. It is likely to stand the reader in good stead in future examinations whatever the format.
