"MCQs, SAQs, EMQs and OSCEs for Oral Pathology and Oral Medicine-An exam-focused Approach" is designed to serve as a companion to the available textbooks in oral pathology and oral medicine and is meant to serve as a revision tool for dental students and graduates preparing for examinations.
The book is structured to complement student lecture notes, recommended textbooks and past exam papers.
Globally, the current trend is to use a combination of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), short answer questions (SAQs), extended matching questions (EMQs) and objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) stations in the examination process.
Available textbooks in oral pathology and oral medicine are not of much value to students preparing for exams using these assessment formats.
The aim of this book therefore is to offer students with a single source that would assist them to prepare for exams.
Target audience for this book includes dental students, oral health therapy and dental hygiene students, overseas-trained dental graduates preparing for board or licensing examinations and those preparing for membership or fellowship examinations of the Royal Surgical Colleges.
