Following the format change to include single best answer questions (SBAs), this book equips candidates with a full range of testing examples to develop familiarity with the format and prepare for success in their FRCS (Tr&Orth) examination. Containing over 1,000 level 2 SBA questions, detailed explanations ensure candidates understand the reasoning and evidence-based decision-making behind each answer. Covering the breadth of the orthopaedic syllabus, including more difficult subject areas such as biomechanics, prosthetics/orthotics, anatomy and statistics, this is a crucial resource for all candidates. Encouraging the integration of clinical information with problem solving, this question format helps candidates learn and retain the answers more efficiently than with simple factual recall. Written by highly experienced clinicians and examiners, these example questions are essential for preparing for the real examination.
