MCQs are a standard part of undergraduate and postgraduate examinations, providing an easy and unbiased way of assessing performance. This updated edition of 240 MCQ questions covers a wide range of topics in medical microbiology and infectious diseases. The questions are accompanied by extended answers making them suitable for both revision and self-study. The book should be particularly suited for candidates taking the MRCP, FRCS/MRCS and MRCOG examinations, and also for anyone wishing to test their knowledge in this rapidly changing subject.
