The books "Physics MCQs for the Part I FRCR" is a very good effort from the authors. In fact, it provides a straight way to prepare the physics. However, it will be valuable if the the authors list the MCQs in a typical style, like, question and then four to five options to pick one answer. The one, I thought, is like given below,
SY # : which of the followings is not the property of Tungsten filaments,
1: high melting point (3370C)
2: slow filament evaporation
3: no arcing
4: minimum deposit on tube glass envelope
5: no space charge effect
The above mentioned style provides good insight and confidence to the candidate. The present style, as book follow, in my opinion, seems more reading theory instead of tasting Multiple choice questions.
Any how, the over all book is a worth addition to read.
