About the Book

Individual Statement Questions (ISQs) are a relatively recent introduction to the MRCPsych examination. Although similar in some respects to Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), they differ significantly in their structure and answering technique. ISQs attempt to test more precise and in-depth knowledge and to succeed, practice is essential. Surprisingly, and much to the dismay of candidates preparing for MRCPsych Part II examination, to our knowledge, there are no revision guides currently available to help them in their preparation for Basic Sciences ISQs.


This unique, user-friendly collection of 1001 ISQs (with answers and explanations) will immensely benefit candidates with their comprehensive exam preparation. This book also provides good coverage of the various basic sciences topics prescribed in the part II curriculum on which candidates can test their knowledge and further consolidate their preparation for MRCPsych part II examination. Besides trainees, this book will also potentially benefit trainers and teachers who run examination revision courses as a useful reference guide.
