The DRCOG Revision Guide has been written by examiners as a must-have guide for anyone preparing for this examination. The format is closely aligned to the DRCOG syllabus with a chapter covering each one of the seven syllabus sections. The specimen questions can be used to check existing knowledge and ascertain where to concentrate your revision efforts. The guide contains 350 example questions that accurately represent each of the three question types that are featured in the examination. The answers sections contain detailed explanations and some insights from the examiners to help with exam technique. Suggested reading material and references to the sources of information used to set the questions are given throughout. The book ends with a complete mock examination to help you to practise time management and test your overall understanding. If you are preparing to sit the DRCOG examination, this is an essential guide for exam success.
