The extended-matching question (EMQ) is now a widely adopted format for the assessment of medical students. Each question addresses a theme that may be a symptom, sign, investigation, diagnosis or a management decision, and the stems are clinical vignettes relevant to clerkship and application of knowledge to clinical practice. With each question there is an option list from which the reader chooses the most likely or the correct answer.
The Second Edition of this book has been expanded to include a total of 200 EMQs, giving readers a foretaste of what they will encounter in their examinations. The questions cover a wide range of clinical themes across all the major branches of the medical curriculum.
