    some suggestion for MRCS 1,2

    MRCS 1:
    What Invincible JS said is all true. I will add only the foll: Pasttest Practice papers1,2,3,4 are almost like real exam papers-- so go through it and know what to expect. Study hypo and hyper of Ca, pot,phos , etc . Blood gas interpretations apart from other things. Anatomy from Snell is a must -- mostly the relations of structures and applied part. Thats it, and answer fast without thinking much -- you have good chance to pass.

    MRCS 2:
    Do as many EMQS as possible , from any source. This is to gain speed in answering. Concentrated on clinical features and investigations of all diseases from Pasttest revision notes if possible or/and Go through Raferty Pocket book of Surgery ( Churchil) and KIrk RCS . Lastly, Emqs of Huang Winslet and Chatrath Rahim are almost like real exam papers-- so go through it and know what to expect. Thats it, and answer fast without thinking much -- you have good chance to pass.

    I hope , these few tit-bits will help aspiring candidates . And with some luck and blessings you should pass. Best of luck
