    i took the exam on 15th true mastery questions were tricky overall i won't rate it too difficult but few matery quetions were really nonsense if they mean to say mastery questions are important to check ur life saving critical knowledge i'll put 3 mastery questions as example

    who are least likely to commit suicide
    a. single
    b. married
    c. divorcee
    d. sepratee
    e. old age

    what will a 3 year child do
    a. dress without supervision
    b. hop on 1 leg
    c. climb the stairs
    d. draw a recognisable man

    who are more likely to have violent behaviour
    a. young man
    b. a criminal
    c. with history of violent behaviour
    d. homelessness

    well these were mastery questons and tension pneumothorax and DKA were not mastery questions bcoz they know that doctors will give right ans for them

    well i'll shortly post my recall with help of my other friends who have appeared on 15th only and i also request other readers to contribute to help the others. i have been greatly helped by this forum and it's time to payback :)
    those who are appearing in future exams do read these past papers but don't rely on ans try to find them urself and preferably those refrences given by amc
    last but not the least please pray for us all who have just appeared for the exam

  37. Guest

    Guest Guest

    well i can just tell u how i prepared for my exams and it worked for me but don't know if it would helpful to u. i prepared for exactly 1.5 months but i had a gud study partner who helped me out. what i wud suggest you is throughly go thru all the past papers and search for their ans. and not just ans but also find about the other 3-4 options which are given and study those topics bcoz what AMC normally does is they pretty much keep the question same and just change few words here and there and that wud make different ans so if u'll prepare the other options as topics u'll be better prepared.

    u try to solve the questions and put ur ans on web u'll get quite number of opinions here on this forum :)

    best of luck for ur exam.
