    April 2005 Part 1 & 2

    Part 1 was all basic sciences. As usual there were some dodgy questions, but overall it was a pretty straightforward paper. Just keep practicising MCQ's, especially the new set by Pastest.

    As far as EMQ's are concerned, alot were ambiguous. My only advice is read the question, then come up with an answer, and then look to see if that answer is in the list of options.

    I can only recall the questions listed below, just remember to do lots of MCQ's!!
