Cambridge Medicine has launched a dynamic new self-testing website for trainee anaesthetists – www.FRCAQ.com
What is FRCAQ.com?
It is an online revision resource of over 1,450 questions, answers and explanations in anaesthesia for trainees preparing for the Primary FRCA MCQ exam. Four different test options give you the flexibility to tailor your exam preparation to your specific needs, and detailed reports allow you to monitor your performance over time and against your peers.
Tell me more…
The site contains questions in both SBA (Single Best Answer) and MTF (Multiple True False) format. The Editors have analysed very component of the Primary FCRA syllabus and written questions on every topic you will encounter in the exam. Each question contains a short and long explanation, giving extensive background information to enhance your anaesthetic knowledge.
Which countries is the site relevant for?
Due to similarities in exam content and structure, the questions and answers on FRCAQ.com are directly applicable to the Irish Primary FCARSCI exam, the European Diploma in Anesthesia, the Australian and NZ FANZCA Part 1 exam, the Hong Kong HKCA Intermediate exam and the South African FCA(SA) Part 1 exam. Trainees preparing for these exams will find the site an invaluable revision resource.
Who are the Editors?
The FRCAQ editors, James Nickells and Ben Walton, are not only highly experienced anaesthetists and intensivists, but also expert medical educators who run the highly regarded Frenchay Final FRCA Crammer course. Members of their writing team are recent successful Primary and Final FRCA candidates or recently appointed consultants, so FCRAQ.com is written by anaesthetists for anaesthetists!
