Posted: Nov 11, 2018
Importance of knowing the obvious
The MCQ based exam that determines an individual’s expertise in relation to the regulations and standards of the Australian Medical Council encompasses an array of different topics that require thorough and in-depth knowledge and understanding. Furthermore, not only is it important for the individual to be academically sound before appearing for the exam but it is equally vital that that individual is familiar with the pattern of the MCQ exam which may seem simple in essence but may have different variations.
A more hands-on approach
While conventional texts and AMC exam preparation books may be considered an essential source of content that may help in the exam, it remains to be understood for the individuals appearing that the exam will instead be mostly based on clinical applications and practical diagnostic techniques that come with experience gained by a more hands-on approach. To gain an insight into these techniques, the council has compiled a list of AMC preparation books for reference
Important material for consultation
It remains to be seen that the books that have been identified to assist in the AMC preparation often cover topics in varying depths so it is down to the technical ability of the individual referring to them to absorb optimal amount of information required and needed at that point in time for that particular topic. Anthology of medical conditions is a good textbook that familiarizes doctors with the protocols of their practice in society. It shares details of the legal and ethical side of the practice and also lists at least 130 cases of clinical diagnostic practice as examples for assisting individuals that may seek its content.
Material endorsed by the council
Australian Medical Council does not only rely on textbooks but has also issued a series of different assisting material that is vital for AMC preparation. One of these hand books is a compilation of sample MCQs; The AMC handbook of multiple choice questions, to give the individuals reading it an idea about what sort of questions may be asked of them. It contains almost 600 multiple choice questions that have been collected from past exams to reflect the pattern of examination as per the standards of the council. Not only does it contain sample MCQs individually but also contains 120 complete past papers that the students can choose to solve themselves as practice.
Another handbook that serves as a vital method of AMC preparation is the handbook of clinical assessment. The AMC handbook of clinical assessment is a comprehensive guide containing clinical practices in Australia. It compiles clinical and diagnostic practices of different medicinal branches and variations to broaden the hands-on understanding of the field the individual reading them will inevitably embark on in their professional career. It is perhaps the most important and abundant source of information as it not only reflects vital information but also does so in a way that is compliant with the council and its standards. All of the reading practice materials are available on the AMC official website and other online stores that have the books in electronic and pdf format.
