Description of MCQ Tutor for students of Microbiology

Multiple choice questions are now generally accepted as a valid and reliable method for objective assessment of knowledge and understanding after a period of instruction. Objective examinations are well suited to testing factual knowledge in scientific and technical subjects and have been widely applied as a supplement to the traditional essay paper in university, college and registration board examinations in microbiology. MCQ Tutor for students of Microbiology book comprises some 400 MCQ's with annotated answers, mainly in bacteriology but also including immunology, virology and parasitology, with the emphasis placed on clinical applications. It is intended primarily for medical students in the second and third undergraduate years as an aid to preparation for the third MB examination, but it should also prove useful to students of medical and laboratory sciences as well as candidates for diploma and college examinations. The book MCQ Tutor for students of Microbiology is designed not only to provide a ready means of self-assessment but also to give instruction in tutorial form, hopefully furnishing a starting point for further studies and discussion. It should be used in conjunction with lecture notes and a good textbook to identify particular areas of weakness while proceeding through a course of instruction.
The contents closely follow the conventional arrangement of most courses and have been divided into four parts for ease of reference. Part One is essentially introductory, covering the preclinical aspects of microbiology and host defence mechanisms. Part Two deals with microbial systematics; detailed properties of the various micro-organisms have been largely restricted to those active in the infection process or important in identification, in line with the current trend towards more clinically orientated
courses. Part Three has a strong clinical bias and is devoted to the nature and manifestation of a wide spectrum of infective diseases, plus their laboratory diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Part Four is a modest single chapter section which presents examples of a few of the other forms of MCQ that might be met.
