When I was preparing for my final MBBS examinations in 1981, I was faced with the enormous challenge of reading through thick medical textbooks, end to end. I did so; but that was when I discovered that there is also much learning to be obtained from studying the different subjects through multiple choice questions (MCQs), happily, a few books of which were available in my college library.

It gives me much pleasure to write the foreword to this book which comprises a multi author compilation of quiz questions in psychiatry. I am sure that this book will help students of psychiatry to revise what they have learnt and to prepare for their examinations, including oral examinations. It would give quiz masters a resource for questions to pose to eager candidates. It would give students an opportunity to prepare for quizzes. And I imagine that examiners would find it easier, using this book, to find ideas for questions for postgraduate students.

This book is a worthy successor to the previous book, the IPSKC MCQ’s in Psychiatry: 1000+ which was published in 2017. My congratulations to the authors.

The role of a Teacher is not only to teach, but also to assess how much the student has learnt. A good Teacher is one who makes the students learn and assesses the students with different tools. This small booklet on MCQs in Psychiatry written by Dr. Anil Kakunje and friends is not only a compendium on questions set by the authors but also a ready- reckoner in the subject. The exhaustive coverage includes questions of varying types, varying difficulty levels and also varying degrees of interest. A difficult subject like Psychiatry is made to look so easy that even a novice in Psychiatry will start liking the subject and the way it is assessed. short answer questions make the subject easy and enjoyable.

The authors have toiled much in making the manuscript look modern and current and they have included best of 4 response MCQs, True or False, Fill in the blanks, Match the tables etc. These are all the ways of improving the students’ ability to grasp the subject as well. A few more items like K type MCQs, Multiple True or False etc could be included in the next edition. Compliments to the authors for their effor ts and interest in making their subject seem more interesting. May their efforts bear fruits.

The advantage of such short booklets is the ease with which one can carry it anywhere for preparation of any competitive examinations. Wish the authors and students all success in learning Psychiatry.

Preface

I never thought I would go into writing books! A lot of learning material would not be available unless you compile it in a systematic manner and preserve it. This endeavor is yet another step in that direction. The first edition of the book was a dream which became a reality in 2017. I was immensely touched by the appreciations received from the students, readers and question paper setters which motivated me to move on to the revised second edition. This edition is around 50% larger than the first edition. It has more than 1600 questions and answers which would help medical undergraduates, post graduates and also students preparing for entrance / competitive examinations. We have taken utmost care to minimize errors.

I thank all the contributors for their whole hearted cooperation. I thank my family members for their immense suppor t especially my wife Sushma and son Ishaan as the time spent on this is majorly from their quota.

I extend my thanks to Mr Wilfred of Chetana Printers for his cooperation.

Tips to answer MCQs

l Plan your time and pace. Allocate time to review your answers

l Read each question carefully: Multiple-choice tests also examine your ability to read carefully and thoughtfully, as much as they test your ability to recall and reason.

l Read each of the responses:
Don’t just stop when you come upon the one

that seems likely. Remember, you are looking for the best answer, not only a correct one.

l Identify key words:
Circle or underline key words, such as “all,”

“always,” “never,” “none,” “not,” “few,” “many,”some,” “sometimes.”and“except”.

l Identify subject area:
Identifying what lecture, reading, topic or laboratory exercise the question is from might help you narrow the choice of possible responses.

l Identify what is being asked:
Answer each question in the context of what the examiner intended

l The “cover up” strategy:
Some students find it helpful to read the question and try to recall the answer from memory before looking at each of the five responses.

l The “true/false” strategy:
Identify if the question is looking for a true or false statement. Then label each of the five responses as “true” or “false” and eliminate those that do not correctly complete the question.

l Don’t dismiss a response because it seems too obvious and simple an answer; if you are well prepared for the test, some of the questions may appear very straight forward.

As you read through the possible responses, mark off the ones you know are wrong. This will save time if you have to come back to the question later.

l If you are not certain of an answer, guess! Only if there is no negative marking

l Look at none of the above and all of the above options
l Test makers have to make sure that right answers are indisputably right, so can think of the long answers or the detailed ones lResearch indicates your first answer is usually the right one!

l Use exclusion mechanism is case of confusion
