Foreword
Membership of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) is a highly regarded qualiication throughout the world and conirms that the successful candidate has achieved a widely respected standard of knowledge, skills, attitudes and competencies in the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology. he award of MRCOG is made ater successfully passing all three parts of the MRCOG examination. he Part 2 MRCOG is designed to test the skills necessary to pass from core clinical training (ST1– ST5) to higher specialist training (ST6 and ST7), and represents a signiicant hurdle in this transition.
his book of practice questions is an invaluable resource for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination. Written by experienced examiners and members of RCOG examination subcommittees, this book gives candidates the most relevant and authentic practice in preparation for the examination of all the currently available resources. he authors have vast expertise in writing examination questions and coaching candidates through courses, and therefore this book represents the most relevant examination preparation material available to date. he authors make very clear that this book should be used in addition to the standard revision resources as recommended by the RCOG but have helpfully referenced each and every explanation of the correct answer to enable the candidate to focus their revision of each particular topic.
his resource should become an essential part of examination preparation for all candidates attempting the Part 2 MRCOG examination.

Preface
he current format of the Part 2 MRCOG examination is now well established with the change to written papers containing single best answer (SBAs) and extended matching questions (EMQs) commencing in March 2015.
he Part 2 MRCOG examination is primarily concerned with testing candidates’ knowledge of the entire specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology as deined by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) curriculum.
he new Part 3 examination now provides the clinical assessment. It is always preferable to enter an examination having had ample opportunity to practise the type of questions with which one will be faced. To this end, we have produced this book containing 250 SBA and 250 EMQ questions. We have mapped the questions across all the modules of the curriculum that appear in the Part 2 MRCOG examination and have used the following sources as our primary references: • RCOG guidelines • National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines • Articles in he Obstetrician & Gynaecologist. he styles of the 500 questions are diferent, but this will mimic the actual examination, since numerous authors have contributed to the Part 2 MRCOG question bank. In this book, we have tried to conform to the style of questions found in the Part 2 MRCOG examination but have deliberately separated the questions into the diferent modules of the syllabus. In this way, candidates will be able to test their knowledge in each of the modules ater they have completed the necessary reading for that particular module. For each answer, we have provided a brief explanation and a reference to allow further or more in-depth reading of that subject. he explanations given here are not meant to replace the wider reading of the subject that is required to attain the level necessary to pass the Part 2 MRCOG examination. Knowledge accumulates, practice alters and guidelines change. We will be grateful for feedback. We hope that candidates for the Part 2 MRCOG will ind this book helpful in their preparation for the Part 2 MRCOG examination.
