MCQs in Pharmacy Practice 2nd Ed

MCQs in Pharmacy Practice 2nd EdBook Reviews: The first edition of the book MCQs in Pharmacy Practice was published in 2004. This timeframe gave assessors of professionals practicing in the health field time to follow the evolvement of the different forms of MCQs. Six years ago, adopting a multiple choice format as opposed to the traditional essay type was a daring task with all its implications on how much fairer the new system was over the traditional one. In this second edition, Lilian Azzopardi has succeeded to move further away from the True/False type of setting to more challenging formats. The newer types of MCQs demand appreciation of the subject whereby knowledge accrued is tested by having to judge whether the first of two statements is true and decision-making skills are required to decide whether the second statement is a correct explanation of the first.

The BNF recommended for use with the first edition of MCQs in Pharmacy Practice was the 44th edition. At the time of writing this preface, the latest edition of the British National Formulary (BNF 57) was published. The editor has therefore updated the information in the questions to reflect that in the current BNF, so as to ensure that the questions are practical and contemporary. The answers given to the questions, which again form an essential part of this edition, have been meticulously updated by Lilian M Azzopardi, recently appointed Head of Department of Pharmacy in the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery.

In this capacity Lilian Azzopardi acts as chairperson of the examination boards in pharmacy practice including the final examination (which is in an MCQ format) that leads to registration as a pharmacist. As Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, to which the department of pharmacy belongs, I could read in this text the meticulousness and diligence that are so characteristic of the attributes that Professor Azzopardi possesses.
