QBase Anaesthesia 3 is the third volume in the QBase series of book + CD-ROM packages and is aimed at the FRCA candidate. Both the book and CD contain 555 questions divided into a number of pre-set exams (with accompanying fully referenced explanatory notes) and there are also a number of pre-set short exams to attempt, utilising the questions in the book. The CD-ROM can be installed in seconds and gives the reader an incredible range of options, greatly increasing the utility and value of the book. Not only can the reader practice the set exams, but the program will mark these exams, allow the reader to customize exams to focus in on areas requiring further revision, shuffle the stems (A-E) to prevent the candidate from memorising 'patterns' and advise on examination strategy. It also has the facility to print out and store test results and provide helpful notes on each question. The CD-ROM accompanying this volume has been improved so that the exam analysis now gives a subject-based as well as an overall analysis. On installation, the CD-ROM will automatically update the version of the Qbase program released with QBase Anaesthesia 1 or 2.
