    MCCEE Jan 8 2004 Questions Asked

    Advertisements



    Just did the MCCEE on Jan 8, 2004 -- a bunch of the questions that Dr. Jacob listed were repeated, so the best way to do this exam are past questions. I'm horrible at remembering complete questions, so here are the ones I can remember from the exam for now -- if I remember more later, I'll post them up.

    Another thing -- if you buy the downloadable MCQ bank from www.mcqe.net (around $62 US) there are 9600 questions that prepare you very well for this exam.

    For the MCCEE, don't study any books -- they won't help -- just do all the past questions you can get your hands on, and do the family medicine, community health, and psychiatry (or only psychopharm if you don't have time) chapters from the MCCQE Toronto Notes book.

    Here are the questions I could recall:

    Pictures:

    Woman with hypothyroidism
    Kid with paraumbilical hernia
    Forearm and hand of person with Marfan’s (associated with aortic regurg)
    Kid with chicken pox
    Oral thrush
    X-ray – epiglottitis
    Clubbing (Not associated with chronic bronchitis)

    Other questions:
    Kid with flank pain, father died of brain hemorrhage – polycystic kidney disease
    Hep A acute diagnosis (IgM)
    Not normal flora in vagina – chlamydia
    Thyroid malignancy – solid cold nodule
    Anaphylactic shock – epinephrine
    Sore throat, fever, persisting – treated with ampicillin – pharyngitis follows – mononucleosis
    Patient not able to stand/sit, has to keep pacing – acute akathisia
    Pedigree for autosomal dominant disease
    Antipsychotic least likely associated with EPS – clozapine
    Woman with breast cancer/bone mets – lethargy, anxiety, dysphoria etc – hypercalcemia
    Postmenopausal bleeding – endometrial biopsy
    Miosis associated with – opiate overdose
    Attempted suicide with lorazepam overdose – admit, send for psych assessment
    Kid with electric shock burn – cardiac monitoring for 24 hours
    Schizophrenic with drug induced Parkinsonian symptoms – bromocriptine?
    All present with stridor except – asthma
    Woman with COPD, CAD, etc – theophylline toxicity – possible cause – starting erythromycin
    Blood profile of man with CLL
    Kid with otitis media developing meningitis
    Scabies – all true except – does not occur on palms, fingers, soles (MAY appear on face and hands in babies)
    Woman with hemochromatosis
    Deafness in kid associated with all (unresponsiveness, gentamicin, others) except – family history of brother with delayed speaking
    Most effective way to control stroke incidence – effective control of hypertension
    Kid has conduct disorder (vandalism, fighting, etc) – if you keep investigating, you may also find evidence of – personality disorder
    Defense mechanism associated with borderline PD – splitting
    Male/female sexuality difference – Females have shorter post-orgasmic refractory period
    Vinyl chloride can cause cancer in – liver
    Most common cause of asthma from food – sulfites
    Woman right after childbirth given injection of lidocaine in perineum – when she gets up, she falls back down, becomes cyanotic etc – vasovagal syncope
    Bilateral adnexal pain, nodularity along uterosacral ligament, dyspareunia – best way to confirm diagnosis – laparoscopy (endometriosis)
    Kid falls off tree, flank pain and bloody urethral discharge – retrograde pyelogram

    Good luck!

    Also...

    Also, I have about 750 or so past MCCEE questions, from a which about 30-40% were repeated in the exam when I took it.

    If you're in Toronto/Mississauga/Brampton, etc -- email me if you want the questions -- $20 dollars (CDN) for a floppy with them all on it.

    My email is [email protected].

    Hey guys,

    I just cleared my MCCQE , here are my tips, these worked well for me:
    My top 7 tips for Passing the MCCQE: How to prepare for the MCCQE:

    MCCQE Part 1 : Here's why you should do your best in your first attempt:
    When you apply for a position, the board of interviewers goes through your record and checks how many times you have taken the exam and what were your previous performances like. The Medical Council of Canada’s Evaluating Examination is a mandatory test that all prospective medical practitioners who intend to work in Canada must pass and getting great scores during the first attempt shows that you read and pick up science very fast and your intuition for medicine is well trained.

    Here are some tips to score high on your exams:


    1) Familiarise yourself with the objectives & tested topics: Use the Objectives for the Qualifying Examination as a guideline for preparing study guides and resource material.These parameters have been specifically identified by the MCC as key attributes and topics that medical students should master in order to provide outstanding care. The objectives are a framework for teh exams, and they are free to access on the MCC’s website.

    2) Make a schedule for studying and stick to it. Create a timeline for the topics you wish to cover in a given amount of time, and be sure to throw in a few extra days for review of previously covered material. Organized studying generally leads to a more proficient understanding of the content.

    3) Take advantage of third party resources like CanadaQBank and Toronto notes. The majority of successful test-takers report that the Toronto Notes are the most comprehensive and thorough for MCCQE studying. There is also a plethora of high yield MCQs on CanadaQBank (read their testimonials) with more than 3900 questions geared toward the Evaluating Examination which are based around the exam topics tested by the MCCQE. The ideal time to master this qbank is 3 months, make sure you familiarize yourself with the topics and questions on the qbank.

    If you need a discount code, use “institutecqb” to get a 20% discount. LMCC Exams is another online source for questions that are designed similarly to those you might see on the official test, but I prefre CQB because most of these MCQs were actually on the etest, this is one qbank I would highly recommend.

    4) Familiarize yourself with the test format, question style, and also time limits. Also be aware of the specific energy requirements for actually participating in the test itself. You will need to time yourself and observe your attentiopn span and stamina over time, I use the question bank to time practice on the MCQs. Knowing what to expect before you take the test will help to reduce any unnecessary stress and anxiety.

    5) Practice self-testing and follow up to your results. Try out several different types of practice exams and be sure to review your results thoroughly. Taking the time to analyze your mistakes will surely help you from making them in the future. Dont dwell too much on silly mistakes, you will get them wrong, so allocate 5% to silly mistakes, now focus on topics you need to get better at.

    6) Give yourself plenty of time to master the qbanks and toronto notes. Many successful students report spending at least 7-10 months, sometimes more, fully dedicated to studying for the MCCQE. Not to mention, registering for this exam is not cheap. Avoid wasting your money by ensuring that you are as prepared as possible before you enter on test day. Master the Canadaqbank questions, its imperative. For the record, some people only spend 2-3 months preparing for the exam on CQB, but if you are feeling rusty on any of the topics, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

    7) When taking the test, relax, breathe and pay attention to the question. Many folks report that MCQs on the MCCQE can be vague and somewhat difficult to understand. One of the best ways to concentrate is to actually leave these questions for the last and get back to them when you have more time. Don’t let complex sentence structure throw you off from the primary aspect of timed performance.

    If you follow these seven tips, you will have a much greater chance of obtaining a high score on the MCCQE! Best of Luck!
