Tips for scenario type questions on exams


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I notice that I have difficulty answering questions that involve "what would you do in this situation", such as what to treat first; a temporal bleed or a flailed chest (was a question on the exam, and i chose temporal bleed).

Anyone have any tips for scenario type questions? I know this is a very general question, but my trouble is in this section.

I find the best solution is to picture myself treating that patient. What do I do when I form that image in my mind? What order do I do it in? etc.

If I still answer incorrectly at that point I probably have an error in my process requiring correction. The mark off is actually to my benefit in that it has identified an area of weakness.
