The revision quizzes can be got to from here. They contain mainly questions from the lectures you have had. There are also a few questions which you have not had in the lectures but which I thought would be useful. Each quiz is in a powerpoint file. If you click on the file name you will get the google version of the file which is fine but less versatile to use than seeing it in powerpoint but will probably work better on mobile devices ----- the alternative is to click the arrow on the right and download the file and open in Powerpoint (probably better on a computer but not a phone or ipad). Go through the powerpoint file in order. The first slides have the questions. once you have tried to answer them then the second half of the file has the answers as well. Because many of you may have limited time in the evenings over the next couple of days, and will be travelling home Friday I have posted questions for days 3 and 4 of the Course as well. I think they will be more useful if you wait till you ahev heard the lecture before trying them, but if you won't ahve time then have a go at them before the lectures. I will leave these all posted once the Course is over. It seems to work OK but any technical problems please email me (Robert.Sarkany@gstt.nhs.uk). All the best Dr Sarkany
