We have put together this book in order to assist the readers in the learning process. This book may be useful for medical students, ophthalmology residents, practicing ophthalmologists, nurses, internal medicine and those who would like to practice on sample questions in General Medicine. Our past experiences in International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) exams as well as in MRCS/FRCS examinations reveal that General Medicine are always very difficult for exam candidates. Hence, our attempt to bring together a comprehensive question bank in order to assist those candidates. We have introduced a new format which is putting the answers below the questions therefore the readers can find the answers more easily. Correct answers had been mentioned in bold as well as in detail explanation in order to assist the readers to find a more comprehensive review. We hope that this approach makes the book more user-friendly. First section of the Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) book series by American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) was used as the main reference. As the educational requirements have grown, learning processes have changed. Each year, an increasing number of our colleagues with limited time are required to obtain credential from the board in national and international examinations. We strongly recommend that candidates review this book following their study of the basic and clinical textbooks.
