EMQ & CAP 3

I wish I had this methodical approach to studying and learning when I first started training. I think I would have been so much more balanced in my approach and kinder to my patients and myself during the last 4 years...for not learning and memorising things as part of the strict dogmatic approach that often gets touted as the only way to perform an assessment or organise management. Thank you to the team at Psych Scene. You do a fantastic job...if only I had known earlier!.

EMQ & CAP 2

The PsychScene MCQ course is an invaluable and highly efficient tool that should be utilised by every candidate considering applying for the RANZCP EMQ exam. Thanks to the guidance and advice from the team at PsychScene I was able to pass this exam very comfortably after just one year of training! I encourage all new trainees to enrol as early as possible to boost your overall exam performance as well as help shape your mind to more mature and sophisticated points of view that will assist with challenges further down the track. A perfect blend of exam smarts and core critical knowledge. Don't miss it!
