Introduced in 2010, the Nephrology SCE (Specialty Certificate Examination)
is compulsory for the Nephrology trainees to gain a CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) in the Specialty. Candidates who have sat for the exam with their written MRCP are familiar with the best of five formats where they select the best of five plausible and comparable answers. This requires both knowledge and exam technique that is often best achieved through practice questions.
Currently, difficulty of exam preparation is the unavailability of reliable practice questions. This book seeks to fill that void by providing the best of five questions that resemble the exam format with their explanatory answers. The question material was written with the 2010 syllabus in mind and based on contemporary guidelines from KDIGO, KDOQI, ISPD and Renal Association.
Our goal was to create a valuable tool for all trainees revising for the SCE exam, American Board of Nephrology and Arab Board of Nephrology Exam.
Our authors were supported by consultants in the region and we offer our thanks to them all.
We would like to extend our gratitude to our parents and families. Without their support, blessings and encouragement this would not be possible.
We acknowledge the graciousness of our patients who consented the publishing of their pictures for education purposes. We would also like to credit Dr. Ramesh Abdullah for providing renal histology slides from his personal collection.
Finally, much appreciation is given to Professor Philip Kalra for providing his inspirational commentary for this book.
