TCM Study Guide Series: Diagnostics
TCM Study Guide Series: Diagnostics provides resource material and multiple-choice questions designed to help TCM practitioners and students prepare themselves to take board tests. The book's 2,100 questions cover the full range of TCM diagnostic theory and practice. Answers to all of the questions are found in the back of the book. The book's resource material includes descriptions of the fundamental disgnostic elements (pulses, tongue color, facial complexion, etc.), explanations of the basic diagnostic theories, three extensive glossaries, and a table of terminology equivalencies.
The first volume in this study guide series (Acupuncture) was reviewed in The Journal of Chinese Medicine five years ago. Now this volume is offered with the same general format, namely several thousand self-testing questions on diagnostics, from the relatively easy to the downright difficult. The main sources are the standard teaching materials used in traditional medical colleges in China, but they have been adapted for western readers by a) checking against a variety of English language reference texts, and b) being presented in multiple choice question format, to match the method of testing most commonly used in the USA. Although designed to assist students preparing for certification exams in the USA, as self-study and self-testing manuals these books would be valuable for any student or studying practitioner. The answers to all the questions are given in the back of the books – no cheating now!
