The TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) education and examination programme is sponsored by the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Entrusted by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ministry of Public Health of the People's Republic of China sponsored its first formal acupuncture training course for foreign doctors in 1981 and from then on, normalized TCM education and examinations began to spread worldwide.

This selection of examination questions in TCM is offered in the hope that it may be found useful in any of the following four ways:

1. As a source of ready-made questions for use by examiners of TCM-related organizations.

2. As a source of ideas which may aid examiners in the construction of new questions.

3. As an aid to candidates planning to take TCM examinations and to score high on them.

4. As a means by which students can assess their own progress in acquiring TCM knowledge.

The questions in this book will show you what is required and therefore help you get the most out of your studies. You will also get the "feel" of the examination. This book contains many "similar situations" -as you will discover when you take the actual examinations in China and abroad.

In going over the questions in this book, you will not -if you use this book properly -be satisfied merely with the answer to a particular question. You will want to do additional study on the other choices for the same questions. In this way you will broaden your background, which will help your preparation for the examination or your treatment of the patients.

Included in this book are multiple-choice and traditional questions, both focusing on the mastery of basic TCM theory, acupuncture and manipulations, diagnosis and cases analysis. There is now growing evidence to suggest that these questions appear simultaneously in all kinds of examinations, as are being demonstrated daily in China.

The answers appear at the back and, where available, a figure is provided showing the facility of the question. This is derived from the average proportion of candidates correctly answering the question over all the occasions when it has been used in formal examinations. It has to be emphasized also that all the answers involved in this book do not go far from the textbooks Essentials of Chinese Acupuncture and Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion published by Foreign Languages Press.
