PGY452/552 Endocrinology previous EXAM questions; Dr. Morales, Spring 2011. 1 These are all my old test questions worth seeing. I have eliminated bad questions, questions that I would not ask again because they don’t reflect current material, and near duplicate questions. The key is at the back, along with the percent correct. The table of abbreviations that will be used on the exam is also in back. Refer to it often, it may help. The first 38 questions came from last year. A word about test taking : Many students do worse on my tests than they otherwise would because of poor test taking skills. As you go through the practice exam, please remember Read the whole question carefully Read all the answers carefully If you know the answer, great. If you are not sure, understand that multiple choice tests are about falsification. If you’re stuck, try treating the question as a series of five true false questions. Some questions are hard. Others are pretty easy. Don’t over think because an answer just seems “too easy.” I am not trying to intentionally fool you. Since I don’t intentionally recycle questions and answers, there are likely to be a couple bad questions or more likely a couple of bad “distracters” (incorrect answers that really could be correct); don’t get cute. Just pick the best answer, and if there is a problem with the test, we’ll figure it out after the analysis comes in. Some questions might seem obscure and unrelated to material covered in class. These questions always refer to a larger underlying principle that was covered in class. Recognize those principles and apply them to these questions if the answer doesn’t come to you right away. really were covered in class. Instead of assuming that you have forgotten something, look hard for the general principle that is buried in that question 1. Which tissue is the major site for gluconeogenesis? a. Adipose b. Skeletal muscle c. Liver d. Pancreatic α‐ cells e. Brain 2. Which hormone binds to a receptor that is autophosphorylated? 3. Which property is different between neurotransmitters of the central nervous system and hormones from the endocrine system?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
