PLAB Part 1

The purpose of First Aid for the PLAB Part I Exam is to help medical students and international medical graduates review the clinical questions and prepare for the Professional and Linguistics Assessment Board Exam, Part I (PLAB Part I). Preparing for this examination can be a stressful, difficult and costly task. This book helps students make the most of their limited time, money and energy.

As is often the case in medical college, we found that the best advice a student can receive is from other medical students. We also recognized that certain clinical topics and situations are ‘popular’ and appear frequently in examinations. With this in mind, First Aid for the PLAB Part I Exam was started in April, 2002.
As we studied for the PLAB Part I Exam, we examined and evaluated scores of books and thousands of sample EMQs. We kept track of useful study strategies, frequently tested facts, and helpful mnemonics through a simple computer database. This book is a culmination of that database.
The title reflects the potential value of this book as the “first” one to get before buying other, and the fact that PLAB exams are stressful and unpleasant experiences that students may “aid” each other in overcoming. We feel that this study guide provides a unique and pragmatic approach to the PLAB Part I and that it contains useful text not found in current PLAB EMQ books.
Throughout the work a conscious motive has been kept by us not to provide solutions to the readers but to make him aware of the direction he or she may need to work into solve any question. Many controversial options or answers have been explicitly been told in the text and the readers are supposed to find or satisfy themselves about the correct answers on their own. We do not believe in spoon feeding as much as we do not believe in letting you wander aimlessly in the wild sea of these questions.
Entries in First Aid for the PLAB Part I Exam originated from hundreds of students who have appeared in previous PLAB exams and reproduced those questions solely on the basis of their memory (Authors did not reproduce any questions themselves, they only solved the material available to them). Because of certain limitations of the method of reproducing question on the basis of memory, there can be wide variations from the actual questions or their options. So we along with the publishers are not claiming any responsibility for the accuracy or even existence of any question in this book in the exam quoted. Still this book is a necessecity as it teaches you to approach the frequently ouccurring PLAB EMQs in a clinical and systematic manner.
We and Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd intend to continue updating First Aid for the PLAB Part I Exam so that the book grows in quality and scope and continue to reflect the EMQs asked in the PLAB Part I Exam. If you have any study strategies, high yield facts with mnemonics, book reviews or previous questions of PLAB (should be strictly memory based), please use the forms inside to submit your contributions (See How to contribute, page xvii). Any one who submits material subsequently used in the next edition of First Aid for the PLAB Part I Exam receive personal acknowledgement in the next edition and a handsome cash reward per complete entry.

Good Luck for the PLAB
