With just 3 months to go for the exam,there is an visible apprehension in air,regarding what books to follow.
MCQ Books for Practice
The views apply differently for different set of people.
Usually,this exam is taken by those set of students who are also preparing for other exams like AIIMS,AIPGE & other state entrance examinations.
For those whu fall in this category,best would be a combination of ,
RxPG DNB book
Advantages of this combination
 U dont need to follow a different book just for DNB & get distracted for the rest of the exams, which usually come in a row.
 U get full exposure of the type of questions asked in previous DNB exams & also the rest the exams,& if u notice, overlap & repetitions do occur.
By getting exposure of all these questions altogether u get automatically prepared for future overlaps & repetitions.
For those who are currently preparing ONLY for DNB part 1,bhatia can be a good option!
But then again,this book is so jammed with mistakes that starting fresh at this time would only lead to more frustration .
If u hav already solved Bhatia,then also it wud be a good option to solve Salgunan & RxPG DNB book at least once,keeping in mind the facts of repetition & overlap.
Note: If ure following PG Plus,there is no need to switch over to Salgunan.
PG Plus is equivalent to Salgunan.
DNB Primary is just like any other PG entrance exam & u gotta hav ur fundas clear & get ur basics right.
& For this,no MCQ book can replace the standard texts we had in our UG days.
However,its not possible to read everything & be able to remember & recollect it on the exam day.
I am just listing down the "must reads" for this exam:
1st few chapters Ganong,
1st few chapters Robbins,
last few chapters Harper,
1st few chapters Harrison &
K.D.Tripathi as thouroughly as possible
P.S.:This article is just for the sake of guiding students & author has no intentions to promote/demote any book,watsoever.
