hi sara,
short book never help..it can help in subjects like FMT but dont use a short book unless u have finished the text book....
best thing to do within one month is to collect all important questions that were asked in previous years in ur colg,plus the class exams....
now mark them in ur book..(u read k d tripathi for pharma...i dont know which one u read )
now study selectively those question.....
read the imp classification..(not more than 20)

its always easy to read for exams....
we too just start one month before exam..everyone does the same..so dont panic..
pharma is a subject which needs revision...dont cram just get familiar with the pages..and i know u can definitely do well...

just with the help imp question u can clear both patho and pharma...

there is no short book which can help...but for FMT u can go for SHARP.it helps during exams...

keep revising cvs,git,cns & ans in pharma...i dont think its a big deal if u have earlier finished the book..
antimicrobial,general pharma are easy..
hormones,ans r very imp in viva.

ye all the best..
dont u read k d tripathi...it is the best book..


sara_qmc


i'v never heard of this book i guess it is not available here in Pakistan so i'm studying Lipponcott as all of us here do


Mick


anyone heard of 'clinical pharmacology made ridicilously simple' ?. It has short concise notes and some useful tables. I think the author is Goldberg or someone. It is very helpful as a revision tool and crammer.

Take care

Hi drnarya! icon_smile.gif Iam in my second MBBS right now, first sem. I want to know a good book for pharma useful for exams, and it should also be adequate in the content. I read Goodman and Gillman till now, and now I need to consolidate every thing. Is Katzung apt now? I have exams coming up this month.( Please don't suggest Tripathi icon_sad.gif , nothing gets into my head from that book! Katzung was lovely.)Can you please help me out?

KDT is the best option...

hi friends....m really goin thro a low bcoz i flunked in pharmac in my 2nd/1st mbbs i.e. 3rd sem internal xam by 3 marks.....m in my 2nd/2nd mbbs n hav started feelin dat m not studying pharmac d right way....i read,understand & learn by sittin wid d topic once.....
it would b a great help if any1 can suggest d right way to study pharmac or any corrections i shud make which would benefit me....


menon_remo
Aim MCh

hi friend... Best way is to study pharmac for theory is repeatition.. Itz a diff subject to go n vomit n papers by study just the day before.. So try to finish off portions 2 or 3 days before n revise what youve studied 2 to 3 times.. This will definitely give you an edge over others.. Highlight imp points like imp adverse effects, Study classification very well...

If you read tripathi 10 to 15 times [in 1.5 years u must understnd] b4 ur II MB xams, surely youll come out in flying colours maybe even with a distinction n your hand!!!!

ALL THE BEST!!


docdon

hi friend........i guess studying d same topic 10-15 times wud b a difficult task as i hav my university xamz in nov.....bt i gt ur point----study d topics as many times as possible so it remains etched in memory.....

re
hey docdon.. i meant 10-15 times during whole of 1 1/2 yrs. nywayz u got de point... Revise imp topics as many times as possible. U would already hav referred imp topics 4m previous univ xams. So al d best frnd!!

re
@aditi2821.. As far as pharm s concerned, i prefer tripathi because it is lot easier to grasp things from.. but katzung ll surely help you to clear concepts but diff to study from an exam point of view...

@ashish007... Most of the questions from pharm can be answered by reading tripathi though few can be asked from goodman as well... But on the whole i think tripathi gives a better yield as far as indian exams are concerned...

How to read pharma
Hey,

Im no MD in pharma..But i have passed my mbbs last dec. (Ya still preparing for PG icon_rolleyes.gif but i can give you some tips.. Hope they help u..

1. Dont ever read that book KD Tripathi like I did.You will end up gettin pharmacoconfused!! Instead read Satoskar Bhandarkar phama book(It has a few spelling mistakes but the book is good enough to pass pharma.) It may not measure up to the biggies like Katzung but will help u in the long run. Maybe u can read classifications of drugs in Tripathi. I think all this half life crap is not needed(Except for imp ones like albumin,warfarin,etc)... It will take half ur life to read them!!!
icon_lol.gif

2. Practice, practice ,practice writing the classifications... will help later during pg prep...

3. Read the prototype drugs in each classificaion.. The newer drugs are just an extension of these prototypes...

4. Read as if u were gonna start practicing tomorrow... If u know some docs then u can get a look into their prescriptions..

5. Always have Mnemonics in pharma... absolutely essential... I still remember i made somethin lik 100 mnemonics when i was in II yr mbbs!! Remember, u have got other sub like Patho robbins...

6.If u have the time, read mcq in pharma side by side with a chapter u have finished.. There are books available which gives mcqs chapter wise.. will make readin interestin....

If ur still awake after reading all this, then i wish u best of luck in all ur future exams... Any doubts can ask me...

is lippicot is good enough to study pharma...bcz i feel k d tripathi hard for me and i can't remember it..it is lil bit confusing tooo


dyingforpg


No no no... Lippincott not for us... U read it if u have time to throw away!!! will not help...

Stick to Satoskar and Bhandarkar... Its a very good book... Tripathi many concepts wrong!!! But still stick to tripathi for classifications..


drgauravpandey
Aim AIPGE 2016

thnx a lot for ur resp
can you pls tell me how much time it will take to complete satos n bhandar if i plan to study it...bcz i have lippincot only this time so i think to go through it this time...am i on rit path


dyingforpg


Yes u are... Dont worry.. pharma can be finished in 4 months time max evenfor first time readers... But use a lot of mnemonics... In time.. you will b able to tell all uses and adverse effects without the aid of mnemonics. Best of luck... U can ask me for help anytime.


drgauravpandey
Aim AIPGE 2016

thnx..
can you pls tell me about mnemonics formation..do i found it somewhere or i must make it myself...


dyingforpg


you must make mnemonics for yourself.. Search rxpg.. quite a few mnemonics in this site...
