if u r goin for concepts i wld suggest das
For gen surg Das is THE book even better than Bailey
For renal & git i used das only but some topics like renal stones bph & prostate ca or peptic ulcers are endless in das
Moreover surgeries of gall bladder and gastric are a bit difficult to understand without any help
Das requires lot of devotion while mainpal cld be finished in a week but retention frm mainpal is almost next to zero
I used majority part Das while some things frm L&B & manipal
Choose whichever u r comfortable with
For liver definitely study manipal icon_biggrin.gif

Bailey is THE book but if u r looking for something easier then try Manipal, its pretty concise and easy when the exams are near.


dr_dude
Aim DNB Part 2

manipal seems 2 b too less...

i would suggest das.

for passing, manipal is more than enough. but u might need to refer other books like bailey for few topics like pediatric surgery, general surgery, etc.

dr_dude
Aim DNB Part 2

svjyo


once u see a case study in gr8 detail regarding the topics.esp. GOO,BREAST CA,HERNIA,ULCER,SWELLING,MASS ABDOMEN, OTHER TOPICS U CAN GO THRU DAS


sonofsun84


would recommend BAILEY & LOVE as a primary text
but DAS gives you more facts in a single volume

if u r goin for concepts i would suggest das
For gen surgery Das is THE book even better than Bailey or the best would be a combination of the two
For git i used das only but some topics like renal stones bph & prostate ca or peptic ulcers are endless in das and very very time consuming
Moreover surgeries of gall bladder and gastric are a bit difficult to understand without any help
Das requires lot of devotion while mainpal could be finished in a week but retention from mainpal is good because of the mnemonics etc
ultimately you have to
Choose whichever u r comfortable with


ericliang


but if you want to help your third year studies to count

when you prepare for pg then make sure that you read

Bailey all topics at least once



i didn't and now im regretting my decision



i used das initially and then went on to Bailey for a

week or two

ultimately crammed from manipal


rmh


My prof says, the latest edition of Bailey & Love is of PG level... But must read if u r preparing for an entrance...


drnirrag
Aim MS Othopaedics

there s a short cases text book of surgery by das... reading that once is good for theory practical and pre-pg. u can complete reading it in 10 days max...
