What about subjects like Radiology,Anasthesiology,Dermatology and Psychiatry?

Author: parinPostPosted:     Post subject: psychiatry & others..

Neeraj Ahuja is a very good text book for psychiatry for final MBBS.

Harrison is also good for newer drugs & DSM-IV TR criteria..
DK- notes on psychiatry is also a good one..

skin is good from Davidson & some topics from Golwala & Harrison.

but if you want to prepare well, go for PG books..

Author: shimmeringstarr21PostPosted:     Post subject:

thanks.A senior, in my college mentioned Khopkar for skin-vd any idea how it is?

Author: arsenal1PostPosted:     Post subject: Khopkar

Author: arsenal1PostPosted:     Post subject: Book 4 radio

We dont need radio 4 theory but as radio comes in every subject be it med or surg.So is there any book which explain basics of radiology?

Primary anasthesia is a good choice for Anasthesia,so said the Post Graduate Students in my coll.Also,reading a few chapters from Tripathi about anasthetic agents,muscle relaxants,preanasthetic medication helps.

Fully agree. Pakka.

Author: sindhuj PostPosted:     Post subject:

medicine : kumar & clark ( main) , cecil ( referance ) , kundu ( clinics) , Alagappan ( clinics )

surgery : SRB ( shri ram bhatt ) , Bailey , Makhan Lal saha ( clinics ) & das ( clinics & short cases)

OBG: dutta , topics from essential obstetrics arulkumaran , shaw

paed: OP Ghai , suraj gupta (few topics)

ortho : maheswari , ebenezeer ( general ortho) , Apleys ( hip joint)

Author: sindhuj PostPosted:     Post subject:

each person is different from other , so is their grasping power , reading style & so on. i would suggest one should not blindly get books what every one is following but go through books & see which book you are more comfortabile , then only you should get it. I was advised by seniors to get davidson , which is a really , good book but i felt more comfortable with clark. CNS is best in harrison.one other thing is that we are studying a professional course , not in a primary or high school . one should refer different books when studing a topic caz you never know each book might have a new point that you never know abt. OP ghai has most of the thing best , suraj gupta has few topis best .

Author: drtenzin PostPosted:     Post subject: cmdt or kumar and clark

cmdt or kumar and clark??

Author: DrMakRP PostPosted:     Post subject:

Kumar and Clark, and oxford handbook is a great combination. I used pastest questions as well to help. Prepares you for next step as well.
