Ideal stage for pg preparation

i think its important that you read the standard textbooks first. after your 1st year exams you can look at those mcqs n give those tests. its very important that the concepts of the subjects dont get sidelined by your pg prep.
all the very bestl

I'd advice you to concentrate on 1st and 2nd yr concepts during respective years and establish good basics rather than running into pg preparations. And join some pg course or get pg books in prefinal/3rd yr/mini prof (whatever they call it in ur college) only. I and many of my batchmates got respectable ranks in pg exams in first attempt & we all started preparing from 3rd prof only. 4th year if u mean final prof by that is too late i believe.....moreover it is the toughest prof so u may not be able to give much time to pg preparations during it. 3rd is best..

N 1 more question..many are saying that 1 should prefer GUYTON over GANONG during 1st yr...as ganong is more of a pg students oriented book..

guyton, ganong are fancy books.....u can read them in the beginning if u want....just one thing from my experience...a good text book is not the one which is thick or written by foreign writers or has citations from research papers...a good book is one which is easy to understand, can be retained for long and and gives maximum output from minimum input (i.e. most efficient). guyton and ganong dont have these features(i dont know if dese books hv changed in dese 5yrs; at my time dey were all single colored and boring so consider dat too). I believe a.k. jain is best followed by sembulingum, although i also read ganong in my first prof it didnt help me much in d long run i.e. for pg and later i regreted for not reading an easy & efficient book for physio as i did for all other subjects...well this is just my opinion after all.....these things are subjective (differ from person to person)....best thing is you try yourself out which way suits you....try to read a chapter from one book & one from the other & access which one was more easy, less time consuming and more retainable....i am sure u'll end up wid indian writers icon_smile.gif
