List: Books for I MBBS [#]
HERE R SOME OF THE BOOKS I SUGGEST FOR I ST YEAR MBBS:


ANATOMY:

*CHAURASIA---must(full)--preferably ul,ll.thorax. abd.
*DUTTA----HEAD N NECK( i read from it n found it simply great n better than bdc'c h & n)
*I.B.SINGH--EMBRYOLOGY--easier
*I.B.SINGH-NEUROANAT.(must)

**refer---*SNELL's(very good book,, see the tables for eg. the actions, nrve n bld. supply of muscles)

---*NETTER'S ATLAS( U CAN EVEN BUY THIS BOOK IF U CAN AFFORD....ITS WORTH N LL HELP U THROUGHT....WHETHER IT BE SURG, ENT, OPHTHO..)




PHYSIOLOGY

(actually there is no one complete n nice book, so)

*GUYTON--start reading a topic from it
*GANONG-- THE ULTIMATE BOOK FOR PG....try to master it after u have developed interest in the subject by doing some topics from guyton..

TRY TO DO BOTH THE BOOKS SIMULTANEOUSLY(GUYTON FIRST BUT GANONG MOST ATTENTIVELY)

**ref----*A.K.JAIN(is a good book to start with but with lots of mistakes....is almost a copy of ganong.....so cross check with ganong....can be a useful book to those not much interested in this sub but not sufficient)

----*vander--can be refered to when all the above books fail to ans some of ur Queries for i found explainations to some Qs of mine that wasn't given in any of the above books





BIOCHEMISTRY

*VASUDEVAN ( i personally found it better for the tables, flowcharts n explainations r simple n easy to retain n still elaborate n complete} so i strongly recommend this book
*HARPER--is important for pg(people say) but i couldn't develop much interest in this book....should be also read if have interest in this subject FOR BIOCHEM IS AN IMP SUB FOR PG ENTRANCE
*SATYANARAYAN----I went through this book to.. the only advantage of this book is that its presentation is good n clear but its not enough singly for many things rn't given completely here. should be kept as a book 2nd to any one of the other two


UNANSWERED: Obtain Passport,Id cards,Driving License,Certificates(Email: [email protected])IELTS,TOEFL and many others

as far as my knowledge and experience about the subject is concerned ......Lipincott is no doubt a very good book especially if u r interested in USMLE n if u like the subject.....

however it was the pictoral illustrations in that book that made me refer that book or for that reson any lipincott book like in micro n patho....for it made things easy to remember for me.......

well i believe satya n lippincott is good enough if u have once in a while access to harper when u r solving mcqs...

i say so because surely u can answer all the conceptual ans from the books u have for there is no additional concepts in harper .....but u may need to refer Harper for the few tough factual data kind of thing given in Harper only......anyways its difficult to retain them till the end...so i don't think its a must....just read from a book that u find interesting n make ur basics strong.......

i went through satya(full), vasudevan(full) n somethings from lippin......n personally found Vasudevan so inteesting that i changed from satya to it midway in 1st year....good luck

go for i.b.singh n refer dutta's neuroanat....

some find krishna garg easy for exams but since...u r not interested in marks u need not even open this book...

dutta's neuroanat is a great book with lots of informations n will really help u to build ur knowledge n concept but i suggest u do topics from it after u after doing the same from inderbir singh neuroanat(its simpler)

hope its useful....good luck

Hey buddy...even i bought the same combination as you put forward but what my seniors told that you must supplement a foreign writers book with an indian writer.……and 1 more thing...ganong at basic level is much harder to grasp so prefer reading guyton...

ANATOMY

Gross-
Grays anatomy for students; know the basics, build concepts, yes, anatomy can be conceptual!
BD Chaurasia; more detailed, clinical anatomy, diagrams are a major drawback, best friend for exams
Netter/Sabota/Thieme; an atlas is a must
Optional- Cunningham; dissection manual, if you read this book, youre getting an anatomy distinction
Keith L Moore; Best clinical anatomy
Grays 40E; when confused, this is the mother book. Look up for the awesome diagrams.

Neuro-
I personally love this subject.
Snells clinical neuroanatomy; no better book
Vishram Singh; exam partner, some chapters very good

Embryology-
Langman; one and only

Histology-
IB Singh ; DiFiore’s is a good atlas ; Ross is a higher level option(not needed though)

PHYSIOLOGY

No single book serves the purpose here.
Guyton; good book to understand concepts for the first time
Ganong; excellently 'reinforces' concepts, PG exam
RL Bijlani; lesser known book, nonethless, a good one. It has a literary style to it. Special senses is excellent in it. Blood, environmental, nerve muscle are good.
Optional- JB West essentials; respiratory physio book, if you have time, read circulation and mechanics from it.

BIOCHEMISTRY

Harper; excellent book, must reads are metabolism, plasma proteins, iron biochemistry, hemoglobin.
Lippincott; protein structure, lipoproteins, nucleotides, amino acid metab, RNA.
Levinson; immunology

Cunningham's Manual of Practical Anatomy
Completely redesigned in an attractive new format, this popular three-volume manual provides students and practitioners with a comprehensive guide to human anatomy and a dissection guide recognized throughout the world.
