hi Madaan, how come you have Surgery, Medicine and OB&G exams before ENT, Ophthal and PSM, anyways myself and RMH have planned to read Ophthal during the last week and from tomorrow we are starting ENT. You can go through the questions on Conjunctiva and Cornea from the earlier posts in this tag, thanks for RMH, we have a good data-base of previous questions from both of our boards. Regards PSM we follow Park and i think it is the standard elsewhere also, i gave one reading during the month of January and will revisit once i'm comfortable with ENT and Ophthalmology, invariably by 26th April, i should start PSM.
