Overview

Aspirant’s preparing for the medical PG entrance examination usually get caught in the hype of referring to every bit of information that is related to the Medical PG. They often get themselves into wasting a lot of time while going through several books for every single subject. This gives birth to confusion as different books carry a different way of explaining the same thing. Some books may even carry some wrong information which can haunt you during your examination. Above all referring to too many books wastes a lot of time when every single minute is very important for you.

Hence refer to the correct books to prepare for NEET PG, AIIMS PG and other Medical PG exams. Not just books candidates also need to focus on the best strategic approach towards preparation of the examination.

 

Time needed to prepare for PGMEE

The best strategy is hard work and religious dedication for PGMEE preparation. Aspirants may start their preparation during or after their internship. 2,000 hours of dedicated study is an ideal time to prepare for the exam. These 2,000 hrs can be covered in 8-12 months for an average student. If you've been an average student during MBBS, you can still get a clinical seat in Govt medical college, here's how.

 

Strategy and Focus Area

According to previous year toppers, the focus should be on the concepts and one should have a thorough knowledge of facts.

In the last couple of years, very few repeat questions have been asked in the examination, however, this does not mean that you don't need to study previous year papers. Even if the questions are not repeated you can get a fair idea of important topics from previous year papers.

Practice is needed to tackle image based questions in the exam. Its good practice to study and understand each and every concept with the help of a picture.

Dealing with Harrison's Internal Medicine

Students who have clarity on the basic concepts of medicine can refer to the Harrisons Internal Medicine. However, if you've not read Harrison during your profs, avoid reading the book when you have limited time for PG prep.

 

Approach to Social Preventive Medicine (SPM)

SPM is a very important subject for entrance preparation. Try to spend more time studying SPM.

Study SPM MCQ books thoroughly and also take SPM mock test. If you get any important points from ‘Park’ just note that in the MCQ book itself. Do not waste time on reading all the contents given in textbook.
