Anatomy is a subject taught in the 1st Prof of MBBS and candidates hardly retain few glimpses from the subject by the time they complete their final Prof.
Also, time for FMGE prep is limited and wasting a lot of time per subject is not recommended. Nobody can afford to cover the entire Anatomy syllabus owing to time constraints.
Under such circumstances, the best strategy to get through the FMGE exam is Selective Study.
This article will bring forth the Important Topics in Anatomy. One general tip that we can suggest for all the topics is that you must never miss nerve supply, arterial supply and venous drainage of any region.
