AIPGMEE preparations - what is the best strategy? How should it be done – comprehensively or strategically?

The toppers of AIPGMEE are of the view that preparation should ideally start by April. Then you would have sufficient time for subject wise preparations. Each and every topic is important and therefore the topics should be studied in detail. Here’s how to prepare for AIPGMEE in 8 months. But if you have started late you should devote more hours on daily basis and in addition you also need to be quicker. Shorter subjects like Radiology, Dermatology and Anesthesia can be prepared from notes or guides. More time should be devoted to heavier subjects like Pharmacology, Pathology and Medicine.

What about the book Harrisons Internal Medicine? How should this book be studied?

This is a commonly asked question by the medical aspirants. Teachers and Toppers advice not to overdo this book. It’s a deal to study such a big book as it is and if you are unable to study it completely, it may highly dampen your spirits. Study the parts which are important. Select the most repeated topics from the previous year papers of AIPGMEE. You can read those from Harrisons book. The book is indeed very educating and knowledgeable, which you will realize once you will read it. But it’s definitely not a standard book for PGMEE preparation.
