Hello, please tell us something about yourself.
Hello, my name is Dr. Praful Pandey. I have done my MBBS from Maulana Azad Medical College. I secured Rank 2 in AIIMS PG Exam held in May 2017.
What do you think is the correct approach to study for AIIMS PG? Only MCQ's or Theory+MCQ's?
AIIMS is a very conceptual exam according to me. Being thorough with your basics is a must to be able to crack it. I would recommend that one should focus on their concepts and standard books in their MBBS and adopt a much more revision and MCQ based approach during internship.
When should the preparation ideally be started?
I believe that one should start as early as possible because the more time you have the more thoroughly you read. Such detailed reading helps a lot in the exams.
Please list the books you studied for each subject.
The books I studied for preparation are as follows:
Anatomy- HAMS textbook and diagrams from Gray's anatomy
Biochem- Harper and Arvind Arora
Microbiology- I made notes from Ananthanarayan and Paniker's Textbook of Microbiology in my 2nd year / Mukherjee for Parasitology
Forensics- Sumit Seth
PSM- Vivek Jain + Parks notes made in 3rd year + Biostatistics for USMLE
Ophthal- Class notes + Parsons
Medicine- I read a major chunk of Harrisons out of interest. If not possible Dr. Thameem Sir's notes are very good
Surgery- General Surgery from Bailey Discussion notes for Trauma rest - Pritesh Singh
