Dr. Vivek Lanka: The books that I used for theory are:
Anat– IAMS class notes
Physio– IAMS class notes
Biochem– IAMS material and the entire molecular biology from Harper.
Path– I read only Hemat, tumour markers, staining and fixation aspects from IAMS class notes. I did not read the rest of pathology from any material. I just revised general pathology from Robbins (Obviously. Because it’s just my favourite book!)
Pharm- Garg plus CNS and Chemotherapy from Katzung
Micro– IAMS material and USMLE first aid chapter for Virology (has some good mnemonics)
ENT– Did not read ENT that well. I just read the throat part from IAMS material. Most of the questions from Ear and Nose are either usually covered in Anat or easily answered with logic (that’s my opinion) I just read laryngeal and Nasopharyngeal Ca from Medscape because laryngeal ca was asked in the last exam.
Ophthal– Retina. Especially normal anatomy and physiology, Diabetic Retinopathy, Detachments and ROP from Yanoff & Ducker. The rest from Ruchi Rai. I referred quite a lot of doubts in other topics from Yanoff and noted them down in Ruchi Rai.
PSM– Vivek Jain and Anthony N Glaser for Biostatistics (brilliant book!)
Medicine– “Harrison Based Teaching” volumes by Speed.
Psych– IAMS material is undoubtedly the best. Also I updated myself with some of the new changes in DSM-5 and read USMLE first aid for its mnemonics
Dermat– IAMS class notes
Surgery– Did not read well. Just referred some of the doubts that I got while doing repeats and some closely related topics from Sabiston.
Ortho– Maheshwari. I added a few points to it from Apley during my MBBS days. Read the same book.
O and G– IAMS class notes for Obs. Punit Bhojani for Gynae
Paeds– IAMS material and WHO-AIIMS collaboration centre website.
Anesthesia– Ajay Yadav
