Books : No need to study the gigantic books. Just stick to the review books which can also be revised easily very near to the exam. *Read the community medicine book (either by prof. Naveed Alam or prof. Nauman Hashmi) thoroughly as many MCQs come from the community medicine. *For pathology, study from Firdaus or Board Review Series Pathology (BRS), and you can rely on the topics given in the exam format by PMDC. For other subjects, not all the questions come from the format. So be ready to see few questions coming out of course (still related to medicine). Do the General Pathology complete. For systemic pathology, do whatever is given in the format. *For physiology, Firdaus or BRS physiology are best books to study. *For gross anatomy, you must do the upper and lower limbs complete. Small book of Snell’s clinical anatomy is good for that. *For embryoloy, study from Lange or High Yield Embryology. Concentrate on clinical problems relating embryology such as neural tube defects etc. *Neuroanatomy from Made Ridiculous simple *Microbiology from Made Ridiculous simple *Biochemistry from Lippincott or from any review book as many students find it difficult to study from Lippincot. *Pharmacology from lippincot *Firdaus for Forensics.

Jatoi. *For ENT, Study from Dhingra...or from ENT Review by Prof. Firdaus. *For Dermatology, do from ABC of Dermatology by Prof. Tahir Saeed Haroon. If you own a CMDT, do the dermatology from there. Its relatively easy in CMDT than in ABC. *For Gynecology & Obstetrics, Ten teachers or Arshad Chouhan or Terse all are good. *For Paediatrics, Book by Prof. Pervez Akbar Khan is a good choice. *If you r interested in reading MCQs, get the MCQ books written by Dow's professors... Tasaddiq Concise Medical book series
For Part 3: Do the General physical exam, History taking, ECG, X-Ray studies, Cranial nerves…and no need to mention that your concepts should be cleared to justify your answers in viva.
