5 thoughts on “Miscellaneous books in Anatomy 1st year MBBS”
I have a love hate relationship with this book, in some parts it saves me literally hours of time with simple, no bs, point-based explainations and flow charts too.
On the other hand in some parts, I feel (especially in CNS) one sentence has no connection to the next. Unnecessary point additions and lots of low yield stuff is interjected. I think if it’s best from an exam pov, if physiology exam is tough where you study. Don’t read this book before getting a good picture of the concept from lecture/ video.
Just the jaundice table is the best. 😂
Tables are somewhat good for summarizing. Theory is poor in explanation.
Gk pal is better, more accurate and up to date.
Everything is written in points form making it abgood book for reading before exams and passing them with good marks but would recommend a foreign author book along with it for conceptual understanding.
This will be your saviour in college examinations – bulleted information , flow charts and easy to diagrams – everything reproducible in your theory exam.
Try to read a more standard book otherwise for better understanding.
This book is most simplified and informative overall for physiology. Its the best for proff preparation.
