Re: need help in preparation
Well dear FCPS-1 for Paeds is da same as for Adult medicine i.e. FCPS-1 MEDICINE & ALLIED.
So here is what I did and by Grace of ALLAH succeeded in 1st attempt :-
As regards the duration of study,well if u hv a sound knowledge of
basic sciences n u did them well from relevant textbooks during
M.B.B.S. then u can prepare in even 3-4 months.I prepared 4 only 3
months but without any private job i.e. about 8-10 hrs of daily study.The books are :-
1-Snells Anatomy review for Gross anatomy ( leaving osteology,muscle
attachments;concentrate more on clinical aspects n Nerve supply)
Prepare Anatomy well 'cos in my exam some 40 odd questions were from
2-BRS+KAPLAN Physiology ( both books r essential )
3-BRS Pathology ( prepare General Pathology extremely well n if u can
afford time u can even prepare Gen. Patho 4m MEDIUM ROBBIN's )
4-USMLE 1st aid for Biochemistry
5-High yield for Embryology and Histology
6-KAPLAN for Neuroanatomy
7-KAPLAN Pharmacology (a must-do book for FCPS-1 MED &Allied)
Practice lots of MCQs from MURAD, AZEEM SHEIKH, n also go thru KAPLAN
MCQs Q-Book (not the Q-BANK).
Ideally u shud go thru MURAD
twice.However do keep in mind dat there r about 5% mistakes in MURAD
but u can easily pick them up by referring 2 textbooks. Work hard n hv faith in ALLAH. U'll succeed. GOOD LUCK !!!
