YOUR PREPARATION

Congratulations to all the AFMGians who made it through the MCI SEP 2008.

Write down pertaining to your preps so that it might prove beneficial to the future MCI aspirants.

PP’s PREPARATION

Well,
My prep goes this way…..
First be acclimatized by my history: – I have been studying all the standard books and have finished them atleast 2 times (except – Panniker Micro) ha ha …..
My specific prep for the MCI cum USMLE started from 5th year….
FIRST THING WE DID – Make a study group (My study group has 100 % result) Astonishing ain’t it ???
Well, My study group rocked from the day we made it and it has proved to be very very effective.

FIFTH YEAR: – We finished HARRISON in medicine – ONLY THE IMPORTANT SECTIONS I.E. GIT, COLLAGEN, KIDNEY, HEART, ENDOCRINE . This was not the first time we were reading HARI ! It was actually we had done it in 4th year during our classes and this was the time for revision, group discussion and also for doing the undone things.

We did LOVE and BAILEY – Started from KIDNEYS, then GIT, then ARTERIES VEINS and the THORAX and ENDOCRINE. Same schedule, discussion plus MCQs.

We did CHAUDHARY – Physiology – Actually this is the subject that is discriminated the most in the med schools of the Russian federation and it was high time to understand that in order to get the concepts straight into the Cortex was the EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE of Physio….. As we were doin this for the first time, we selected simple book like chaudhary so that we can get the complete insight of the subject.

(P.S. – The above mentioned schedule was run in hand with the routine classes and also we did the routine work too along with this, you can imagine the amount of fun and enjoyment we had to sacrifice for this)

SIXTH YEAR –
We started the new year by ripping the pages of GHAI (Pedia)
Finished all the sections especially those considered important – the only thing we did not do is the GIT and CARDIO and KIDNEY section (because it is already covered in the HARRI) Pedia specific things can be learnt from the MCQ books.

Next thing we did was PHARMA the TERRIBLE –
We got hold of KDT for pharma – Me and my friends had already done pharma from KDT in 3rd year but revision was the main thing for this subject to make it palatable…. Lolz…..
It was a mission of 5 weeks and we accomplished in 5 weeks + 3 Days. All KDT and MCQs from GOBIND RAI book of MCQ s with explanations, actually the new drugs in that book are quite nice.

JANUARY WAS THE AFMG COACHING IN RUSSIA – Completed the following from the notes
OBS GYNAE – The most read subject and we were doing this like 4th or 5th time
MICROBIO – Had read panniker in 3rd yr, but VIKAS SIR’s Notes made it damn easy.
PHARMA – The pharma wizard Dr. Vikas Dhikav made impact straight to the CORTEX. Actually my planning was a double advantage one, as we did pharma second time from KDT a fortnight earlier, reading DHIKAV’s notes was a cake walk and was quite easy to refine the concepts.
FORENSIC – just a matter of hours after the notes.

NOW WAS A 15 day TIME BREAK FROM THE GROUP DISCUSSION where we were going to do DERMATOLOGY by self reading.
My colleagues did it from HARRI’s skin section. I preferred CMDT 2008. and then we solved MCQs from ACROSS explanation. Too concise but worth donating time.

BACK CAME THE GROUP DISCUSSION –
Started GANONG PHYSIOLOGY – I have no words to describe this wonderfully written book. Really, GUYTON is nuts (I have done CNS and CVS from GUYTON earlier) but the clinical correlation and the sweet text was nice. I recommend this book A MUST for all MCI plus MLE aspirants. (About 20 questions that I found in 2008 MCI were concepts tested from this GANONG)
Also we watched KAPLAN PHYSIOLOGY LECTURES From DVDs. To get an extra edge over the concepts.
PLUS SIDE BY SIDE my colleagues did subjects like RADIO, ORTHO and ENT but I was busy in the political matters of the college and the preparation for the CONVOCATION CEREMONY and so missed the last 2 months of studies (was not distressful, I knew I would cover that later).

SPARED SOME TIME FOR BIOCHEMISTRY – Did KAPLAN lectures totally…. Excellent, I think no one in the world can teach biochemistry the way KAPLAN ppl do…. A MUST SEE TO MASTER BIOCHEMISTRY.

And then came GOS EXAM, CONVOCATION, became doctors and back we came to INDIA and then DELHI where we sharpened the concepts and knowledge from coaching classes.

CONCLUSION – To get the MCI cracked in the first shot the preparation should be like us. (Atleast I think that way) don’t know what others think. If you have not done uptill now and wanna do it, WORK HARD, miracles do happen if you work…..
COACHING is not COMPULSORY but NECESSARY to ORIENT yourselves especially you are blank. It ALWAYS GIVES CONFIDENCE and INSPIRATION plus the ATMOSPHERE Of COMPETITIVENESS which you cannot get home. But mind one thing – It is not a guarantee to pass the exam 100 percent, but it surely INCREASES YOUR CHANCES if you are NUTS. There are some ppl who do not need coaching yet they join inorder to be with friends and continue with group discussion…. (ha ha …. Those whom I refer have got my point)
P.S. – Anatomy, Radiology, Opthalmo- AFMG notes, Pathology – GOLJAN AUDIO (USMLE STUFF)
Had done ROBBINS in 3rd year, overviewed and revised with GOLJAN PATHO LECTURES.
