Recommended Reading

Knowledge is an essential prerequisite for successful practice of medicine.  Without this one would be lost.

Similarly, success at examinations depends on one having a sound knowledge base. This is the case for all examinations Final MBBS, MBChB, MRCP part 1, part 2, MRCP PACES, MD, DM, DNB, USMLE, PLAB etc.

Developing a sound knowledge base is similar to building a pyramid (See ACES for PACES chapter 1)

There are many methods of developing this knowledge base but one of the most important methods of acquiring this knowledge is by reading books.

I have set out my personal recommendations below:

Anatomy

This is an important subject and it is essential to have sound background knowledge of this

Last's Anatomy: Regional and Applied

Chummy S Sinnatamby

 

Physiology

Without knowledge of physiology it would be impossible to understand clinical medicine

Review of Medical Physiology 

By William F. M.D Ganong

 

Pathology

Use pathology to understand the evolution of clinical features of disease

Robbins Basic Pathology

By Vinay Kumar, Ramzi S. Cotran, and Stanley L. Robbins

 

Pharmacology

You need to know about the drugs you will use on patients

Clinical Pharmacology

By P.N. Bennett and Morris J. Brown

 

Medicine       

This refers to the synthesis of all the background knowledge that you have gained from the above

 Kumar and Clark  Clinical Medicine

By Parveen Kumar and Michael Clark

 

Revision

To consolidate knowledge that you have gained you must revise repeatedly. This is not possible using large textbooks. Short revision notes are essential. We have produced a set of revision notes specifically for this purpose. They have been designed specially to aid understanding of the subject and to facilitate memorising.
