Book Review: PG NEXT 2017 Supplement

Kalam Books has recently published ‘PG NEXT 2017 Supplement’, a much-awaited release after their highly acclaimed book ‘PG NEXT’ published last year for the NEET-PG aspirants. This book fills the void caused by a lack of a proper reference guide for PG aspirants after the new pattern of exam was implemented. Released at an optimum time of approximately three months before the exam, this book literally justifies its name – it takes your PG preparation to the NEXT level just before the exams when you are running short of time.

The approach of this book is very different from the other so-called guide books currently available in the market. It does not aim to overburden the student with lengthy and voluminous text. Instead it focuses on the core area – the development of concepts – through short discussion of questions asked in recent exams. While one starts reading the book, it soon casts an addictive spell on the reader; the discussion of one question prompts you to go to the next question. All the explanations have been written by respective subject experts. The book is handy and can be carried anywhere – in the library, classroom or wards. The font size and the page quality are good, making it a treat for the eyes.

The book contains more than 1600 MCQs arranged in subject-wise manner covering all the subjects of undergraduate medical curricula. The questions are arranged in subject-wise manner so that students who want to check their preparation in a particular subject can do so easily. The MCQs have been chosen carefully based on the latest NEET / AIPGMEE pattern, so as to acquaint the readers with the type of questions likely to be asked in the forthcoming NEET-PG exam.

Detailed explanatory answers have been provided for each and every MCQ asked in the question section. References from the latest editions of the standard textbooks have been provided for in-depth learning. Numerous tables, flow-charts, diagrams and mnemonics have been incorporated at appropriate places making the process of learning easy for students. Emphasis has been given on grasping the basic concept behind the questions instead of rote learning.

A cardinal feature of this book is the inclusion of 100-plus image based questions similar to what candidates have faced in the actual examination. With the introduction of image based questions in NEET –PG and also in AIIMS examinations, the preparation strategy has underwent a sea change. The few guide books available in the market are unreliable and often fall short of the students expectations. This book fills the void of a reliable book containing the latest NEET/DNB pattern questions, as it has been prepared by a group of experts who are renowned in their respective fields and are associated with mentoring medical PG aspirants for a long time, whose feedback have been incorporated in this book. In short, this is the ultimate indispensable tool for NEET-PG, which takes your preparation to the next level. The publishers have taken care to keep the book available on online e-commerce platforms so that students from remote locations can buy it easily.
