Self Assessment & Review of Short Subjects (Skin- Anaes-Radio-Psy-Ortho)
Dr. Vivek Jain, 6th Edition, JayPee Medical Publishers
In any PG Entrance examination in India, Five Clinical Short Subjects (Skin & STDs, Anaesthesia, Radiodiagnosis & Radiotherapy, Psychiatry, Orthopaedics) contribute around 35-45 MCQs (12-18 % of total paper) which easily play a big role in qualification of a candidate. Also without scoring higher in this part, it becomes impossible to achieve success in most important step of your life.
Importance of Short Subjects: These five subjects are considered BACKBONE of your preparation for any medical entrance examination in India. Besides being of scoring nature, their application in Medicine, Surgery, PSM, Pathology and other subjects make them vital-base to score good marks in para-clinical and clinical parts too. I may sound too harsh, but attempting PG Entrance examination without Short Subjects is invitation for a disastrous result.
Paucity of time: Each of the 5 subjects is comprehensive and major in itself (good enough for keeping specialised and super-specialised courses post-MBBS). Due to limited time during PG Entrance examination preparation, students are not able to devote a lot of time to theory of Short Subjects as they can do for major subjects of Medicine, Surgery, Gyn-Obs and PSM.
Unavailability of NBE-specific books: All books available in the market for Short Subjects are based on older examination pattern MCQs with high-difficulty-level questions and extremely detailed explanations. In contrast, Recent examinations have started focusing on concept-based basic questions only MOSTLY in form of short MCQs. So these books end up wasting crucial time of students.
Keeping this in mind, I have written this book considering a student’s invaluable time, requirements, and a result-oriented approach.
Each of the Short Subjects’ has been subdivided into sub-sections,
Theoretical concepts: Brief, concise yet comprehensive theory specifically arranged topic and sub-topic wise. Important points (previous NBE MCQs and potential MCQs) have been marked bold and asQ for easy filtering. Images have been integrated for comprehensive understanding.
Image based questions: Based on Recent Examinations
