BOOKS for NEET PG and AIIMS PG Preparation

Subject-Wise Books For PG Medical Entrance Exams Preparation

Best Book for Medical PG

It Is Always Confusing For Students Preparing For Post Graduate (PG) Medical Entrance Exams Like AIIMS PG, NEET-PG, JIPMER, PGIMER about Which Books To Use. These PG Medical Entrance Exams Are Based On Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), Classical Medical Textbooks are Not of Too Much Use. As MCQ Books are Needed for orientation to the exam pattern and also for quick revisions, Here we are mentioning Commonly Used MCQ books by medical students to crack these entrance exams.


1.Anatomy, Biochemistry & Physiology

ACROSS: A Complete Review of Short Subjects (Vol-2) has always been counted as the best book for pre-clinical subjects like Anatomy, Biochemistry & Physiology and is used by most students for many years.

Self Assessment & Review of Basic Subjects  
(Vol 1- Physiology & Biochemistry) by Arvind Arora
(Vol 2- Anatomy & Forensic Medicine) by Arvind Arora (Recommended) 
Arvind Arora new editions are the best books to prepare for any subjects. The feature I liked most about them is that it now gives notes (description-explanation) on every topic before starting of MCQs. This makes it a very good option for students who do not have time to go through textbooks. Also, notes given in these books are much better and effective to read when compared to Across. So I would recommend all students to read this book instead of classic Across. Also, these books are easier to revise compared to ACROSS.


2.Forensic Medicine & Toxicology

Forensic Medicine & Toxicology (FMT) is one of the easiest subjects in medical entrance exams with a lot of marks weightage.

ACROSS: A Complete Review of Short Subjects (Vol-2)
also has FMT section.

Self Assessment & Review Microbiology & Immunology by Rachana Chaurasia & Anshul Jain (Recommended)  
6.Short Subjects

This includes subjects like Dermatology, Psychiatry, ENT, Ophthalmology, Radiology & Radiotherapy, Orthopaedics & Anaesthesia. These subjects do not have any separate book and come in combined book with different subjects according to the publication house. So I am giving a few books names, some of which have already been mentioned in the above list.
Across: A Complete Review of Short Subjects Volume – 1, Dermatology (Skin and Venereal Diseases), Anaesthesia, Radiology & Radiotherapy, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics by Saumya Shukla, Anurag Shukla.
Self Assessment & Review Of Short Subject Vol 1, (Skin, Anaesthesia, Radiology, Psychiatry) by Arvind Arora  (Recommended)

Self Assessment and Review of Short Subjects Vol 2 (Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics & ENT) by Arvind Arora. (Recommended)

Self Assessment & Review ENT by Sakshi Arora.

7.Preventive & Social Medicine (PSM)

Counted as the most boring subject by students but is very very important as just by reading this subject many questions from Microbiology & Medicine can be answered.

Self Assessment and Review of Preventive & Social Medicine by Arvind Arora.  
Review of Preventive & Social Medicine (Including Bio-Statistics) by Vivek Jain. (Excellent book. Highly recommended)


Has many common topics with medicine.
Self Assessment and Review of Paediatrics by Arvind Arora (Recommended)

9. Obstetrics & Gynecology

Special emphasis should be given on Gynecology as it has less portion to cover compared to Obstetrics and has almost equal weightage. 

Self Assessment & Review Gynaecology by Sakshi Arora (Recommended)
Self Assessment & Review Obstetrics by Sakshi Arora (Recommended)

10. Surgery

This is one subject for which the answer varies on different textbooks and so in different MCQ books as treatment mode depends on surgeon’s knowledge and experience. So it is necessary to get the latest edition of the book to keep our knowledge up to date.

Surgery for PGMEE by Ashish Gupta & Amit Tripathi (Recommended)

11. Medicine

Most important subject in all PG medical entrance exams. Preparing for this subject properly would enhance knowledge of the student to answer questions from other subjects as well.

Medicine for PGMEE Vol 1 by Ashish Gupta & Amit Tripathi.  
Medicine for PGMEE Vol 2 by Ashish Gupta & Amit Tripathi.  
Self Assessment and Review Medicine by Mudit Khanna (Recommended)  

12. Other Books

A. Platinum Notes
Platinum Notes have 3 volumes, for preclinical sciences, Medical Sciences and Surgical Sciences. It gives a short version of the theory, so it can be considered by students who are short on time and want to cover many subjects from a single source. But still, I would recommend students to prefer subject wise books as they have much detailed description of all subjects and topics.

Platinum Notes – Preclinical Sciences Volume 1 by Ashfaq Ul Hassan
It includes subjects Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Forensic Medicine, Microbiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Social and Preventive Medicine.

Platinum Notes – Medical Sciences Volume 2 by Ashfaq Ul Hassan
It includes subjects Medicine, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Radiology.

Platinum Notes – Surgical Sciences Volume 3 by Ashfaq Ul Hassan
Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, ENT, and Anesthesiology.

This book includes all the subjects and gives a description in a point-wise manner.
