    Books For 1st Year MBBS

    Assalam-o-Aleikum, I've just started my first year of M.B.B.S., My first Modular exam is at the end of the month and

    I really wanted to know if there are reliable books with tonnes of practice questions, I'm already struggling with the vast amount of information and I feel like I really need to test myself if all of it is still up there.

    And I also want to know whether the books I'm using are good or if I should get some other books I'm using
    1. Lippincott's illustrated Review's Biochemistry
    2. Lippincott's pharmacology,
    3. Gray's Anatomy for students,
    4. Guyton's Physiology,
    5. KLM's Embryology
    6. Laiq Hussain's Histology
    7. Wheater's a text and Atlas of Functional Histology
    8. Review of Microbiology and Immunology by Levinson
    9. Robbin's Basic Pathology

    Should I go for Harper's Biochemistry? What about KLM's Anatomy?
    More than anything I want to build good concepts.
    JazakAllah Khair! ^_^

    U have made the right choice but I would like to add a few books
    Go for klm anatomy and prefer greys anatomy for students it is much illustrative,I just love it.
    Katzung and trevors for pharmacology
    And if your syllabus includes metabolisms of cho,lipids and proteins then go for harpers too,this book is really good for understanding metabolisms.

    And yeah try to watch kaplan video lectures and dr.najeebs lectures and buy some mcq books like pretest
    And if you find microbiology a bit boring then consider the book named Microbiology Made Ridiculously Easy.
