Hi all, I'm from the 73-79 batch of TVMC. I stumbled upon this group after a Yahoo search. Im curious to know if any of my batch mates are around here. I would like to be in touch. Its been a long time. I am living in Abu Dhabi for many years, working as Medical Consultant in an oil company. Good work Bruno. I visited your other sites also. My greetings and best wishes to the moderators. Gaspar.
Each one of you must have read the "Pre Test" (or "Pre Text") Series, where in Multiple Choice Questions are given along with Answers, References and Brief Explanations. Though there are Pretest Series for almost all subjects, the main drawback was that those questions were not oriented towards the Indian Exams like All India, AIIMS, JIPMER, CMC Vellore, PGI Chandigarh, UPSC and other State PG Exams.
To bridge the gap, Kalam Books have brought forward a series of books in 15 subjects from Anatomy to OG where in Questions that were previously asked in Indian Post Graduate (PG) Medical Entrance Exams are solved and the books give the answers, references from standard book, explanations, tables, mnemonics etc
