4th Yr: Special Pathology

Okay so in 4th year u can forget all the babysitting u have been so used in 3rd year... no longer will u be plagued by the tests every other 2 weeks...... the patho department just takes 4 tests the entire year ..and each test is huge enough to make you want to rip your hair out .... ..atleast 3 units are included in one test ...and no these are not the 40 paged ones u were used to in 3rd year.... i always ended up not being able to even go through the entire test syllabus... u might want to have a head start in studying patho before each test ... because this is the only time u ll get to study pathology in detail... i made medium robbins my basic text book because frankly big robbins gave me creeps every time i opened it up.... but there are those nerdier of us who made big robbins their basic text book .... it depends on u really... whichever u manage to retain is suitable for u.... most of the mcqs though ccome from big robbins... u might wanna consult JAYPEE for histological diagrams... learn the diagrams along as u go through morphologies of different structures.... for all those people who wana do steps goljan is a good book to go through at the end of ur basic book read... it has everything in it in a concise and orderly manner.... for the practical copies... i made mine at the very end of year ... its really ur choice whether u want to get it done with the weekly practicals which somehow i never managed to get done .......
