Preparaion for FCPS Part 1 By Dr Maryam Malik

FCPS Part 1 is so confusing Exam, there are so many questions which come in mind. There are Text Books available for different Exams, but here in FCPS Part 1 there are no Text Books mentioned in the course outline. So it is usually so much confusing to select the Books. In any exam proper selection of Books is the key to success. Without proper selection of Books you can not clear any Exam. So i thought to make an article so that my juniors who are starting their preparation of FCPS Part 1 can be benefited. Here are some books which many students usually ask their seniors. I am compiling it or you guys. Check them and select according to your own choice because what I believe every person is different and best in their own way 🙂

  1. assalmualaikum,
    Dear Maram, I am GP, I am planing to appear in FCPS part 1 exam, I did MBBS, cound you confirm me that I can also take help from above mentioned syllabus or the only dental doctor can get benifit from it for his preparation.

    1. You can follow this syllabus but you have to exclude dental subjects from it. You have to include your specialty in syllabus. One thing there is syllabus for Medicine as well,that can give you better idea. just search it in the search bar. thanks.
