Physiology is one of the key theoretical subjects in medical examination. While it is a treat to dive deep into, involving yourself in the conceptual world of Guyton-Hall, Ganong and Costanzo, can become time-consuming swiftly.
Physiology is amongst the most important topics from the NEET MDS point of view. It forms the building blocks for some of the highest-scoring and significant subjects such as Oral Medicine, Pathology, and General medicine. The biggest hurdle that the students participating in NEET MDS are to find themselves alienated from the topics they took days to finish. The questions of which subject should be approached, when, and how generally float up during the preparation process. This article aims to highlight the preparation strategy that should be followed when you are preparing for the subject of Physiology.
Step 1 – Make a study plan
How many days should you dedicate to Physiology preparation?
A maximum of 10-11 days is the perfect duration for Physiology preparation. By giving less than 10 days, you might not be able to prepare all the topics effectively. You should study for at least 10 days using the action plan mentioned below as it will allow you to perform better in Physiology than most of your competitors.
After these 10 days, spending less than five minutes on 5-10 multiple choice questions daily will get you through Physiology much faster and in an efficient manner. One or at most two days of revision in the last month of the examination schedule will hold you in good stead!
Where to read Physiology from – Review books, Online videos, and Question Banks?
The second part of your study plan circles around you choosing to study from a review book or an app/online platform. Honestly, both options are fairly good as it depends on your personal choice and learning technique. You can also have a hybrid strategy where you read from the book, solve MCQs from the app and watch video talks for some of the more difficult and hard topics. At DBMCI, you get a great mix of the best available options with the latest material, regular tests, explanatory videos, and doubt clearance.
