You have almost 9 months for the next NEET PG 2018 exam. Many candidates have started planning for 2018 admission exams earlier on. Unfortunately, nine months is not good enough for a thorough preparation of all the subjects. You also likely to have 2 AIIMS and 2 DNB exams in this period. A wise approach to learning is not to achieve perfection but to guarantee incremental progress andquality learning for NEET PG 2018.
Selective Text Review for NEET PG 2018
If you have plans to reread the text one more time prior to your exam, consider yourself unrealistic. Picking out the key points with both clinical and academic perspective happens naturally during your first reading session. Highlighted text, specific notes, MCQ review notes, HYT notes, formulae etc will need to be examined prior to NEET PG 2018, if possible more than once. Focus is on clarity of information and refreshing memory. Assimilating in extreme detail is a wrong strategy.
NEET PG 2018: Risks of over-preparation
Over preparation palsy is a mental paralysis arising from excess drive to achieve perfect learning. There is no way anyone could anticipate the MCQs for your next NEET PG exam. There are challenges in creative application of your understanding of a medical topic in real exams. Flexible creative thinking cannot be developed by excess reading. It can be developed only by practice. Excess practice is good. Excess reading can cause paralysis. Hence come up with a manageable reading plan and attend as many mock exams as possible.
