Books to be used to clear FCPS Part 1 on the First go

I cleared part 1 exam in first attempt with about 2 months hard study. The reviews below are my own opinion and any one’s opinion can differ from mine.


The best book is snell review regardless of which speciality you are appearing in. However, Kaplan + MCQs are also enough for those appearing in medicine.


The best book is BRS. First aid can also be used. Kaplan and pathoma are deficient. Goljan is too lengthy; use goljan as a reference.

Download BRS Pathology


BRS and kaplan are equally good. You can use any one.


Download BRS Physiology


Kaplan is the best. First aid is a good alternative but lacks concept.


For general, use high yield. For special, use either high yield if embryo is an important subject for your speciality, or first aid if embryo is not an important subject for your speciality.


First aid is enough.
