Review of Pharmacology 9th Edition by Gobind Rai Garg and Sparsh Gupta has a series in pharmacology related medical books. This book is also known as CRG. Pharmacology is one of the most difficult and at the same time one of the most important subjects in various postgraduate entrance examinations. As we have experienced, most students who prepare for the postgraduate entrance exams are in a dilemma, whether they are pursuing an earlier education or retiring. Integrated study takes a lot of time and due to heavy textbooks, some important questions are likely to be lost. In a retrospective study, students answer frequently asked MCQs but new questions are not covered. We have tried to overcome the shortcomings of both methods while maintaining the advantages.
In this book (Review of Pharmacology 9th Edition) we have given a concise and enriched text in each chapter followed by MCQs from various postgraduate entrance examinations and other important questions likely to come. The text provides the advantage of antegrade study in a short span of time. After going through the book, it will be easier for the student to solve the questions of most recent examinations, which are given at the end of the book.
