With the wide syllabus and tough competition, it is necessary to look at NEET PG Preparation tips to be among the high scorers of NEET PG 2019. Below are some preparation tips which have been recommended by the toppers of NEET PG-

  • Weightage

Prepare those subject & topics which carry maximum marks. Always give priority to the topics with the maximum weightage and then prepare for topics for less weightage.

  • Time-Table

When you know the topics of maximum weightage, you must make a time table and stick to it. Balancing the time between preparation and revision is the key to success. 1-2 weeks are sufficient for vast subject and 3-4 days for short subjects.

Note– Last 3 months should only be for revision and practice.


  • Make notes of important topics 

The basic but most important thing about preparation is making your own notes. Depending on books in the last 3 months is not a good approach. At this point, you need to prepare your own notes by selecting the important points.

Ambiguity is created among students regarding choice of books as no questions are repeated. So, sticking with the traditional method of going through previous years questions is not a good option. So I have tried to help by providing few books after so much of research.

  • Anatomy- Arvind Arora or ACROSS or Rajesh Kaushal
  • Physiology- Soumen
  • Biochemistry- Rebecca James
  • Pharmacology- Gobind Rai
  • Pathology- Sparsh Gupta or Devesh Mishra
  • Microbiology- Rachna Chaurasia
  • Forensic Medicine- ACROSS or Dr. Gaurav Aggarwal or Arvind Arora
  • Medicine- Deepak Marwah or Mudit Khanna
  • Surgery- Pritesh Singh or SRB
  • PSM- Vivek Jain
  • Obs and Gynae- Sakshi Arora
  • ENT- Manisha Budhiraja or Ruchi Rai
  • Ophthalmology- B Ram Gopal or Ruchi Rai
  • Pediatrics- Taruna Mehra
  • Orthopedics- Apurv Mehra
  • Dermatology- Profs By Vivek Jain
  • Anesthesia- Profs By Vivek Jain
  • Radiology- Sumit Seth or Profs By Vivek Jain
  • Psychiatry- Profs By Vivek Jain or Praveen Tripathi
  • Image-Based- PHOTON

It is suggested to stick with selected books because choosing different books may consume so much of time.
NEET PG preparation Tips

  • Revision

For any examination, revision is a must. You need to revise every single topic. No doubt NEET is a tough exam to crack, so you need to revise to cover all the topics which will increase your chances to get into the dream college.

  • Studying

You need to give 8-9 hours daily for the preparation of NEET PG. Going through the topics & preparing for it will take much time. Students have their own pattern of studying- some like to start with their strongest topics & some like to start with their weakest topics. What might work well for other, might not work for you.

  • Attempt online mock test

Most candidates do not know the online pattern of examination. So, it is very necessary to give online tests on a regular basis. Online mock tests are time-based which give you a glimpse of the actual exam atmosphere. When you do time bound practice, you do not commit silly mistakes.
