Dear student,
I am glad to present you with Next Edition of Medicine Essence (M.Q.B.). All the chapters of this Book are based on 19th edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine and other standard textbooks of medicine. The vast subject of Medicine is given in a very simple and concise manner which is easy to understand and retain. A crisp approach has been adopted to write this book i.e. Book contains the content what you really need to read for your exam. No unnecessary content is there (Crisp approach). This book is sufficient to solve most of the MCQs of DNB-CET, NEET, AIIMS, PGI & State PG Exams. Another important feature of this book is that all Questions of the relevant topic have been incorporated in the same chapter with references. These notes are up to date and contain recent advances in the Medicine and contain information not given even in 19th edition of Harrison also!!!. There are some mistakes in Harrison also (See page no. 418, 535, 568)
I have taken special care to remove all the mistakes, but still if you come across any error please feel free to mail us. You would be acknowledged your contributions. Any Suggestion and comments are also welcome at I hope all our bright students would be benefited.
With Best Wishes.
