Pediatric practical Books: Choosing wisely

By Ajay Agade
Wanted to write this since long but somehow I couldnt. So before I start let me clear I have no financial disclosures to reveal for any of these books and their publishers.

Market is full of books for clinical pediatrics and we need to wisely choose those which really will help us for practical exams and off-course our future practices, but I will keep the later aside as all these and many other books along with years of experience and guidance from our seniors will be required to make us ideal pediatric practitioner. So now for a while lets just focus on the pediatric practical exams. The goal is too obtain high yield in short time before exams in perticular.

The basic problem with us is a habbit of reading textbook and not reading Clinical books throughout the span of three years and then every clinical book at the end appears like foreigner to us, so try and avoid that! I couldn’t but you should. All books are excellent and none can be ever bad.
