View Full Version : My Preparation Experience Of FCPS Part 1 Examination.

Hello EveryBody!

I cleared my FCPS Part 1 exam in October 2008. It has been quite a while since then. But now I feel like starting first thread at CPSP forum by posting my preparation experience.

Every body has different experiences about their exam preparation.
In my opinion one can clear it in a normal preparation of 3 to 4 months.
The books I used are

Kaplan Anatomy (1 reading)
Kaplan Physio(special emphasis on Renal and Endo Physiology ) (2 readings)
Goljan Patho (Selective Chapters and 1 reading)
High Yield Embryo 1st edition (40 to 50 pages edition) (cover to cover 2 to 3 readings)
Snell Review of Gross Anatomy (2 readings)
First Aid to USMLE Step 1 (Outstanding Book)
Pharma and Microbiology from First Aid. (More than enough)
80% of the Medicine paper is usually from 1st Aid.

I gave superficial readings on all the books above and did important additions from these books in the first aid.
i finished the superficial readings in the first month and did additions in First Aid.
In the last one and half month I had only first Aid as my study material.
I gave 10 to 12 readings of First Aid in the last month.

And last but not the least, I collected the past papers pool from the blogs on internet, solved them and memorized those questions by heart.
I memorized Murad by heart.

My advise is that collect the past papers pool , save them in ur computer and review them daily once or twice. So that in exams when u get the questions from that pool u can easily mark the right answer without any further thoughts.
So after first readings from the books, Keep ur emphasis on First Aid and the MCQs. Murad and the past papers. I had nearly 700 questions other than murad from the pool of FCPS.

I advise every one to Collect them, Solve them and memorize them all.
Giving 1 serious reading to the course, Memorizing First Aid, Murad and Past papers maximizes ur chances of succeeding in the exam.
And Most Important of them all, Pray, pray and pray a lot.

Keep ur fingers crossed.

Dear Dr. Raheel Baloch,

I cannot upload all 700 MCQs here. But If u really need them, u can give me your email address and I can send you the website link from where I downloaded all those questions.

Believe me you cram all those questions and you always have a good chance to clear the exam. Because there are many repeats in every FCPS exam from the past papers.

InshaAllah u will do well. For FCPS in Paeds, u have to take the exam in subject of medicine and allied. Yes Kaplan is enough for Medicine fcps exam. No FCPS paper is out of Kaplan.

dear frds !!!

OPTHALMOLOGY fcps-1 k liye koi specific books ya koi specif MCQs books ?

Naveed
08-31-2009, 04:28 PM
The Basic sciences course is same for all Part 1 examination. For Ophthalmology, give special emphasis on Anatomy, Physio and Pathology of the Eye ball. U can cover up all this from any good book. No specific books.

Ophthalmology exam is less competitive because less candidates apply for it. So if u do ur best, u have got every chance to clear it. Regarding the link of Past papers, past paper recalls are widely available now.

Just type "fcps past papers" in Google and u will get a list of many websites having past papers.

Recent news is that CPSP has asked all its fellows to come up with new questions as the pool of CPSP now has a big leak in it. They are trying to fill up the pool with new questions. But still u will find Murad and past papers quite handy.

Dr anam... Thanx for your thoughts and sorry for late reply as I have been a lot busy. CPSP these days does not rely on the old question pool they had. Although the pattern of part 1 questions is still the same and questionable sometimes but they have added a lot of new questions in their pool and they make sure that they don't give out questions from Murad and leaked out past papers. :)
