text books for 1st and 2nd year mbbs Hi,

I am Dr. Adil Ramzan: I have gone through the first and second year of the MBBS in study. Whenever I passed an exam and got promotion to next year i wondered which book to follow.

There are few books which are recommended by universities, these are authentic books and a student must follow them for reference. There are other shorter books. students love shorter books as they are less scary.

Anyhow i am mentioning authentic recommended books of first year MBBS: (I don’t remember the exact title of books, but i am mentioning the authors names.)
