Self Assessment & Review Gynecology – NEET continued in the year 2015, but yes, this time the anxiety of the students for NEET was less. Students looked more settled. The approach of NEET became a little clear. Image-based questions are still being asked.
Most of the questions are direct but require you to be well-versed with the theory. Reading important theory becomes absolutely essential, whether you do it from a textbook or from subjectwise help books, that’s your choice. It now gives me immense pleasure to share with you the new edition of the book. Many changes have been done in the book. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated. All new guidelines have also been incorporated.

Preface – Self Assessment & Review Gynecology
Dear Students, I wish to extend my thanks to all of you for your overwhelming response to all the 8 editions of my book and for making it the bestseller book on the subject. Thanks once again for the innumerable emails you have sent in appreciation of the book; a few of which I have got printed at the end of the book. I apologise to all those who have sent me mails of appreciation but due to paucity of space, I was unable to get them printed. Self Assessment & Review Gynecology
NEET continued in year 2015, but yes, this time the anxiety of the students for NEET was less. Students looked more settled. The approach of NEET became a little clear. Reading important theory becomes absolutely essential. Whether you do it from a textbook or from subjectwise help-books, that is your choice. It now gives me immense pleasure to share with you the new edition of the book. Many changes have been done in the book.
Each chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated. All new guidelines have also been incorporated. Salient Features of 9th Edition i Theory before all the chapters revised and updated. In the theory part, you will get all the information you are required to know as an intern or as an undergraduate student of Gynecology. ii. Use of a lot of pedagogical features makes learning easy and simple to reproduce during exams: (a) New tables have been added wherever necessary (b) Flowcharts have been used to add simplicity (c) Many new diagrams and real-time photographs have been added, for which I thank Shri Jitendar P Vij (Group Chairman), Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers for allowing me to use photographs and illustrations from eminent Obs. and Gyne. books of Jaypee publication. iii. Self Assessment & Review Gynecology
The section of difficult review questions has been merged with the main questions of AI, AIIMS and PGI, because if NEET will be held in the forthcoming years, it is no more important which question was asked in which state and which year; what is important is the Question itself. I have incorporated them in the main section so that you do not miss out on any of the important questions. iv New pattern questions (more than 200) with their explanations have been incorporated to give a fair idea to the students about how the new pattern would be. v. Image-based questions have been included in each chapter to give an idea to the students about this new pattern. vi. In the color plates, many new diagrams, HSGs and images of instruments have been included. This section has been created to help not only the undergraduate students for the preparation of their practical exams but also the PG aspirants for the image-based questions. vii. For the first time ever, annexures have been added for last-minute revisions. 1. Lining of female genital tract 2. Blood supply of genital tract 3. Lymphatic drainage of female genitalia 4. pH of vagina at different ages 5. Some important measurements 6. Male and female derivatives of embryonic urogenital structures 7.
Origin of female genital tract 8. Culture media and DOC of various organisms 9. Clinical features of genital ulcers 10. Types of hysterectomies and structures removed 11. Pearl index of contraceptives viii. All the references are from Shaw’s Gynecology 15th edition, Novak’s 15th edition, William’s Gynecology 1st and 2nd editions, Jeffcoates’ 8th edition, Leon Speroff’s 8th edition and Dutta’s Gynecology 6th edition. ix. Recent solved papers of AIIMS May/November 2015, PGI May 2015 and November 2014, with fully explained, referenced and authenticated answers are included at the end. I hope all of you will appreciate the changes and accept the book in this new format, like you have done for the previous editions.Self Assessment & Review Gynecology
