What is the best way to study medical books?

Pick up any book. Any book at all.

Before plunging in, try to use this triple filter which I am presenting next.

  1. Does this material help with better assessment and treatment of patients ?

  2. Does this book help me clear NEET PG or USMLE etc ?

  3. Does this book help me with university / professional MBBS exams?If it doesn't help any of the 3 causes mentioned above, then run away from that book and more importantly the people who advocate that book.
