Recommended Books and Study Materials

Robbins & Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease will form the basis of your preparation.
For those interested in topping the exam, we strongly recommend getting familiar with key concepts in Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Rosen’s Breast Pathology, Heptinstall’s Pathology of the Kidney, Rosai and Ackerman’s Surgical Pathology, Williams Haematology and Wintrobe’s Clinical Haematology.
If reading all these NEET SS pathology books in a couple of months looks like an overwhelming task, divide your study schedule into small chunks and set targets for completing topics. One way to do this is to use the Pathology MCQ Bank for NEET SS and use the filter feature to solve MCQs one topic at a time.
