I'm not sure what kind of situation you're in that you can only use books but RR biochem has some good questions that are online. RR path also comes with online questions. Definately have to second Robbins review. That's if you want to do questions for targeted learning

If you need a book cause you can't do a qbank then I'd say get the kaplan qbook and first aid q and a. That'll give you 2000 questions.

the thing is i just started to learn these subjects so i want to save the qbank and usmle world, but at the same time supplant a mcq book because no learning is actually successful if u have no feedback as to if ur gaining the knowledge and applying it or not.

Which is why i am trying to do mcq's similar to usmle with each subject.

but at the same time some books like appleton and lange- pharmacology are straight forward mcq question book with horrible explanation so i think it is a waste to do such books.


That is why i rather stick to doing one mcq book for each subject now but clear my concepts.
