How to prepare for PLAB 1
In the Materials for PLAB 1 post, I discussed different material you can find on the internet or you can buy online.

Prepare for an exam actually depend on persons own strategies, the previous background of knowledge, determination and time management skills.

I will give here some sample way you can follow strategically for PLAB 1 exam:

Sample 1:

You can start to read any one of the book/notes to make a ground for your study: PLAB 1700 MCQs: Topic Wise by Dr. Khaled Saifullah Sir, Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine (10 edition), Samson notes for PLAB 1
Depend on how 1st you are you need 1-2 month to read the book/notes
Then you can start solving, 1700 question bank solved by Dr. Khaled Saifullah Sir, – If you can solve 100mcq/day then it will take only 17 days.
Do some Mock either on any online website/ old Mocks/1700 Question bank
You are good to go
Sample 2:

You can start with 1700 question bank solved by Dr. Khaled Saifullah Sir– target 50mcq/day it will take 34 days. or 100mcq/day will take 17 days.
Read again with more details explanation from any of above book/notes
Read again, this time solve 200mcq/day as a Mock it will take 9 days
Do some Mock either on any online website/ old Mocks/1700 Question bank
