MRCPCH studying schedule

MRCPCH studying schedule:

Essential revision notes in pediatrics for the MRCPCH (by Mark Beattie - Mike champion)

The book contains 977 pages in 24 chapters;
chapters are between (65 & 20 pages each) each chapter covers single system,
So if studying 20 pages/day
book could be finished in 49 days, almost 2 months.

Is this possible ?? if you have a comment please add it.

about me I will start with Neonatology chapter.

Goodluck for all of you.

If anybody has names of good recommended books for studying or practicing please add it.

A big mistake

I read this just few days ago.
To study the phenomena of disease without books is to sail an uncharted sea, while to study books without patients is not to go to sea at all.” —Sir William Osler.

For long time I thought that buying books and having a vacation for long time (a year for example) to study it and do the exams is enough to be a good doctor.

But lately I discovered that I paid a lot of my critical age time for this wrong idea.

So please don't do the same mistake & study in parallel to work.
