During my undergraduate days, I felt that textbooks should contain necessary information, not have too many details and should be understood easily, i.e. they should be comprehensive, clear and concise. Keeping this in mind, this book is written, especially for undergraduates and for those preparing for the PG entrance test. The entire concept of this book is to give information in as few words as possible without omitting necessary details.
Some topics (Identification, Injuries, Sexual Offences, Forensic Psychiatry and Toxicology) which are important from PG entrance point of view, are in more details. All topics are updated and recent advances/changes have been incorporated wherever needed.
Concise and lucid text (bullet's format), line-diagrams, boxes, tables, differentiations and flow charts given at appropriate places, are designed to make the book interesting to read, easy to comprehend, recollect and reproduce.
The information given in boxes is 'desirable to know', that a student may skip if there is shortage of time or if preparing for the professional examination. Rest of the information is 'must know', i.e. one should go through it definitely.
In Section Two (Toxicology), all the poisons are given in the same format throughout so that the student is able to understand and reproduce them during the examination. The section is up-to-date and some additional topics have been added for the PG entrance test.
Topic-wise MCQs are given at the end of most of the chapters. They are based on the recall of students who appeared in these exams, and will help the reader to get insight of that topic and prepare for the PG entrance. It will also make preparation for viva-voce easy and interesting for the student.
Appendices I and II give a list of important questions which the students should prepare for the Professional examination and are based on the latest MBBS curriculum prepared by Directorate General of Health Services and MCI. There are two categories-must know and desirable to know, the student may prepare according to the time he/she can devote to the subject.
It is my hope that this new book will find favorable response from medical students and also offer significant help to medical practitioners, in-service doctors and forensic scientists.
It has been my endeavor to keep the book error free; however there may be some typographical errors.
