India Buying USMLE Books in India

Hi friends,
Where can I buy the books such as fa, kaplan lecture notes in mumbai,
I tried dialing few shops but no one receiving call. I was looking for new fa 2011 as that had good review or the 2010, and about kaplan right now I am willing to have any edition (but would prefer younger the brown one if can find one).also searching in the forums willing to sell their books but no success so far ,kindly help me on this, i already lost imp time for arranging money, also buying from amazon.com is it worthy for money n time for delivery.frankly i never had any purchase online so kind of very nervous about buying online and do they take debit cards, they have only mention credit card, finds hard getting one.

help me in any way as u can.

Arrow I recommend Amazon

Amazon.com delivers books in India accurately.
They have developed several centers in India, have a look here http://www.india.amazon.com/

They accept debit cards issued by Visa, MasterCard and others, for more information see this
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...=518224&#cards

The books that you are looking for are all available in Amazon.

Here's the links:
First Aid 2011
Kaplan Lecture Notes 2011

You can buy Kindle Books from Amazon
There are 100s of USMLE titles.
Kindle books can be read on your PC.

Also, as I mentioned above, Amazon does ship books to India but the problem is that it takes time and shipping rates are little bit high.

You can also try this website www.20north.com as they ship to India but they don't have all the USMLE titles.

Original Kaplan books are not available in India.. You will get them only if you join the Kaplan study program.. i think it costs around 80k.. one of my friends had joined last year..
As for me i bought the copied ones and they're just as good as the original but a whole lot cheaper

That's not true.. I've seen both the 2010 (green) & 2011 (brown) ones and they're the same.. Maybe they will change it according to what you said from next year onwards.. And they probably are trying to do that bcoz their videos are pathetic.. I've just watched only Fischer's topics & i don't intend to watch others as it's just a waste of time...

Well.. i don't listen to anyone for advice on how i should study.. My idea is simple.. If you can understand the concept through the books itself then why you need to watch the lectures? and neways i've seen most of them just read through the notes except Fischer who does teach new things during the lecture..

but hey that's what i feel

Thanks Vaibhav and Usmle2011 !!!



Anyway for Delhiites ...............Kaplan copies are availiable for damn cheap prices in Nai Sarak !!


Get down at Chawri bazar Metro station ,enter nai Sarak ....shop from 4080 i think are all book shops and they all sell kaplan step 1 copies


Print Quality : pdf files printed out, legible,clear and manageable ................But if u have serious migraine issue or long sighted probelms ...then stay away !!



Edition : here the shop are the ultimate frauds !!...they are still selling the 2009 [some books] and 2010 edition books !.....but compared to 2011 they are way better ....my advice bargain for the ''2011''

Careful : the fraud shop keepers will put out the 2011 print on top and sell it ,so dont get cheated or pay extra !!


Price : many shops ....so bargain like hell...................they will start with 2000 Rs [ <50 dollars ] for the whole set .. but i proved to them that its 2009 book and that other ''shop keepers '' arefiving for lesser price.........and got it for 1600 Rs !!!

So guys am sure u can get it for far cheaper than that ! so start with 1300 or 1500 ....!!

Default search nai sarak delhi n KEM in mumbai

hello everyone ,
if any one having any trouble in getting USMLE books i suggest try search at nai sarak/DBS in delhi, and around KEM/bhalani book shop in mumbai, these are few shops thats surely having whats u looking for at lower prise,they will surely give a good deal if ask in bulk so make a group and search those shops ,tho might not have the original shine but content n print that matter the most will be same,and save those bucks for some where else .
uSMLE costs very high and every cent saved counts.
i got mine from those shop n like to share with u .
thanks to vaibhav who help me with books.

Default Bought mine on eBay here ---

i got them for cheap for just 8k from this guy. Here's the link --

http://www.ebay.in/itm/131774352521?...84.m1555.l2649

I paid around 7900 after 8% discount - google for coupons .
Quality is great and books are laser printed , if you are unable to read low quality black and white xerox copies , i think this would be a great option.
