Dr V.K Chauhan, Principal B.R.Sur Homoeopathic Medical College, New Delhi is a renowned teacher and recipient of awards for his untiring work in the field of homeopathy. His book on "Principals and Practice of Homoeopathy" has already been a huge success.

"Solved Multiple Choice Questions for Homoeopathic Students" is a wholesome book for preparing for competitive examinations in Homeopathy like UPSC, PSC, MD Entrance, BHMS viva and other similar exams has long been awaited by the students. This book by Dr. Chauhan has been prepared to help the students crack the examination with minimum hassles.

This book contains about 3000 questions covers all the 12 subjects of BHMS syllabus. It also contains a section on guidelines for preparation for examinations along with a subject wise division of MCQs in U.P.S.C. from each subject. Dr. Chauhan has also paid special emphasis to types of Questions most frequently asked in examinations with a special note on the mistakes usually made by the students. Encompassing the whole of syllabus in a single book is an impossible tast but the author has taken full care to help the student in revising the full course.

We have had books giving the answers but the explanations of answers along with the extended information on the subject helps student to revise quickly. The Source and reference books of answers along with their chapter and page numbers add authenticity to the work.

 Along with it also contains chapter on various institutions and Organisation of Homeopathy viz CCH, CCRH, NIH etc; History of Homoeopathy in India which would prove useful for interviews.

The Subject wise distribution of Questions includes:

S.No

Since this is a first attempt many spelling, grammatical and reference mistakes are there which can be corrected in the subsequent editions. Some controversial questions such as: "Hahnemann is the father of Repertory; Boenninghausen’s Repertory is BBCR or BTPB" have not been clarified and the doubt still remains in the minds of students regarding the correct answer.

Inspite of being one of the first of its kind the book proves to be promising and we expect that in its forthcoming edition it would come out with more additions and knowledge.
