Yes, everyday.....there were many ups and downs along the way.

DAMS : How important you think was DAMS in your preparation ?
Dr.Mohit Agrawal: 
DAMS classes were the base on which I built my whole preparation...so immense gratitude. It was really a good decision to join DAMS.
DAMS: What do you think is the better way of preparation between selective, intensive study and wide, extensive study? What did you choose as your style of studying?
Dr.Mohit Agrawal:
Selective intensive study, with special focus on topics stressed upon in class and those that are repeated frequently.
DAMS: Indian PG entrances are highly competitive so to compete them students end up in appearing in multiple PG exams , kindly extend your views on this and also their pros and cons of appearing in multiple PG entrances .

I think multiple exams give you a better chance of excelling in at least one, because even with the same level of preparation you can never be sure as to what topics end up being asked in the final exam.

Dr.Mohit Agrawal:
I focussed on the short subjects and 1st year subjects because they are the most productive.

I attempted 180 questions...I left all those questions which I knew very little about.

Dr.Mohit Agrawal:
I want to take up Surgery, which hopefully I will get with my rank.

DAMS: Which teachers in DAMS influenced you most and what do you like about DAMS and would recommend to your juniors?
Dr.Mohit Agrawal: 
I would definitely recommend DAMS to all my juniors, it is not possible to single out a particular teacher as I thought all of them do a amazing job teaching their respective subjects.
