Become a student of Medicine first, then you can apply for as much Scholarships as you are eligible for.

PS: Medicine and Surgery is the course and MB;BS/MBChB/BMBS/MD is the degree you get afterwards.

Although am just also starting my pre clinicals but when I saw Straight and concise text then I couldn't help but to give you a few suggestions as I was also Stranded on this part.

So For Gross Anatomy, I recommend you start with Vishram Singh, For me I started by opening last Anatomy, and straight up I started disliking Anatomy as last Wasn't so explanatory As I had wanted, So I skipped it and went For Keith Moore, although this was a little bit friendly, It was so voluminous, and since you said you don't like volume, I won't push you there, but when I opened Vishram Singh textbook on Anatomy, I started seeing clear waters, so for Gross anatomy, with Extra concise and straight to the point, I'll recommend Vishram Singh. I although it's no Harm if you combine Vishram with Keith Moore, as Keith Moore got real cool Diagrams and Clinical correlation(Blue box).

For Physiology, Although sembuligam seems to Be the best pick for most of us due to the fact that's it's just bullet point without much history and all that, I'll still prefer You go with Guyton and hall because Guyton is So user friendly and Way more Explanatory.. I'll say u start with Guyton first then mayb later switch to sembuligam when preparing for MB...although i still find comprehensive physiology Sweet to my eyes. So once again I can do some combo here. Guyton x comprehensive or Sembuligam x comprehensive.

For BCH, Well I won't say much on this cause I haven't decided yet, I started with vasudevan as that is the most common in my school, But Essential Biochemistry by Naik seems to be more Explanatory to me than vasudevan, chattegea also Makes more sense to me than vasudevan, but the book has some so to say unessential details.. So for consiceness just go with Vasudevan ND make a combo by adding Lecture notes and Essential.

For Histo, Indebir Singh got my Vote here, although Junqueira Should be the best book for histo to me, but I just somehow like Indebir more because of its conciseness.. Am not sure Ave seen Vasudevan histo before, And wheaters Histo is also cool.. So for combo sake, just go with Indebir Singh ND Wheaters, but don't neglect Junqueira, that book got some good stuff..

PS: it's just my recommendation based on your requirements, It might not suit you like it is for me.. Actually the best way to select text is by Doing a quick experiment on them all to ascertain the one that suits you best, recommendation from a colleague sometime might not work.
thanks for your input bro... a senior gave me Ganong and I'm kinda enjoying it for physiology..

Donpre:

okay here are my recommendations
Anatomy: Read Gray's at first, then switch to vishram later on when you start understanding anatomy

Physiology: I would always recommend sembumlingam and Guyton combo for a start... later on for CVS, GIT and other systems, Linda Constanzo physiology(Simple, concise yet stuffy and easy to repeat multiple times). you can combine with Ganong for extra stuff
Sembumlingam is very useful when preparing for essay exams.

Biochemistry: Essentials by Naik, sometimes I play around with chatterjea and Vasudevan but Essentials remains my default

Histo: Junqueria, then BRS afterwards(BRS is 400pages of just bullet points, currently revising Histo with it and it's been just pure joy)

Embryo: vishram singh embryology

Las Las I would say you speak to senior colleagues in your school and hear what your lecturers use.
Also, my recommendations might not work for you, so experiment with those books yourself, you won't get past chapter 1 before saying "Hell no, this is not for me"

Good luck and Godspeed
thanks also.. Vishram Singh embryology, how many pages is it? you're in 300L right?

please do you think past questions have improve efficiency while studying for jamb, or should I just focus on the questions contained by lamlad

Past questions actually go a long way in helping you prepare and perform better at exams. One can actually simulate several exams before the actual exam with the aid of Past Papers.

Nevertheless, it's safe to assume past questions are not applicable when one doesn't have enough time to go through them thoroughly. It's all a race against time.

In the light of this would I advice that one focuses on understanding each topic thoroughly. If at all one would squeeze out time to use past questions I'd say one should concentrate more on those for Biology and English.

It's easier to go through those subjects; I think Biology has about 26 topics for the UTME. English on the other hand requires a lot more than the paltry topics featured in the syllabus.

As regards Chemistry and Physics just read books that would give you all you need for your arsenal, including detailed explanations and questions at the end of each topic/chapter/module.

If one can go through the UTME syllabus for Chemistry (17 Topics with special emphasis on Metals, Non-Metals and Organic Chemistry) and Physics (39, emphasis on all topics) twice and one last time for the purpose of revision, I have no doubt the individual would perform excellently.

I'd assume you are still in school. Since you are looking to do DE into Medicine, a lot of Nigerian Universities require a discharge certificate before considering you for admission, I think some don't, can't really tell. However, for most universities, they require your Discharge certificate.

In addition, you ought to at least have some Universities that are top on your priority list. Telling me to suggest doesn't really work for me. You list the ones you're interested in. There are tons of Doctors-in-training in here that are ready to answer your question(s) as regards the University of your choice and her modalities.
