The Second Edition of the Book: “Community Medicine: Prep Manual for Undergraduates” by Dr. Rajvir Bhalwar, published by Elsevier Publication in April 2018, is an updated version of its first edition published in 2015.

The contents of the chapters are presented in long and short question and answer form with neatly drawn diagrams. At the end of each chapter, there are multiple-choice questions and viva-based questions along with answers and the complementary online student resources, in addition, provide valuable tips for model answers which no other book of this category has been providing. The chapter on biostatistics explains the various biostatistical terminologies and concepts in a very simple language. At the end of this chapter, there are 75 numericals and graph-based problems along with answer for the student to practice.

This book will benefit not only the undergraduate but also the postgraduate students of community medicine.

The author has summarized the entire syllabus of community medicine efficiently and effectively into 29 chapters. Moreover, a new Chapter 30, which gives a quick revision of definitions, important data, and “one-liners,” is a definite value addition in this second edition.

The language used is lucid, easy to be understood by the students. Concepts are explained to the point. At the same time, care has been taken that the reader gets a good grasp of the subject. The book also prepares the students for practical examination with the help of epidemiological exercises and medico-social case taking procedure and entomology.

The book has a new approach toward teaching and learning community medicine.

All in all, it is a student-friendly book trying and succeeding in its aim to make community medicine an interesting subject.

I strongly feel that this updated book is a “MUST HAVE” for all undergraduate and postgraduate medical students.
