It is the dream of every graduate to go for post graduation or grab the vacancy in some good organisation. But in this era of competition this is a herculean task and there is only the survival of fittest. When a student or scholar prepares for such competition he has to go through all the relevant texts. But due to lack of time and sometimes lack of all relevant texts the preparation becomes compromised. Students really have to toil hard and that too in proper direction, under proper guidance. They have to do thorough study of vast literature of Ayurveda and other relevant subjects. This book is an effort to enrich the scholars with the knowledge of 'Laghu-trayi' i.e. Madhav Nidana Bhava Prakasha and Sharangdhar Samhita. While preparing for such competitions these three texts are generally ignored or given less importance by the most of the students resulting in to failures or low ranks. This book is designed to provide a thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the whole contents of these very important treatises of Ayurveda. This is presented in the form of multiple choice questions along with exact references and simultaneously relevant references from 'Brih-irayi' as well. This will save the time and energy of the students. It also presents novel approach to research methodology and latest updates in Ayurvedic research, which is the need of the hour. This book can definitely prove to be the difference between selection and non-selection in the various competitive examinations and will be "An Extra-Edge".

Authors have put a lot of efforts to bring up this important collection. I congratulate them and wish that in future also they will continue their hard work and will come with more publications to enrich the Ayurvedic fraternity.


Ayurveda has a rich literature and a royal history. The term Ayurveda itself means the 'Veda of Ayu'- The text of life. Ayurveda is not only a medical science, it's a complete guide to live life in a healthier and happier way. We, the Ayurvedists have the responsibility to pass the legacy of rich heritage to the future generations. It becomes more meaningful to follow this beautiful science and incorporate its guidelines to live a stress free and disease free life in present stressful scenario. It is the era of specialisation but to be able to become a "specialist" in Ayurveda, we need to put a tremendous amount of hard work and strenuous brain storming during our preparation to clear the post-graduate entrance test. There are ample number of books to prepare for the competitive examination in the market. Majority of them covers the major subjects and its literature of Brihat-trya (the grand trio) of Ayurveda i.e. Charaka, Sushruta and Ashtanga (sangraha/hridaya). Some other books containing the multiple choice questions from Ayurveda along with few modern subjects are also available. But there are very few books which covers the literature of "Laghu-Trayi" i.e. madhav nidana, Sharangdhara samhita and Bhavprakasha. Therefore, we decided to compile a book which covers these very important topics which can give the students that "extra-edge" in this competitive era. It is becoming a trend now-a-days to incorporate the questions regarding latest researches in the field of Ayurveda and medical statistics, especially in competitive exams for teaching faculty and research officers. This can be clearly seen in various exams conducted in past 2-3 years. There is hardly any competitive exam book available which covers these topics along with ayurvedic literature.

This book has been designed by keeping all these things in mind and is an effort to give the readers an extra-advantage over their competitors (co-aspirants). It will be very beneficial to prepare for various P.G. Entrance tests, recruitments of medical officers, research officers and all faculty exams. It includes the elaborate literature in the field of Rog Nidan and vikrutivigyan, dravyaguna, ras-shastra, bhaishjyakalpna along with the advantage of exclusive topics in other subjects which are the contribution of these 3 Samhitas. This book give definite advantage of covering the questions from "latest ayurvedic research and medical statistics" to the readers.

We have put a lot of hard work and reviewed the literature thoroughly to give our readers that definite advantage which can cover the topics often ignored during preparation. We have tried to give references along with each question and also the relevant references of other major text books; where-ever possible. These references will help the students to do comparative analysis and assist them to remember the literature easily. This book contains the MCQ's (supported with exact references) from the texts of Madhav Nidan, Sharangdhara Samhita, Bhav-Prakash Samhita including the Nighantu part along with Medical research, Current affairs and latest Ayurvedic updates. We have put a sincere and dedicated effort and thus, firmly believe that this book will give the readers that "extra-edge" and help them in fulfilling their "quest for success" in various competitive examinations.
