      @नीरज, मित्रा, हिंदीतून द्यायची आहे ते नक्कीच का? हिंदीतील टर्मिनोलोजी समजेल का ह्याचा आधी विचार करावा म्हणजे अभ्यास करताना आपण काय वाचतो त्याचा आर्थ समजायला हवा. अन्यथा मराठी व इंग्रजी स्टडी मटेरियल वाचून तयारी करावी. पुस्तकांची यादी ई-प्रोस्पेक्ट्स मध्ये उपलब्ध आहे: https://anilmd.wordpress.com/other/eprospectus/
