After publishing the above-mentioned articles, we received too many emails asking for the study material for HAAD, DHA, MOH and DHCC license exams. Because the authorities have just provided a vague description of the paper which is JUST NOT ENOUGH when it comes to exam preparation. So, for making this clear, we contacted our alumnus, Dr. Yasir Ameer Baloch (currently working as a Physician-General Internal Medicine at Masafi Hospital, Ministry of Health & Prevention, Fujairah, UAE) for his assistance. And in addition, we also searched the web. And so, we have come across some seriously useful stuff that you can use for your preparation! 🙂
