For the beginner in Homoeopathy, looking at the maze of symptoms, different terminologies and dryness of expression doesn’t create much interest as it lacks basic understanding of how Materia Medica has evolved and also various terminologies used which are alien at first sight. After reading a few medicines, everything appears the same in all; it takes a lot of time to understand the basics. One needs a proper orientation and training to come out of this state so that the further journey becomes fascinating and exciting in its comprehension and application. It cannot be comprehended by reading a few books and a few authors! It needs an extensive study in depth and extent to understand the logic and concept of the different Masters. This will require an early introduction to the subject as well as continuous reading. Early introduction also will help in grasping the conceptual backgrounds with which different authors treat the subject and how this influences their writings.
