    How in-depth should the review be?

    Title says it all! Looking to get opinions on how in-depth the review should be. AAMC recommends around 300-350 hours of review. For example: The concept of Gluconeogenesis, to what it extent would it need to be reviewed? Does understanding what it is and what it does suffice or does every...

    I'll be starting med school next fall. By the time I start, I will have had two years since undergrad. A lot of that undergrad knowledge is a bit fuzzy at this point. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with review material prior to starting med school so I don't feel behind when we...

    how do you take concise notes from the content review books?

    I'm 9 weeks from my MCAT and still doing Bio Content review...my note taking is taking an unholy amount of time. I was using the TPR book but thought it was far too detailed, so I bought the EK book. I use word to take the notes then transfer them to Anki for solidifying the content. I think my...

    Naplex September 2018

    Hi guys, SD helped me a lot when it came to studying advice prior to taking my NAPLEX exam. I thought I'd pay it forward and offer some studying advice based on my own experience. A little about me: I was an aggressively average student with a 3.1 gpa from a reputable pharmacy program. My...

    Peer Review Wait-Time

    I feel like I'm waiting for secondaries and IIs again waiting for a journal to peer review some papers I submitted. But I'm definitely not *leaves to check* checking it every 5 seconds, because *leaves to check* that would be crazy, right? For those of you who have done research, what's the...

    What fraction of time do you spend reviewing?

    There is constantly new information being added and yet its necessary to review old material. I find that as med school progresses, it gets more difficult to achieve balance since there is always more info added to the pile that needs to be reviewed. For example, I'm doing "Interpreting EKGs"...
