Hey
Upper limbs are very important..the supply, innervation etc etc and most imp is brachial plexus.....they say u may get 1 or 2 questions on lower limbs but not everybody gets questions on it...so if u have time u can go through it but be thorough with upper limbs....hope this helps...

according to me every piece of information is important,,u can get questions from any corner,,,and limbs :eek: ,,u cannot afford to skip that,,,atleast one thorough reading of complete notes and repeated readings of decks should cover every topic,,

good luck

In the old exams I never even saw a question on the lower limbs. Ever! Either that it was so dang easy that I just skipped right on by. Even the upper limbs on the old exams. Easy! Nothing hard at all. Is it like this on the real exam? Please share your experiences of HOW MANY questions you had on both upper and lower limb together. Thanks.

lower limbs r not mentioned in the syllabus issued by ada although upper limbs are specifically mentioned. so if anyone can pls tell if lower limbs questions are there or not in the exams.

By"readings of decks should cover every topic,,", you mean cover every topic for anatomy? or all subjects?

actually according to me the whole kapaln review notes is important if u have lots of time to read then u should go for it,,and its like a good foundation for further studies with decks and q'papers,,but if u r good at basics,,u can directly go for decks and question papers,,,,i found it helpful coz i am not so good at anat and biochem :smuggrin: but still i dint get good score in those subjects :( ,,,

Thanks!! Actually you did quite good. I don't know I can get your score for my second time. after all it's been so long time since I graduated. I'll get a kaplan.
Keep up the good work. God will bless you for sure.

good luck
