SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
How did you study it if you have done your boards?
Do we have to read Quick Compendium cover to cover for that part?
Too much to read for me.. any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks! That's very helpful.Actually, yes I would recommend being very familiar with Quick Compendium. Also it would be high yield to look at the pictures/images from the early parts of Henry's, particularly the graphs. Know the captions to these pictures and the ones in the Chemistry chapters.
I wouldn't totally discount henry - the charts and images can be very relevant if you are looking for high yield stuff, just like the images in micro texts.
But Henry's is what, 1500pages with charts on every page? So there are some high yield charts among the 2000 or so that are In there. I didn't read Henry's, save some of the hb electrophoresis stuff, and that just intimidated me. I used the compendium, virtually memorized, and 0sler, however chem was probably my weakest subject. There are just some subjects that have no realistic strategy to make a strength.
I too used compendium and osier tapes as my sole study sources. I had gifted mp3s of osler lectures that I listened to for about 6-9 months whenever I would work out at the gym or jog. Some I listened to 4-5 times.
Then about 4-5 months before the exam I read clinical compendium 4 times and took notes twice, and when I said "read" it, I really read it, like total focus on in a quiet room.
It sounds painful but actually it was relatively painless and I am a cp diplomat at least for a few more years until I have to do it again.
