Deturgesence= decrease in swelling; usually refers to water content in the cornea

None of my class knew what the hell this word was. The answer to the question was ENDOTHELIUM. Referring to: What layer of the cornea maintains the deturgesence of the cornea?

Thanks! :D

Also in a state of panic here, but very much looking forward to Wednesday afternoon! Then I can relax until approx. September 22. ^^;;

I keep hearing it's a very humbling exam, everyone thinks they failed, etc. But then I talk to a person who's like, "Oh, I thought I knew most of them." Heh. But it's comforting knowing that's the exception, not the rule (is it bad for me to think that??).

Anyway, let me return the well-wishes! Good luck! :luck:

And thanks for the tip, rpames. :)

Nice tip!! I don't think I would have got that one either... coming up to the 12 hours mark.. not that I'm counting... I just want it to be over. The worst part is that it's over 2 days.. just give me all 435 questions right now and then let me hit up a bar a few hours later!

So true! Just remember that if you don't know the answer to a question you should go with your intuition -- you all know a lot more than you think you do.

Good luck!!! :D

I'm glad I knew what that meant - I just read this :) haha
I've heard that you finish the first part and think...not so bad...then the second part...hmmm, that wasn't as great...and then the last day you think - OH MY GOSH!!! I just failed!!!

Sigh - not looking forward to the last :)

I've heard the three sections seem to switch as far as which one is relatively okay, which one is terrible, etc. So maybe the relatively okay one is tomorrow.

Let me dream :p ;)
