    How heavily are helminths tested on the board? I have done about 250 microbiology questions (qbook + usmleworld) and ran across TWO helminth questions....i feel its not very high yield and have a very superficial understanding of the growth cycles (which i find complicating)....i'm just memorizing the conditions associated with specific helminths listed in first aid (taenia solium = brain cysts seizures, etc.)...is this bad... can someone give me more input if i need to put more time into these....thank you!
