Hey guys, this is my first post so here goes. Roughly how much material do you guys have to cover in a day. In pages for example. All classes considered is it 100, 200, 250 etc. Thanks in advance for your replys.

It's hard to say in terms of pages because I hardly read the texts and mostly rely on the class notes and the power points. The notes usually have on average 6 to 7 pages per hour of lecture and we have 4 hours of lecture a day. So judge by that. Keep in mind that all the information is condensed in the notes. It will be overwhelming at the beginning but the biggest thing you learn first year is how to absorb large quantities of information in a short period of time.

For our biochem class the notes they handed out averaged 10 pages per 1 hour lecture, and we usually had around 2-3 lectures per day. So if you only read the notes that's not too bad, but the recommended readings out of the textbooks averaged to about 30-40 pages per lecture.

This is in addition to whatever physiology had in store for us that day. Speaking of which, took my physio final today...DONE! wheeee! Now that pesky biochem this friday...
