    The only thing I'd do differently is to make it 7 weeks instead of 6 weeks and add a totally study-free break day every 6 days.

    I tend to have a "I have to f*** off" crisis every 5-6 days. It requires a lot of psychic energy to get over them.

    Funny, I kind of remember thinking this too at times during my review, especially after I took form 4, but after taking the step, I realize that I did make good use of my study time.

    I'd do a little more biostats and epidemiology. It seemed like I got pounded with it on my test and didnt feel comfortable with the amount of info I learned from the small section in FA.

    I'd have moved the test up a few days.

    Forget your regrets and worrying about what you could have done differently, try and get yourself in a positive mindset and pumped up for the next 2 days...you can't go back in time, so focus on something you can change!

    dude i am right there with you. I have my test in 3 days and I am already thinking about the day I will get my score and how I will look back at these days and regret that I didn't study harder.

    It sucks that we haven't taken the test and are already regretting sh1t. I know I am unprepared.

    I would not change a thing, except I would not have worried so much. (I only studied for 3 weeks, and for me that was perfect.)

    Stopped wasting so much damn time, but that wouldn't change anyway.

    I'm with you guys on this one. What I had planned out at the start of these 6wks certainly was not what actually took place.
