    Hello everyone,

    Preparing for my test day, I would like to know what information should be written on the marker board as soon as we get to the computer ?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I understand that you should definetly include the following:

    Odds Ratio
    Relative Risk
    Attributable Risk
    Absolute Risk Reduction
    Sensitivity
    Specificity
    Number Needed to Treat
    Half Life
    Volume of Distribution
    Clearance of drug
    Loading Dose
    Maintanance Dose


    Also would be usefull to write down a couple of interleukins, CD's and G-protein linked 2nd messenger as all of these tend to fairly tested material.

    Onwards!!!

    Hope this helps son

    Right, so for step one you will walk into the examn room with nothing but your clothes on, as you have to leave everything else outside the room and in a locker. On the examination you you will onle have the computer, a white board to write down stuff, a marker and finally some head phones to listen to media files. That is it!!

    Onwards!!

    Just anything that's HY that you're weak on (can't recall quickly). I wrote some stuff down but didn't use any of it. If you are weak in stats, writing down the 4x4 tables will be HY
