    I was talking with a friend of mine who is a first year at Columbia, she told me that the best thing I could do now to prep for first year in med school is to learn a few latin roots every day. She said knowing some of the ones relevant to medicine would be INCREDIBLY helpful when trying to memorize all the anatomy structures. I know that Columbia has a super intensive anatomy curriculum, so maybe its overkill since Im not going there, but I thought it was a good idea and something that would be usefull even for a non-medical person. Can anyone suggest any books or guides or resources????
    Thanks

    hey there :)

    No, it won't be overkill - it will be VERY helpful. I was studying with a first year at MCO and she was having a lot of trouble remembering words because it was like learning a language. Maybe a medical terminology book based on Latin roots would be good. I know it will make things a lot easier next year if that's under your belt.

    Talk to you soon!!! ;)

    Here's a website that might help:

    It's not medically-related or anything, but I hope it's useful.
