    Hi Friends,
    I think the toughest part of taking NBDE-1 is to stay motivated.So I am staring a new thread for myself and all those who have trouble concentrating for long periods of time.I am taking part 1 in Jun-July and hope to be able to work hard and do well in the exam.Best of luck to all of us preparing.

    I have completed most of the material once but with breaks in between so am not confident about remembering.But yes have a little bit of basic knowledge.Before I was working so could not study regularly.Now am trying to concentrate.

    -before entering the liver.

    hi,

    It is formed by the union of the

    * splenic vein and
    * superior mesenteric vein

    and divides into a right and a left branch before entering the liver.

    Note that the portal vein drains blood into the liver, not from the liver. The blood entering the liver from the portal vein, after being cleaned by the liver, flows into the inferior vena cava via the hepatic veins. The inferior mesenteric vein usually does not directly connects to the hepatic portal vein; it drains into the splenic vein.

    hope u understand.

    I'm glad to have found this too. I'm shooting for mid-July to take the test. By this weekend I hope to have finished my first review of Anatomy and Biochem/Phys. I went through anatomy first and was feeling like "anatomy master of the universe", only to go through biochem and feel like I've forgotten all of anatomy. My plan is to get through Micro/Path in the next 2-3 weeks and then pull it all together and take old exams (use study breaks to review Dental Anatomy because I haven't done it yet). I'm kind of nervous about my strategy because I feel like as soon as I review one thing, I forget the others. I could easily put this off until September, but I'm so sick of dental school dominating my life and I'm feeling burnt out; besides, I'd love to be able to go to the beach and workout and just enjoy an awesome summer. My main hesitation is the whole score conversion controversy. I think they are going to talk about it at my school soon, so hopefully I'll be able to make a more informed decision. I don't want to accidentally drink the dental school kool-aid on this issue though. I've been working hard to gear up to take it in July, but if I continue to have my doubts about the scoring, I may just wait until after they re-equilibrate in Sept/Oct. Anyone else with the same concerns?
