    hi ssr...
    i really appreciate your idea... i am sure it is going to be a good source of motivation and ecouragement. Its been some time and we are out of touch of the basic sciences and certianly need motivation to get back and do them again...
    i am planning on taking exams by june... have just started reading.
    basically following kaplan, dental decks and old question papers.

    i am doing the anatomy, physiology and pathology of specific organ systems together... eg start with anatomy of GI tract, read its physiology and wind up with its patho... its easier to follow...

    right now my pace is slow and i take 2 days per system but will try and accelerate

    will keep you posted with the progress

    hello everyone... i like this thread .. it could be really motivating

    i have started 1 week ago .. i started with physiology . then just 3 days ago i decided to connect subjects together so i am studying the the GIT anatomy then gonna go to GIT physiology then the GIT pathology ( I know that is like bigtooth..strange chance)

    I am working as a dental Ast right now ( 4 days per week ) so i only have 3-4 hours per day and i have two whole days to study on them and i don't study Saturday ...i hope that i will be able to take the exam by August isa.

    Hi I understand how difficult it is to stay motivated.I think that is the most difficult part of this exam.Between work and studies there are days when I am too tired to study.Somedays I get bogged down by the fact that I am unable to devote enough time to studying.Somedays u dont want to look at another book.Those days are worst.But I try to make sure I study.I wonder if others have the same issue.

    hi venkatccp,from where we study is not important.all that matters is to have a clear concept.i find kp difficult cos iam very bad in basics,so i started following BRS.and i browsed kaplan later.so dont worry i know many people who got good scores with kp,decks and qp.
