    I am so weak on preventive medicine even after reading Kaplan notes and secrets. What can I do to improve it?

    any suggestion is welcome

    ACP essentials has a good section on it.


    For Kaplan and FA/SU Unfortunately, the best way is to record that stuff as you go through individual sections.

    Colon Cancer screening is in the colorectal section

    Thyroid screening is in the endocrine section.

    etc.

    I went through the USPTSF..whatever...website a few days before the exam. I know that sounds crazy, but I was in the same boat and that ended up being my best section on the exam..go figure =P

    I looked up cancer screenings, HTN, DM, etc...anything that seemed pertinent.

    Hope it helps

    wow thats a good idea...i forgot about that book. It had a great section.

    Also, according to the step 1, i am pretty unethical...so what about for ethics?

    I take my exam on monday and i just refuse to study those sections...i want to study it once, for several hours, and never look at it again.
