I was told from at least a few upperclassmen that if you know first aid and desavarese you can break top 20% on the comlex. But knowing in this case refers to memorizing to the point of verbatim. Of course they also said doing q bank questions is a plus. But according to them nothing else is required. What is everyones feelings about this?

A lot depends on how well you did and how well you understood the stuff from the 1st two years. Honestly, I didn't think a whole lot was on my exam from First Aid. I took USMLE too so I had to go through it anyway, but many of my peers and I didn't think FA was too helpful for COMLEX.

Yes, I'd really like to know what people thought was a good resource for COMLEX, because all this time I've been thinking FA was key for both tests. :confused:
