Don't know if this was directed at me or not, but I made book recc's in the FAQ thread.Originally posted by giznut12
What books to you recommend other than First Aid of course? I was thinking BRS Path and Physio and maybe a micro book.
I heard that last year's COMLEX was really big on the autonomics in addition to the psych drugs. I've also been warned about knowing the details of the drugs.Originally posted by Molly Maquire
For Comlex, you really need to know the psyc. drugs well (neuroleptics, benzos, SSRIs). The USMLE put more emphasis on autonomic drugs (epi, norepi, atropine, etc).
Are you freakin kidding me? I was told not to bother with parasites for USMLE because you might only get 1 or 2 questions on it tops. Do parasites make up a significant portion of COMLEX or just a couple questions? I would like to spend my time on the most high-yield topics.Originally posted by Molly Maquire
I was really surprised to see a number of COMLEX questions dealing with those bizarre parasites, especially after our Kaplan instructor told us not to worry about them. These questions invariably began with the phrase "A traveler returns from West Africa..." Be warned--don't blow these off.
