hey treasure,
oh even i feel biochem is little boring may be becoz there are too many things to remember and more to imagine ( i meant no diagramatic representation like anator physio) it is like that, i dont knowmy speed is worse than a snail, i dont know may be it should get compensated coz v have started a bit early comparatively , wat r u studying, i mean the study materials, iam with kaplan

good luck

hi sharmila,
these days i am doing micro,immunology to be more precise.i think we should read slowly and nicely that should be our way of study as we have good time period for our exams and we should do everything in a very good manner.
ok bye.

but what i really wonder is whether it is really necessary to even start thinking of the exam which is to be taken as far as december! at the rate of enthusiasm you guys are showing, i guess you can either take it up in july itself.....i mean NBDE especially the part 1 isnt really worth all this....adding to it, the part 1 studies really suck! so may be i could say that you guys can really chill out now and start off in september-ish.....if you wanna take it up in december...

Hi sharmila,
I tried to log on to to the website but i could not get thro". Were u able to check it out?

And kajal kiran, I do not think dec is that far out? come on, preparing after september should effectively get us nowhere considering the amount of competition there is these days?

Also, maybe u have great speed & memory ... I am afraid I do not>....

Hey deepa,
U know what? my preparations are running really parallel to yours. I too gave one reading to Micro path except Immuno.... & currently I am doing dental anat & biochem. The reason I am doing these too simultaneously is that I find biochem tough so everytime I get saturated with it I read some dental anat.......

Sharmila, I might too take the Cbt in oct....
Have u thought of taking the toefl before or after part1??
Did u get the ECE evaluation done yet?

Bye, Keep studying....

hi sonal
welcome!! Join the gang!!!
I think no one knows too much about cbt just yet. I read in the ada site that it begins in april but the better version where u have flexibility of using the amount of time u want between the two sections in each session will be available by May of this year.

Also there are a couple of threads posted where the cbt has been discussed. U could read that too......

Bye, Good luck,
Treasure..........

hi treasure,
its good that u r doing the same subjects.now i have started with anat ,and after the micro,i am feeling a good change.may be that towards the end of anat i might be feeling the same thing as i felt towards the end of micro--monotony.
anyway atleast today i felt fresh with a new subject.
all the best.

hi sharmila,
thankz 4 the info.can u please tell us 1 deck a day of dental anat daily.
so that we get updated from the new decks.that ways even u will be able to retain each word of decks before the exam.
actually i have never studied the short cut way so i am doing texts more or less,i know that this much is not required but i can't help myself the other way.i am pretty sure that i am wasting my time but this is me.after doing the text ,i do the decks.
all the best to all of us.

if any body has another idea to how to know the diff b/w new and older version of decks ,using this forum,
please come forward and share,so that we all get benefitted.
cheers.
