    I'm starting med school this fall and have been out of school for a while. Do I need to re-learn any biology etc. before starting? thanks

    It might make things a bit easier but as we've discussed ad nauseum here - spend your last really free summer having fun. You will not be able to brush up enough to make it help significantly (as you will cover your undergrad semester's worth of bio in a few weeks) IMHO.

    Enjoy yourself.

    PS. This is rather ironic for me to be posting as I asked the same thing of my senior residents (ie, what books should I be reading to prepare myself, to refresh my surgical knowledge etc.) and enjoy yourself was the advice they gave me. [​IMG]
