    Could anybody who has done Step I/ doing step I tell me:

    Do we need to know Muscarinic rreceptor type
    M1-M4, for eg M2 is in ht/ or where ever.

    Also anti arrhythmics class I A,B,C - IV, do they expect us to know the mech of action / eg for each type.

    Thanks

    I'm studying for an August teest like yourself. I wish I knew the answer to a thousand questions like that. I think of it like this:

    If it's in first aid: Yes, it's often tested.

    If it's in a review book: It's tested but to a varying degree. Obviously depending on the review book.

    If you remember it from class but haven't found it in a review book: LOW YIELD. FLush out your lobes or something.

    For cholinergic receptors, I have a really stupid mnemonic:

    Kick (qiq) at the gates

    The meaning is pretty obscure but it goes like this:

    M1 : G-protein q-type
    M2 : G-pritein 1-type
    M3 : G-protein q-type

    Nn
    Nm both ligand gated.

    So M1,2,3,Nn,Nm spell qiq 2xgate

    Gaad, that's a lame mnemonic. But once you get it in your head you'll remember forever.

    I think antiarrhythmics are worth looking at. Although I think they are really confusing.

    Just did webpath hematology questions today. Man, I got a 50%. I hate hematology. I don't get all those segs and bands and metas (wtf?) and what have you.

    Thanks for the above..

    Surprisingly I also scored very poorly on hamatology when I did path Q Bank, I am planning to re-revise haematology. With GIT Patholoy, it wasn't too bad, it was actually far better.

    Good like with yr studying..
