    I was wondering if doing the following review questions for surgery would be too many, I start my surgery rotation-8weeks next week and was not sure if I am overestimating how much time I will have to study. I have searched a number of threads and am planning on doing the following

    Text-Kaplan Notes, Surgical Recall, Lawerence as a reference only

    Questions- Pretest, Lange Case files, Plantium Vignettes, NMS Cases

    Thanks

      If you can get through all of that, my hat goes off to you. However, you're going to be working something like 10-14 hours a day, most of it on your feet in the OR, so you may not be able to get through all of that. My best suggestion is to make a schedule and try your best to stick to it because you're going to be exhausted when you get home most times.

      Also, personally, I did not find PreTest helpful for the shelf since it focuses more on how to perform a procedure, which will not be on the shelf. The shelf is more medicine in that they want you to know what the patient has and whether or not they need surgery, not what type of surgery they need. I've also heard that there are many mistakes.

      I hope this is somewhat helpful. Good luck to you.

        Thanks

        recall is good to keep in ur pocket and to read before a case

        case files is great but there aren't many questions in there

        surgery was one of my better shelfs mainly beause i took it after medicine.

        i did appleton & lange questions
