    hI guys,

    How much time are u left with? try to finish the materials asap ,dont try to remember in the first time ,just go through it atleast once. As u start revising it,u will remember the answers. or u can start with revision each day a little bit as u go through the fresh portions. :thumbup:

    Thanks Dhee,quite honestly I was going thru it as you had mentioned the first time & have started revising with no continuity though....yes it seems easier the second time, I just need to sort out & follow a routine.Thanks for the suggestion...any suggestion is welcome!

    It's true you get the feeling you've been doing the decks for a long long time when you are studying for the first time but don't worry about that.like i said in another thread..it's ok to feel that way (infact it's good lest you get too overconfident too :p :D ...he he..just kiddin')
    Don't try remember everything...just go through the stuff.It's all there in the mind.It just takes a little brushing up(thats why we do a revision right ;) ) well, i don't want to wander from your question..just finish the decks completely once before going in for a second reading.(i personally feel thats a right approach coz you get the satisfaction of having completed something...anyways, opinions vary too...find what's right for you).when the time comes, the right stuff will show through.
    I would also like to say that you and all those who get to the second round of revision will find it much comforting when you check your pace(you will be pretty fast).At this stage i suggest you use some page markers or stuff like that and mark those cards which you find something which
    you need looking through again.so, incase you don't find the time later you can just go through the cards that you marked.(so you can give more attention to the stuff you find tricky)...hope that helps.Good luck with your preparation... :thumbup:

    Hi Elementz,
    Thankyou for your valuable suggestion. :) ..sure enough the second time around the revision seems to move at a faster pace, though I took along time the first time & morever that is very encouraging :p when you have answered right.Just have to get the magic score :idea: :luck: , till then must keep the positive feeling going.Kindly keep all of us motivated with your suggestions.God bless you.

    Hi dent_ist,
    Thats a real fast reading of decks if i may say...wow! I wish i could be that fast.
    Anyways. don't panic :scared: ..that happens the first time you read anything...the stuff is all there in the head, it just needs some revisions and additions and brushing up.Don't worry you'll be fine( and with your pace you may even get to revise 3-4 times :) ).This is April...so cheer up :D you have time to go through and stress the topics you feel you are lagging in.
    Regarding the kaplan books...well, there are mixed opinions about this on this forum.In case you want an opinion from most of us on this forum you could check out the poll that meggs put up a while ago regarding whether it is useful or not.To give a personal opinion, well i had just 2 n 1/2 months to prepare and I didn't have time to go through all the kaplan material except for some biochem (coz' i felt i needed help in biochem) and some anatomy(abdomen and limbs) according to me they were pretty interesting( but time consuming :oops: ).
    I have heard quite a few people talk very highly about the little brown book of biochem.you may want to look it up if you find some time too...i haven't studied from it so can't say much about that :( .
    To sum it all i would say if you are thorough with decks and Qp's and touch it up with a little from kaplan...you are good to score 90+.(individual opinions vary ofcourse :p )
    Good luck with your efforts...and think positive. :thumbup:
    cheers,
    elementz

    Hi!
    well seems like you are done with atleast one reading of decks.Good! :)
    Are you doing the papers along with the second revision of decks side by side? :confused: That will help ease the stress of doing the papers :idea: (trust me it's real stressful when you are trying to pull out all the things from inside your head within a short timespan of 1 hr or so.) :p
    I didn't understand if you meant doing 1 paper(as in 1 subject) or one year papers(all subjects)..when you said it took you the whole day.If you mean all subjects then you are pretty much on the right track according to me :).
    If not then don't worry it's just the first time you are going through the papers so just try to take in as much input as possible.Like i said in another thread don't go by numbers go by quality..
    TIPS for a stress free study:
    ...try changing subjects if you feel you are spending too much time on one subject
    ...take frequent (small) breaks , listen to music etc.
    ...go out for a walk or a little excercise....helps make your mind more attentive.
    ...jot down points you don't know in a small book while you study or do the papers...(it will also be helpful on the last day before the exam so you can go through only those points so you have a quick brush up.)
    ... MOST IMP..(according to me :D )...eat and sleep well :sleep:
    and don't get disheartened if you couldn't finish something you thought you would within a specific time frame.Just tell yourself what else did you do that was important.


    and finally...........tell yourself every morning when you wake up.."I'm happy,confident and i'll do well"...try it, it's a form of self motivation.

    I am sure all you guys who are taking up their exams soon are all gonna do great! It's just a matter of having confidence and putting in that LITTLE EXTRA. :thumbup: .. Good luck to you all...

    Hi, Elementz,
    I have not yest completed a single reading yet!!!..To slow..yet to do Mico -patho..and anat..a little of it is left..!!!

    I try and study for atleast 5-6hrs a day too. ..I cant seem to do more than that- no point since no info really gets into my head ...after 5 hours...!!!! :confused:

    It is taking me more than 2-3 months to do decks and papers once, ! and it seems like i have taken so much time but I .... remember so little.~!!!!
    and what about theory? how much is too much?
    Kaplan Notes???
    We do need to revise! ..but the question is...is there enough time?!
    How about all of you????
    How long did u take for the first round?
    and how long does the revising take?
    thanks elementz for keeping all of us sane here ..your suggestions are really apprecaited..a lot!!!..... :)

    Dear Toothzone,

    first of all R-E-L-A-X...relax completely...don't pressurise yourself...just go by what you feel comfortable(hey i don't mean taking rest and not studying :D )...find the right balance....don't worry we have all been there and now i'm siitting here and giving you guys a suggestion...you'll be doing the same in a while too.. :D ...don't worry.If it gets too much close your books for one full day and see...the next day automatically you will get stuck to them.Try that coz you have time...
    Don't get discouraged when someone you know says they have completed reading 2-3 times or whatever...It's their pace...and everyone has a different style of reading.
    Don't you remember during exam time at college (i think everyone has passed through this phase)...you just feel blank and feel you don't remember a word :eek: !!! and when in the exam hall everything comes like out of a waterfall...its all there in the head the stuff comes out when the time is right...another tendency all of us have is to keep checking out our memory if its working or not by trying to remember something while studying and when we can't....well...P-A-N-I-C!!!! (Atleast i used to have that problem):eek: :eek: DON"T DO THAT....you will just end up wating time and worrying that you can't remember anything..
    Regarding the text stuff...do that only if you have any doubts...don't waste time pointlessly reading...decks and QP's give you direction.I found kaplan for biochem good...but didn't have time for anything else as i just had 2 n 1/2 months altogether...you have much more time...when i can do it so can everyone...isn't it?
    At times the mind is like a dustbin....you just dump info of all kinds into it and keep doing that.So, from the top all you can see is the unrelated stuff....an exam is like a big junkyard where all this info is spilled out!!! he he isn't that a weird metaphor I just used...ewwwwwwww ...what was i thinking!!! :laugh:.........
    don't worry you guys...when you are set out on a path there is definitely a destination...it's in your frame of mind how you want your destination to be(too philosophical...eh....enough dose Dent_ist & MEETLIFE???? :D ) so, think positive and keep a cool frame of mind....relax...thats the key! :thumbup: ...and if you feel down and low...what are we all at SDN there for??? :luck:



    P.s.:..I charge a considerable amount for my regular dose sessions...interested parties can get their dose by prior appointment only!!!! :laugh:

    hI Elementz,
    so good to hear from you.It is the stresss sometimes that kind of blurs our vision...today seems to be one of those days...people around you are so mean...With SDNers being the only exception...the weather is so dull with rain clouds all over, the pace is very slow...I know this too shall pass but for now I need some encouragement, not to be discouraged & keep going...coz I know I have it in me...but today I have no fight in me...help!
    Do put in a word or two every day on this forum to keep us focussed on the goal we have set to achieve...any other motivating advise is all also welcome from SDNers!

    Hai dent_ist,

    Relax..When u start studying frm kaplan it does consume time.When we make a time schedule..it seems easier but the actual studying does take lotza time.Even if it is time consuming,try to read it well the first time..
    Coz when u start doin the question papers,u may not know the corect answers but question n the choices seem familiar n u know where u've studied that ,,it'll be easier for u to refer.
    Also make a list of topics u wd like to study in that day,n go on scratching off[seems silly :D ,but i feel so happy doin that]as n when u finish it..u'll get a rythm n fel like finishing the remaining...hope this helps..
    all the best buddy :thumbup:

    Hiya all..This is how I am preparing..
    I read about 40 decks per day. I make sure that I stick to this speed and be thorough with the decks at the same time..
    The next day, before I start with the next 40, I go back and read though thr previous 40 to cement it better in my brains.. So far, i have just managed to finish 2 subjects..Started with physio/biochem..left with DA.. After reading the thread, I guess I should jump to 50 per day now...Doesn't feel good to know that I am amongst the minority who haven't finished decks even once :(

    Hi Ajay,
    you are really doing great....should get some inspiration from this time managemnt idea of urs :idea: :clap: .Don't worry buddy....if u continue this pace u'll 've enough time.....get going.Are u able to do decks and refering the texts simultaneously...!?If am in doubt I'll start referring n end up being stuck with hardly some 20 decks/day :mad:...not to forget my day dreaming/getting side tracked :oops:
    Hi Ann
    How'z ur preparation going...?I feel kaplan is good but really time consuming..sometimes it looks like there's no continuity..but we can do some selective reading I guess.
    hey dent_ist,
    ya even i felt kaplan is time consuming.....n also these decks look small but even they take so much of time for me :eek:
    Good Luck All you guys.......... :luck:

    Thanks for making me feel a lot better friends ;) But frankly speaking, I think I can do better than that. The problem is that I am addicted to Computer games and I am using my computer to study..I DID uninstall all the games a few days back..But ended up playing minesweeper :(
    I managed to finish 94 decks today...But just becoz I slogged like crazy for it....So if I add up tmorrow's revision, it means 46 decks/day! sounds too good to be true...just hope the petrol doesn't run out :)

    p.s reading this will surely scare a few people and motivate them I hope ;)

    Well Wiztooth, I am not using any books. I have this feeling that I am related to KARNA [of Mahabharatha fame ] I gave up all my books to my juniors thinking that I would join some management PG seat. I always wanted Ortho and I KNOW I cannot make it within the top 3 in CET. So it's just Decks for me. I have heard that decks are enough.

    p.s to guys...NO! Just becoz I am related to Karna doesn't mean that you get my girl :)

    I was wondering where did this thread disappear..Surprisingly, I didn't get a mail when this got updated. Probably, I didn't come back to this thread after the first mail or something....Anyway, am making a serious effort to be serious in atleast one post of mine

    Lemme share what I feel. I beg to differ Dhee and Elementz about trying to just finish it in one go. The main reason why we remember the answers when we go though the decks again coz we just read the right option in the answer section. So by the time you finish with all the decks and come back to the first one, you MIGHT remember the right choice..but not the reasoning behind it....Also, chances are after 1 month, you will feek as if you are starting afresh again

    It WILL save you a lot of time if you try to revise your previous days reading the following day like Dhee mentions..I say it becoz I am doing it. A person feels really confident when he knows the answer to a particular question even before looking at the options available.

    Trying to finish the decks as soon as possible will give you a mental satisfaction allright..But is that what you are looking for in the long run? Or knowing the answers WITH the reason why they ARE?

    So personally I suggest doing the decks thoroughly and making sure that you can virtually 'sing' it before you move on to the next.

    hey hey hey....I never said finish it in one go!!! :eek: :) ....I have time and again been repeating that it's the quality that matters not the quantity and by that I mean even if you just have the time to study once (with concentration) study well rather than study with a weak foundation again and again!!!... and that what we have studied is in the mind...but brushing is necessary!:D

    What I said is regarding the tendency to check ourselves like when you are studying Micro-path and suddenly your mind wanders and you think about something/some question in DA or Anat or Physio and then hurriedly try and remember everything and if u don't then....owwww! that's when we tend to get panicky!
    I agree with you when you say revisions are a must! but still stand on the ground that it's good to go through the decks once completely before we proceed to the papers (+ve boost to our confidence! :thumbup: ) and doing the papers side by side when we revise for the second time...then we are also in a position to analyse a question rather than blindly think about what the answer may be :p ...
    All the best y'all :thumbup: ...have confidence and keep cool! :)
