      forgetting boards, it's important to know this stuff if you want to be able to understand what studies and drug companies are BSing you and what aren't. So instead of worrying about how important it is, why don't you figure out which concepts you aren't getting and why you're not getting them. It shouldn't take more than half a day w/ the right mindset to understand this stuff. (Of course, w/ the wrong mindset, since it's math, it would take weeks and weeks to understand it. I also had a mental block on this sorta stuff last year).

      If you've got any questions on concepts, you can PM or IM me and I could try to help you with them. There aren't too many you need to know.
