In 2.5 weeks we have the final for our current block (musculoskeletal), and then 1 week later we have our year 1 cumulative exam. They've told us that it will focus largely on concepts, and when details are tested that they will be the "important" details. In the past they've been honest with us regarding exam contents, so I'm pretty sure they are now. Given that I have 1 week to prepare for this exam, what would be the best way to study? I'm kind of at a loss as to where/how to begin, and I know my memory isn't good enough to remember the majority of the concepts we learned towards the beginning of the year, so I definitely need to study. Our blocks this year were: core (a huge mishmash of hard science to get everyone on the same page - e.g. cell bio, biostats, biochem, physiology, immunology, bacteriology/virology, pharmacology, histology); hematology; neurosciences; and musculoskeletal. The subjects covered in each block were pathology, gross anatomy, microanatomy, pharmacology, physiology, psychology, microbio, and biochemistry. I know this is probably a hard question to answer, but I would really appreciate some advice. This exam counts for more than all of the finals we've taken for each block, so I'd like to do well. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.
