    term 2 is going to start in a month. I probably can guess I should not pre study before, but is there anything I should look over to get familiar with for term 2? Thanks

    Physiology BRS. Some will say enjoy your break, but if you do want to read something, this is a great book.

    If you have some files from parasit then start memorizing.

    To be honest I would have had agreed with the posts above. However, since you have the same schedule that we did last semester I would suggest going over Immuno or Genetics.

    The first two weeks are devoted to only Parasit and CPM. (First two weeks are pretty easy.) After that you are taught Physio, Neuro, Immuno and Genetics together. You will have 4 exams in a week, Genetics and Immuno being on the same day with an hour break in the middle.

    The students in my term struggled with two exams on the same day. The averages for both subjects were low as well compared to other semesters. (By low I mean almost 10% Immuno midterm was 91-92% in Fall2011 and it was 82% for us.)

    I would suggest you study Immuno or Genetics over the break.

    term 2 parasit had at least 2 questions on chagas. also the year 1 practical had a picture of chagoma
    5th term nbme had at least 3 chagas dz questions.
    step 1 had at least 4
    our main ddx in the simulated surg case presentation was chagas

    chagas moving up the ladder.

    and to answer the op..... if you want to prestudy term 2 is all notes. grab a copy of the notes in the office. if the school has gone paperless then grab a pdf file somewhere. but if i had to do it all over again i'd say f it and relax.

    was in a cme class and echinococcus was mentioned and all i could think was "don't feed cysts to dogs"....info certainly sticks...

    Get the PPT file for parasite and memorize that mother!

    Although back in my day parasite and genetics were in the first 2 weeks of term with nothing else, so memorizing it beforehand now wouldn't give you much of an advantage over studying other subjects.

    Genetics would be a difficult one to prestudy for if they still switch instructors frequently. Focus could shift and there's so many advances that you don't want to study the wrong stuff.

    Parasit, as mentioned, is good if you're dead set on studying, and if you're a freakazoid like me, is one of the more enjoyable if revolting topics.

    I know don't feed cysts to dogs, but I also think fondly back to the three legged DDT donkey.
