    1. Go to class and read the lecture handouts, many times questions come straight from there
    2. For test practice questions get the Guyton's review book (skinny question book it is in the library) and do those questions.
    3. When you are studying think actively for example in the cardio when you do the pressure volume loops think in terms of what condition would promote what kind of loop. Just think about what you are reading when you are reading it. What would happen if you block one area of the lung.
    4. You can read BRS (I skimmed over it and I did well both in class and in the shelf, I mainly relied on understanding the lecture material also the guyton's questions helped me a lot with learning).
    5. Go to office hours and ask what you don't understand, don't wait till the night before to study physio.

    guyton sucks. read costanzo and brs and do a lot of practice questions (kaplan, USMLEworld). class is an epic waste of time because they waste 3 weeks on EKGs and leads when there are 0 questions on the shelf. the only good prof is dr. w who teaches renal physio. you should avoid all lectures except his.

    here are dr. w's powerpoints with a ton of my notes in the notes tab.

    I would say the only good professor is Dr. N. She's awesome and did much for my physio grade.

    I actually didn't like Dr. N at all. I couldn't get the way she explained as she jumped around too much. During the whole class my favorite teacher was Dr. S

    and rahul I didn't say read big Guyton, I said do the review questions from the skinny thin Guyton ( I saw many questions on the shelf from the skinny Guyton).

    Realistically, if your taking the full load, its almost impossible to read Guyton. Physio is one of the worst taught subjects at AUA. Luckily, I had background in it, so I managed to get by with an ok grade. For those taking the full load id do the following:

    Go to class ( i know its a waste, but atleast you hear it once, and you get a feel for what the professor thinks is important). For understanding the actual material, use kaplan videos. The professor is really good for cardio, renal, endocrine and respiratory. If you learn everything that the kaplan video teaches you, then go and review the material again with brs, and are going to class everyday, that should be enough. Kaplan and BRS has good practice Questions. i did usmle world for the shelf, which was also helpful.

    Um if you have a lil extra time on your hand, then yea def read a text. From what I hear costanza is better, but again, I wouldnt know since i went straight to high yield understanding of important concepts.
