    Neuro & Physio Tips

    Advertisements



    Hey Guys,

    I'm transferring to AUA as a 2nd semester. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how they navigated Neuro & Physio? Stick with notes or is their a particular book? Tutoring session?

    Just trying to get a feel for things. Thanks for any help!

    Neuro=Go to class with Dr G. He's actually writing the questions for the step now. And follow along using Matt's or Rahul's notes (just ask around, you'll find a copy)
    Physio=Dr S (not the dean, but the one from manipal) will have info packets he uploads to the S-drive. Use those and also physio BRS. Also Dr W (renal) will give you great info when he comes in for his week or so. Go to his classes.

    neuro: i'd also recommend following along in kaplan neuro notes (quite comprehensive and has great pics of the various tracts you'll need to learn) throughout the term, if you feel like you can't quite get the gist behind rahul's or matt's notes (both of which are fairly good, but does not excuse you from having to go to class - Dr. G WILL give you exam Qs that he'll only say in class). HY neuro is also great b/c it's got the CT/MRI pics

    physio: I agree w/ the above in that Dr. S's pdf notes are key for HIS exams. BRS physio is indeed good and summarizes well. Try to see if you can get your hands on Guyton's red problem set review book - that's also a good source for Qs.

    First aid and Dr S's packets/pdf files. His powerpoints were so confusing (he'd skip through 7 slides in a single minute..then spend 15 minutes on one slide). His first test will be really hard, but the second will be much easier. And he has a crazy grading scheme so somehow you'll wind up with an A or B when you think you've failed.

    3 weeks of insanity, ah well

    left the exam today feeling like it was smooth sailing, but one look at the posted answer sheet and it was like a bomb drop.
