View Full Version : what is the best way to study for pharm

05-06-2007, 12:31 AM
i heard from a lot of people and even the kaplan folks, that first aid is all that you need.
how far is this true?

05-06-2007, 07:57 AM
read lippincott 4X, and use FA as last minute reviewing.

05-06-2007, 09:09 AM
yeah i went with wcb22's approach, i can't imagine using just FA for pharm

05-06-2007, 12:48 PM
I would not depend on FA for anything. It is an outline at best.

FA you CAN use it as your sole source if you have a good foundation in pharm. For the most part, USMLE will ask you fairly straightforward questions that will be heavy on contraindications. A part that FA does really well.

nice advices buddies...pharma is my toughest:(

07-29-2013, 02:16 PM
I used KISSPharm and found it to be the most effective program...it made me actually learn pharm and see patterns instead of just memorizing things. Good luck!

08-21-2013, 09:25 PM
For pharm I just used first aid. I felt like 85% of pharm was in FA and the stuff you wouldn't know like brand new drugs, you wont know anyway.

09-27-2013, 04:18 PM
Has anyone tried KISSPharm? If so, can you give some feedback on it? I liked the sample lecture they had online and they have a deal for lifetime acces for $110 so I'm thinking to buy it. Feedback is appreciated.

@newyork91, read my above post. i learned pharm with them and actually was able to answer questions in class too. i love it!

Kudos to Kiss Pharm, info well presented in a format that you will remember

12-09-2013, 11:41 PM
Alternatively the kaplan 2010 videos in Pharm with Dr Raymond are pretty good to. I used those when I was in Basic Science.

08-06-2014, 07:34 PM
I went to the Pass Program and used KISSPharm given by the program. You can purchase it for $120/ lifetime fee, but mine came with the program. My pharm bars shifted to the right in 2 weeks.... and I was the one failing pharm in medical school. If I can do it, so can you! all the best

Always practice the question pattern of the exam you are preparing for! More you practice the similar pattern more you tone yourself for the D-day.

You can also read some subjective questions and multiple choice questions for free on my pharmacology blog: MEDZEPAM.COM The Pharmacology assistant

All the best!
