View Full Version : Difficulty Studying only class material for doing well on Minis

05-05-2014, 02:05 PM

I'm having difficulty learning/studying only class material and doing well (passing) on minis.

1. Can anyone offer any advice as to what resources they use for physio, anatomy, biochem (textbooks, kaplan books, brs..etc)?

2. And what kind of study schedule they have? (especially how many times you repeat/review the material.. as retention of the large amount of material is most difficult thing…for me at least)

For example, I found studying only Dr. G's neurophys lectures didn't seem enough for some of the lesion questions on mini. I feel the information was given in such an unorganized fashion.. like I need a book or something to learn it properly. (I'd like to say Dr. G though is one of best profs)

Also, I'm having difficulty having any feel on predicting what type of things they'll ask and what I should be studying/memorizing.

I really appreciate any help, words of advice from someone who's doing well and found how to retain huge amounts of info.

It all depends on YOU and how YOU learn. Best bet is read the text books for every class, use kaplan videos, TA sessions when you need help, Attend all lectures and do Qbanks.

Read notes made from LC multiple times & do questions = golden for mini

Study a lot. Do not memory dump after minis if you want to do well later
