    i would say it would make sense to test your understanding rather than your memorization...since almost everyone can memorize to a certain extent. The more you try to understand what is being taught, the more interesting it gets. And your planning to be an MD some day, it would be absolutely necessary to actually understand whatever it is that you have learned in school.

    You can't say its memorization for all premed classes, and you can't say its understanding for all premed classes either, depending on the class and the teacher, you might have memorize more or understand more.

    Understanding is just a superior form of memorization. Yet in many cases much easier then memorization especially in science classes. Alot of times if you understand the material it cuts out alot of memorization. Saved me alot of time over the years, let me do much better on test, and made me much smarter.

    hope this helps a little

    You def cant just memorize the material. You have to understand it because the class exams that are being given are treated as if you were already in med.

    Its not easy and there is alot of information to cover in a very short time.
    And as the schools reputation and enrollment increases (as it is already) the cirricullum is getting harder and harder.

    the teachers here expect you to work extra hard and will have no sympathy on you. The hardest part is that most of your learning is done on your own.
    So make sure you know your study habits before all else and DO NOT get caught up in the hype of the island.
