    Things I wish I brought with me.....

    Since there is a thread on things I wish I did not bring, 'thought it would be nice to start something optimistic! Anyone who have forgotten bringing something down and wish they did because it was invaluable, post it here.... It would at least give the ones coming down for the first time an idea on what things might be necessary for them!

    To start with... I wish I had brought down a bigger external hard drive, you can never have too much space (load up Kaplan videos, Pass, Goljan, Notes, study aides, back up all your files.....) Am bringing down at least a 500 GB...... Need to back up all the files just in case (crossing my fingers) something goes wrong with my pyuter... my notes and important stuff (my lifeline in medskool) does not get lost!

    If you have room in luggage, bring your own pillow too. The ones on the island leave quite a bit to be desired. Even a cheap wal-mart pillow is better than what you will get there.

    Hello everyone!

    honestly Med 1- Med 5 and all the study aides would be how many GBs? 500GBs? thats insane? Can someone please clarify this? Thanks!

    the 500 GB's right now are selling at a reasonable price. Above that they are still ridiculously expensive. Between the kaplan,pass, Goljan, lecture stuff, stud aides, other school stuff, 500 GB i think is enough.

    the movies, I'll keep 'em on a separate external drive. Playing those movies and MP3's will make your drive spin like crazy. Lessens the life span of the drive. I'm not risking losing my very important stuff.

    Am binging a book stand/holder. Keeps you from hunching over when you read.

    Well, I'm in Med1 right now. There's really a few issues here. How obsessive are you abotu getting all the "study aides" which are really just test reviews, Power Point summarizations/alterations...which you really should be making yourself as your way of viewing and reviewing the material. Why use someone else's "study aids". If you have to do that, you're kinda sunk to begin with. That's just how I work. There are some Kaplan books, etc. floating around which are helpful.

    On my pc, I have abotu 1.8 gig in which includes the whole Med 1 Anatomy and about 1/2 of each of Embryo, Histo, and all of EBM. Go figure. This also includes files and summaries I've made, a few kaplan books, notes, etc

    The external HD is for backups, in case your own computer's drive goes down. Then, at very worst scenario, you can take yoru hd to the library or a friends computer and access yoru stuff, or study, until your's is fixed.

    Each block (3 weeks) or each week, the teacher puts their Power Point lectures on for that week...or block, respectively. They do it differently at different times. So, you don't really even need a backup HD for that, or anything else.

    Hope that helps. It's really a personality issue. Those who spend all day going around finding teh hottest new notes and "aides", may be better spending their time creating their own, or ID'ing structures in the anatomy lab.

    PS. I'd get a "portable" drive, one that powers from teh computer. It seems a lot more convenient that how I have it, which is not that way...i have to create a desk space for it so I remember to backup regularly. Then again, it's not in my brief case or backpack getting banged around??

    PPS Someone already poured a cup of coffee in their laptop. Amazing thing, it didn't fry.

    PPS Dr. D loves to take role after the midway break. He's smart and funny. He's serious about role.

    Blessings
