    Ok Big Baller, by this time i'm sure you know where is your strength and where is your weaknesses. Med three is probably the hardest semester in basic sciences (hence if you survive it, you done with basic sciences... lol). A good approach to tackle Med 3 is to realize that Micro/Immuno is more high yield than Neuro. But in reality, you will spend 85% of you time studying for Neuro (because Dr. S like it that way).

    Split you time wisely between Micro and Neuro, but make sure you really learn micro very well (it will hunt you down if you don't). Make sure you do lots of questions (kaplan, exammaster, etc) because that will help you understand the reasoning behind micro questions.
    As for Med Psych, try to get you one of those Kaplan video because it breaks it down and makes it easy. That class is not hard to pass, so don't overkill yourself on it.

    Hope this helps

    Neuro - stick to the slides strictly, watch kaplan videos and read High Yield Neuro from day 1 (for the shelf mainly)
    Micro/Immuno - Kaplan videos + Kaplan Lecture notes is amazing (the 2010 videos)
    Med Psych + Ethics --> BRS and Kaplan Lecture Notes all day everyday

    Do questions, whatever you can get your hands on, Kaplan QBank is highly recommended, PreTest, ExamMaster, etc

    I have just completed it, Med3 is definitely tough but it is very do-able, key is to stick to one or two sources and do them throughout the semester instead of jumping on many different books.
