    nervous

    Nervous,

    First, you should not worry about potential failure unless it inspires you to study harder. Be happy that you got into a medical school and you now have the opportunity to obtain your md. If you are working and have free time , enjoy it! You will have some free time in medical school if you use your time wisely. You must keep up with studying, you can easily get behind the first week.
    If you are not working and are highly drivin to study before you go, I would casually!! read the biochemistry lipp. book. If you are good in biochem then you can start on the anatomy book (snell I think is the text).
    I felt that I didn't have enough time to read the guyton physiolgy book ,you will be taking it in 2 or 3rd semester. If you know your phsyiology it is easier to understand the pharm and pathology.
    ****A good idea from day one is to use the first aid usmle step 1 book and the kaplan books, read casually as you go through each semester. They may not you on a test but by the time you take your boards , you will be thanking me , trust on this one. ****
    By the way, I am in my 3rd year.
    Try your best.
    write again if needed.

    ....

    Dont worry. Its ok to be a little nervous about entering Medical school. Enjoy your Pre Med school time now with your family and friends. You'll miss it once you start your basic sciences. Getting the First Aid book is a good idea, but a lot of the terms in there and content wont look too familiar, as it pertains to stuff you're gonna pick up as a medical student and not really from undergrad stuff. Basically, feeling nervous and all is a typical reaction to entering students and that pretty much puts you on par with your fellow future 1st semester students.
