    Normal Lab Values

    Advertisements



    Hey,

    I was told by Kaplan to memorize all the normal lab values, do you guys know which values the USMLE uses? Because the sheet they gave me is split up into normal lab values and SI?

    Thanks

    "all normall lab values" to memorize that just seems silly. do the CBC/dif, UA, and lytes since most q's that use lab values will us those...the others will likely have few questions and you can look them up on the screen

    When I took the Kaplan Live lectures they told me to do that too....I thought it was a waste of brain space, and I'm gald I didn't. Just memorize the most used ones if you have to. I know I wasted some time looking some lab values up during the exam, but it wasn't that big of a deal because it takes only seconds to do that. But if you are still determined to memorize them, go through some questions on Qbank, and any lab values they make you know for the questions there, are probably going to be useful to memorize. Good luck.

    So for the USMLE do they use SI values?
