    Is that a joke or a officially know nothing and revise old papers (pharmacology)

    Advertisements



    We learned nothing in pharmacology and pass everything with high grades. yes this is true....
    All we do is revise last 5 years of papers and we can pass. Is this a medical school ? Pharmacology the most important subject in USMLE and we learned nothing.

    I bet if no repeat questions are asked then not even 10% student can pass. .......

    Med school is roughly 20 percent learning from class and 80 percent learning on your own no matter what school you attend (and that's assuming you pay attention in class). If you choose to "revise" 5 years of papers then you're only shorting yourself. You could try this magical thing called actually studying the material, instead of studying the tests, and perhaps you'd have no problem passing "the most important subject" on the USMLE (not even a close assumption by a long shot).

    The step is the greatest equilizer. Trust us on that one. Study on your own and hard. Don't worry about others, they will be weeded out.

    Not all medical schools are like that. Its just the bad ones. Medical schools aren't supposed to give you past papers for you to review and on top of that fail to even change the questions. They shouldn't just be giving you a textbook and asking you to study yourself, they should be teaching. Either way, if your school isn't providing the teaching you desire, just study for the Step like SWOLL68 said, its the great equalizer.

    ^^ Not all med schools, sure. All Carib schools have some form of past questions that students use to cheat the system. Some claim they use these questions just as review before the exam, after they have studied, but I think most of it is **. Very few truly do this.

    Ross, SGU, AUC all have some sort of this practice going, even with NBMEs, which are recycled the way Windsor exams are.

    In case you guys don't know, two of the members in here, including OP, is a troll that comes every so often to litter the forum with rumors and gossip about students. They are posting these threads to create drama because they were held back by the school (they have something against the dean) and a month back they had a vendetta against a Hindu and a Muslim student dating each other (because it's totally their business, you know) and were out to tarnish their names and image.

    I say this because there are respected members in here that are treating this like a serious question/complaint by a well-meaning student, ******** that will be transferring to Atlantic real soon when they are slapped with too many retakes by the end of MD4.
