    MD 5 Carbondale Quizes

    Advertisements



    Hello, I just started MD5 in Carbondale and I am at a loss with the quizzes. I have been studying all the material from studywindsor website but when I go to write the quiz, there are questions that weren't on the slides, Win cases or win pearls.

    Is there a better way to study for these quizzes so that I can do better in them?

    the quizzes don't really count for anything. they say you can only miss 5 before you get penalized, but the truth is you can miss all the quizzes and make them up at the end of the semester. the carbondale admin doesn't tell the island admin, but they allow you to make them up at the end.

    plenty of students spend a day making up all their quizzes at the end.

    honestly you should just get up at your own time and study from sun up to sun down. the quiz grades don't count and neither does the attendance.

    do however attend every H and p class. those are imperative. you can not miss more than one, maybe two of those.

    but again the only grades that count are the final hp exam and then the nbme you write at the end. you need hp attendance to take the hp exam, but that is it. there is no grade assigned to it.

    so dont waste your time logging in to read winpearls or wincases. they are not step-style questions even. stick to your own regiment.

    Dont stress out over the quizzes. We learned early on that the schedule online does not match the quiz schedule and its not worth your time to study the slides. Like the person above said, these arent USMLE style questions. Most of the time they have a case and have a totally unrelated question following it. Some of the questions dont even make sense and a few others have wrong answers. Just stick to your own schedule and use whatever you learn during that time to answer the questions.

    Pass your H&P exam first, then gloat.

    If the past two semesters are any indication, "Dr. R" is not teaching you material that will be on the exam.

    Hope you pass.

    I'm just warning you to be careful. There is no way your H&P class is that great when it's being taught in a room in a motel. A live patient would be a good start and maybe in a hospital setting would be better.

    Good luck.
