  • Do LOTs of questions all year!
  • Review viscerosomatics and Chapman’s points!
  • Don’t choose more than 1 book. It’s better to know one book extremely well than use many. Use a q bank throughout the year to correlate with class. Throughout the year, you should be correlating First Aid or Kaplan with your classes and memorizing the info while you’re taking the class. Before every shelf exam, start taking 50 question practice tests (timed), based on the subject you’re taking, and review each practice test immediately afterwards. 3 months before boards: mix the questions and build 50, 100, 150, 200 question practice exams. Reviewing each exam. When you finish all the questions, review them again. Do 50 q blocks every other weekday, and a 200 q block on the weekend. Obviously, review within a day. Do not study biochem or pathology for comlex. Use first Aid for OMM.
