but ill be posting my immuno flash cards at the end of the month and i have linked all diseases that i find is easily 'forgettable' for me. so maybe that'll help. but they may just as well ask any crazy question. i mean they cant go over the same question again and again. so they twist and turn and ask what we havent paid attention to i guess. (i dunno.. i havent done the exam so what would i know aye?)
