well I would suggest you to still have a look at kaplan micro...just open the same bacteria and give it a read after reading it through FA and add anything which you feel is extra into FA...so that after 1 read you can through away kaplan and keep revising your FA but a better FA with more info.

Actually Smiling at your post, am not the only one having sleep issue.
I woke up as well and ready with new day..

Will just study during study hours and enjoy when i am supposed to
Some nice tips to go through later
I feel like breaking stuff..

1. Take off your internet cnnection. maybe, give it to your friends or other family member, don't even keep it at your place, else you'll end up surfing again.

2. Start your studies with Kvideos... I always start with Dr Raymon or Dr Fischer. They try to keep your mind focused and let you start liking your horrifying med books.

3. always log on to this forum and see other peoples status on their way to this test.
people who have already achieved their goal- help you to get thier guidance on this journey and the others will inspire you as you know you are not the only one to feel scared!

4. Keep in touch with things happening in the world as I think we need to be a part of this world. some people say they just stay in their room and don't talk to friends and like that. i cannot do that. it makes me scared and more depressed, coz the fact is we need each other for support. but don't get involved in anything, just keep in touch!

5. Lastly, the MOST IMPORTANT- EVERYDAY think where you are right now, and where you want to go? You have a lot to do and very less time.. so, Arise, Awake, Stop not till the goal is reached!

I know I might have sounded like a philosopher here, although I myself have posted some posts here saying that I feel scared. But you know, thats how it works, we all should share and try to help each other.

I hope to find some friends online with whom I can share my feelings about this test. Just be true to each other! and we all can make it!
Good luck!
Hope, i could help you with something ! dont worry, you will be a great doctor!
