Default How do they ask questions to test knowledge on Inguinal Hernias?

Just finished reviewing that section on Kaplan Anatomy. Its such a straight forward concept, and not much to know here. And its all logical.

Just wondering how they ask questions? (I haven't been through uworld yet)

Usually they will ask about direct or indirect hernias if they are nice

If not, they will ask what is medial to femoral A. etc.

lol the femoral vein?

so basically, all this anatomy stuff is pretty straight foward then? this is my second day only, and i've finished the kaplan gross anatomy section. i really didn't anticipate it to be so short!!

but now browsing through first aid, i see that there is not much gross anatomy at all, and what is there, is basically what was in the kaplan, which probably explains why that is short too.

i was afraid of anatomy, because its been 6 years since i did it, and i seriously have forgotten a lot of muscles/innervations which are not in kaplan!

Ya I sat in Kaplan class last year, and the Dr. just went over the thing that are important. I was thinking to do the videos of kaplan, but I don't have time. I had a lot of anatomy mistakes on my NMBE 11, Pretty much 75% of my mistakes are anatomy, But I noticed all of them are in uworld. I also looked up the CT scans of answers of NMBE online.

Don't wast your time on muscle innervation. Just do several blocks of Uworld on anatomy. Most of questions are the nerves of hand, foot, and CT scan or MRI of brain that you have to locate for Alzheimer's , huntington, etc. Oh and visual field!

I am 2nd year medical student, so I don't know if you are practicing physician in your country or not. Study smart.

Nuro anatomy is HUGE! spend more time on that, I think it is the half end of kaplan. I may try to make the time to watch them

Good luck.
