Hi guys.. For some reason I am progressing so slowly in physiology... 1 chapter a day only (Not a section but a chapter) and I can barely master it, is that normal?? I am using Kaplan!!!

well i think if u r weak in ur basics then it will take long...most important thing is whats the point in doing faster if u cant understand the concepts...so dont worry about..and dont prepare in vacuum you surely need to speed up a little more...my advice is try to push urself a bit...and i think there are around 30 chapters in physio and if u cant speed up then make sure u dont have to look into the notes next time...the thing i want to make it clear is that u can take ur time but be a little more speedy and you have to master the concepts...so dont rush but at the same time dont study superficialy just to finish it earlier..

Kaplan is tough to digest. DIT feels like somebody is holding your hand through the First Aid review process.

I think your best bet would be to use Pathoma to help you REALLY understand pathology. I would use Picmonic for pharm and micro. Both of these resources really help you understand how the drugs, bugs, path works.
