Warning! Darrow Yannet Diagrams

Kaplan Qbank is killing me with questions about Darrow Yannet Diagrams [you know those with solid and dashed rectangles about the ICF and ECF and osmolarity] however I did not see these in USMLE World or in First Aid!

If anybody has taken the test please tell if you have seen these diagrams in the real exam or not

How do you know that they show up in the exam if you haven't taken the exam yet
I mean yes they stress on them in Kaplan DVD but why are not there in any other qbank?

Do you mean that in your exam you got exactly the same solid dashed rectangles that we see in Kaplan notes, and qbank?

I doubt they would put the exact same diagram in the Exam but study it if you have the time the more questions you can get correct the better

I think the rectangles help one understand better the osmolarity vs ECF ICF.

For me, after understanding the rectangle, whenever I face an osmolarity question, the rectangles automatically pop in my head, and I can easily answer the question, in half the time as compared to before I used Kaplan's rectangle method to face osmolarity questions. Even goljan has these same boxes. I wouldnt be suprise if the boards have the same box.
