The flashcards are pretty excellent (minus some tpyos). The initial signup is a bit confusing. You have to click on the Stethoscope on the top, and then you have to click on the "Try FREE" button, and THEN you finally get to see the cards

That said, they have broken everything nicely down into something called a "classroom", I guess they think it's similar to a real classroom, although I'm not sure what is the purpose behind members/moderators? Anyway definitely a great learning resource. Thanks for sharing!

What are you guys talking about !?!?!? There is no link. I also need help with step 1 flashcards for FA2014, because my exam is coming up and I do not have time to make these and I learn much better with something like flashcards than reading 129387192873 pages every day over and over and over.

Chrome, I tried posting here a few hours ago but it didn't show up. It's weird but the other post in here that listed to the website is missing too.

Google Enki Learning and you can get 10,000 first aid 2014 flashcards.

I've been using them for the last ~2 weeks or so to help with first aid. But USMLEWorld QBank is obviously the most important part of my day when studying.

Right now my daily study schedule is:
1. UW: 44Q when I wake up
2. FA 2014: Read 1 chapter
3. Enki Learning: test the FA 2014 chapter with flashcards on Enki Learning
4. UW: 44Q then review. Sometimes I do another 44Q if I'm not too tired.

Hope this helps!

When do you review the block you do in mornings?

And when you say 1 chapter,do you mean a topic? (like Cario, Gastro) or a subject (like Biochem, Pharm, Micro etc.)

Hey qirkergaard,

I always review a block after I finish it. I make sure to do UW blocks at the same time of day that I will be starting my exam, which is in the AM.

When I say 1 chapter I mean a chapter in First Aid unless it's a REALLY long one. Some sections are too long for one day such as neuro, micro, and biochem.

Studying for this much every day is tiring and sometimes I feel like I forget things. That's why I'm happy with Enki Learning because it tells me the % for how well I know each fact... my tendency otherwise is to say "oh yeah, I already know this" which is not a good thing to do.

Hope this helps.

The alternative to spending time studying is to spend time not studying. I don't know about you, but I can't just passively read a book like First Aid and absorb 100% of the material after looking at it once.

Personally, I think that enki learning has saved me a ton of time. I have no idea how long it would take me to make 10,000 flashcards... probably a few months... and they wouldn't be that good

I jst felt a need to reiterate what u said. I'd rather it was time consuming than miss out on any detail in FA by just passively reading it (even if there's a high level of understanding) Esp when ur going for a really good score...

Srrsly! Obviously u want to be smart with ur time, but if u want a good score u need to be willing to put in a lot of it.
