actually im just doing questions now. not really working so hard. i kinda took my time with step 2 ck KLN and MTB3 reading (like 10 months!!!!) due to internship (still going on). but in our hospital here they ask very detailed questions for our exams like RBBB and LBBB and when we don't know the answer its like we're dumb. here they dont study diseases that are rare like legionaires or RMSF or T.cruzi or acetaminophen poisoning (coz there's no testing for it) but then what they find daily they really go deep. its annoying really but kinda helps me.
things they go deep into are ESRD, SLE, HF, ACS (reading and ECG is a must here) DM (I n II), TB (my God TB is scary here) and ofcourse HIV-AIDS!!!!! but when we had a case of dumping syndrome, guess who was more excited with residents drawing a blank face?
so dont worry about RBBB or LBBB. the KLN directs us to what we should know. in america they would rather have us have more knowledge in general rather than these one or two things in great details (or so i think)
while the rest is a blur......
try this book for ECG (ECG made ridiculously simple)
