Hey!

I was worried about drug ads and abstracts as well, but honestly, I don't think it's worth it.

I had 1 abstract and it was really hard. Learn what you can from the 2 abstracts on UW and leave it at that. The drug ads were really easy. Probably the easiest questions I had on the exam.

Bottom line: dont stress out about abstracts and drug ads. Abstracts are impossible to master in a short period of time and too low yield (I mean you will def have them, but what they can ask you is too broad to learn at this point) and drug ads are easy as long as you comprehend English (seriously).

Beautiful logic! As long as there are no more than 1-2 abstracts at real exam and they are really hard to master as you are saying!

I havent heard anyone have more than 2-3 abstracts (if you have more than 1 abstract, chances are that they will have 1-2 questions, rather than 3 questions per abstract). I also do not know of any good resources to learn biostats in a short period of time. I just took my chances with that. I hate biostats other than SN, SP, PPV and NPV. lol.
PS the biostats questions on my exam was relatively easy. I think I had about 10 biostats questions and only 2 were really hard. I had a ques on SN and one on PPV. I dont remember the rest. (incase anyone was wondering)
