Just curious, what would I pick on the real test and expect to get it right?...any inputs appreciated!
I will pick IM, because as UWorld explanation says, there is more vessels in muscle than subcutaneous space, making the absorption into the blood faster. Remember that even if you have the last edition of MTB, it has some months since it was released. UWorld keep reviewing and updating the questions constantly.
Wish me luck, my test is tomorrow
