study method
my rough study schedule is
3 days each for the following: Gross Anat, Neuro, Histo, Embryo, Genetics, Behavioral main, Biostat/epidemiology (total 21 days)
15 days each for Micro/immuno, Biochem (total 30)
20 days each for Pharma and Physio
30 days for Patho
every week or 10 days Ill take a day off just to do questions on what has passed and look at FA

All of this followed by 60 days in the end for Uworld and First Aid/NBMEs etc

I want to use skype just for the microphone, i can use the phone if its a usa num or some other method as long as we have the same book
depending on how many times a week the other person is interested, to go over what ive learned/what theyve learned, 1 can give a summary and points as the other one follows in a book, or if its a difficult chapter can do questions and explanations and fix each others deficiencies, whatever works
