I started this study blog last semester to help my own studying….and, it worked well for me. But, I started it in Block II (if you start at the bottom of the blog in the October posts), which leaves things a little bare for Block I.
BUT, if you can do the flashcards that are linked, and can youtube some videos, you’ll have a basic idea of what’s going on. And, if you can’t do those things, and are totally lost, get help….now…..stop reading…..email or FB for a tutor….seriously…. Don’t take this class twice if you can avoid it!
Dr. Van Oost’s “Summary Slides” are great…..meaning, you need to know that stuff, both for his exams and for the Step. For Block II, I reworked each of the Summary Slides as questions (and then answered them, if you need it). For Block I, it’s great practice to do the same. The genetics material this block is pretty basic…..when you get to Block IV you will look back and know it all backwards and forwards. But, be sure to know and understand the info on those first week slides! If you don’t get it now, see Dr. McIntosh or find a tutor.
As always, the previous semester tutor slides are gold…..there are actually a lot of practice questions in those folders for MCB I, as well as some great tutoring slides that are annotated and marked for high-yield info.
Good luck, hope this blog is helpful for you on your MCB I journey, and let me know if I can help.
