Exams

I had an anatomy exam today. By all rights, I should have failed, given the effort I've put into the subject, but managed to memorize 90% of what I needed to during the last three days. I overlooked a couple of subjects while studying, but overall had very few weak points. Basically, I managed to jump out of the fire...

...and into the frying pan. I have another exam tomorrow, and I've put even less effort into it than I did into anatomy. Good one!

I really let my hand ruin my flow, for the last six weeks. No more; this week I went back to my old ways. Next week: no going home before 1 a.m. at the earliest! I must have mastered the basics of cardio by next weekend. No movies except on weekends, or as special rewards for extra-intense extreme studying.

Okay, back to work. I have a Takashi Miike movie waiting to be watched post-exam.

Too late! What a disaster. About a quarter of the way through the exam, I thought I was going to get 100%. Then I hit the rheumatology section. Ouch.

My movie reward was so screwed up, yet again I couldn't believe what I was watching. It made 'Gozu' look like a Doris Day movie. What does it all mean?

Anyways, I bought one of the textbooks for cardio, and now I am going to go and start studying. :)

How can you do that??? I have to give myself minimum a week to study for an exam. Never 3 days, I would fall asleep after the 3rd question :-P And I wish I had your mental capacity. hmm Or maybe your exams are easy? hehe j/k

Good luck with cardio! I have it this winter :-D

All the second years told us this was the easiest exam of the year. Supposedly, they complained to admin last year that it was too easy...

Our courses are systems-based, so that's why they're easier to study for; they tend to be very focused.
