Was asked how I do posters for my office at home in prep for the MCAT physics, gen chem, orgo and biochem pieces.
Below is what I wrote on the Post-It Note, poster sized sheets in my office.
It's not like "memorizing" as it is seeing it daily just lets it all sink it.
From Amazon, I ordered this:
Here's the link to Amazon (cheaper here and I got 2 packs because ... well, because!)
Side note: if you do not currently support an organization via Amazon, please consider the Ryan Callahan Foundation which directly supports childhood cancer. He is a Tampa Bay Lightning player, currently on injured reserve, and he donates a lot of, if not all of, his time to fundraising for the kids.
To do this, just click the link when it asks you for a charity. It costs you NOTHING! But Amazon donates :) Win-Win...
Okay, so, you've got the stick-it poster page, and now what?
That's not my complete list but it is part of it. Any formula that I routinely miss something, or units that I'm unsure of went on these sheets. It will get better organized in the next month or so and consolidated down to a shorter list.
Also have the same thing for gen chem and orgo.
For biochem, I draw in a sketch book like this:
For biochem, I have all AA's along with the 3 and 1 letter abbreviations and associated charges at physiological pH, all metabolic pathways as listed in the AAMC MCAT guide (the 87 page thing).
Any questions, please drop me a comment. Here to help!
