  • Mood:


Didn't write last night, as somehow I managed to spend just enough time playing Final Fantasy (damn that Playstation 2 that I wrapped up studying for Biostatistics at 12:30, and was then too tired to do anything else. 34 questions. Marked 3 I didn't know and 2 I wasn't certain on. Not too bad, for a day's work. Now if it weren't so damned tedious that I have no energy for anything else...

Medicine exam is this afternoon. Breakdown:
  • Physical Medicine (4 points of 350) : 6 multiple choice questions. In my notes I have 5 "Probable Test Questions" that he went over in class. Right down to telling us: "The answer to this one is 'D: B and C are both correct." That's an 83% right there, even without knowing what question 6 is. Which is 3 points out of 4.

  • Medicine and Law (2 points): 2 multiple choice and one true/false. He promised straightforward questions, and we all know the true/false will be over noncompetition agreements (yes, they can be enforced). Nice guy.

  • Nutrition (2 points): 50 True/false questions. FIFTY true/false questions. For two freakin' points. Lowene promises they're easy ones. And anyway, if you get half of them right (which, in theory, you can do by answering them randomly), you get one of two points. Shee.

  • Health Care Oeconomics: cancelled. No questions have magically appeared in Lowene's mailbox, so none will be on the exam. Good. He was boring.
Medicine, in case you haven't noticed, is a strange class. We have about thirty different subjects that we have little mini-lecture-series events on, then a test over them. What this is supposed to accomplish, precisely, I'm not sure. The lecturing physicians write the questions and submit them. Some of them go to great lengths to come up with board-quality questions, but most of them realise that we have other things to do with our time.
Guys are joking around over the Nutrition section, by way of review. This shit is ridiculous. FIFTY questions, for two points. Gah.
