    the trick to study of both subjects is to know normal assessment findings so that when you see something abnormal you will be able to recognize it. children are often unable to articulate clearly any symptoms they are having so observation and assessment of their behavior is important. you also need to review the normal behavior of a child that should be present at the various stages of development from birth through adulthood. again, abnormal findings in assessments of newborns, toddlers and school age children will be likely to be the basis for good test questions. for ob, in particular, know what normal labor and delivery is. a lot of things go wrong during pregnancy and labor. these are things you are likely to get tested on.

    Congrats on having your first semester done!

    I think that Daytonite gave you plenty of sites which is something I am not really good at...but this I can say....

    for Peds...I have to keep in mind that pediatrics is a world all by itself in that I am caring for people who are not necessarily small versions of adults. Alot of the approaches are different, med doses will be different and often based on weight...so make sure you have your weight conversions down pat...I use alot of what I have learned from lifespan psychology to understand the approaches I need to take with different age groups...

    as for OB...I must always keep in mind that often 2 people's lives are at stake...mom and fetus...I have to know what is going on with both. OB too, is a different realm of its own.

    You will do great! Come by and ask questions...you seem to be ambitious and determined...good luck to you!

    Agree also with Daytonite that it is important to know a normal assessment inside out and backwards. :spin:

    actually, beanny, the people who had the advantage in our ob and peds class were the ones that already had kids...maybe you could take that tack?
