    Mosby's Pharmacology Notecards and Pathophysiology Notecards... I remember seeing someone on here mentioning a crate-like thing they kept in the trunk of their car so they could have all their books with them but not be lugging them all around at the same time!

    @sugarmagnolia018 Thanks for that!!!

    I'm DEFINITELY Getting those notecards!

    I'm a visual learner and these would be very beneficial to me! thanks so much!

    And I would do the whole crate thing, but knowing me i'd spill coffee, juice, or an energy drink all over everything, or i'd lose them, rip the pages...etc...basically for me it wouldn't work....lol

    Note cards are a must! I got a Jansport rolling backpack and it's awesome. So much so that 11 or 12 other students got the same one*L*

    That thread is worth taking a look at, because there is a list of typical values, results, and such. I've only been through Nursing I with clinicals in LT skilled care and med-surg (they push us fast) and I get the gist of most of what's on that list and have actually encountered a lot of it in lecture and clinicals, and the extra research I put into my clinicals. I am one of those people who always has to know what lies ahead.

    I'd buy flashcards, not spend time making piles of them. I never got that whole flashcard thing. I am more of a list-type learner, I guess.
