    holy crap you have to have an ipod touch ????? Sounds stupid, I hope we don't need one for Shadyside. I'd go scour "The Exchange" My boyfriend just got one there for like 70 bucks.

    **edit** also I didn't forget about the CPR thing, the guy just came back from vacation. I was thinking of scheduling it for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon don't know where though. If anyone has any ideas or dates they want lemme know.

    Ok, What was the reason we couldn't buy our Pharmacology book used? I bought one from a website and it said that it was brand new. I figured there would be a CD or something with it... When I got it in the mail, it was wrapped in cellophane, so its new, but there were no cds or anything with it! HELP!

    Is there like a code inside, I think they said it gives you access to the online course.

    I think they said that you need to buy the bundle. It seems to come with just the textbook or the textbook, user guide and access code:


    The ISBN is off by 2 numbers on the end.

    I haven't bought my books yet but I'll let you know once I get them.

    Hi everyone, I am currently on the waitlist for the August 2012 start date and next week I will know for sure if a spot opens up in your class. I'm trying to prepare myself for the August 2012 start date since it's only a month away, so does anyone know the exact start date of classes?

    The use of calculators is permitted during testing and will be provided by the school.

    People are allowed to use calculators during the PSB now. Does this totally **** off anyone other than me???

    I just bought everything tonight (including skyscape). I also got the study books associated with our textbooks for additional review. I spent some serious cash (like 600 for everything). I got them all new from amazon. I haven't looked elsewhere. This is just for fundamentals, med-surg and pharm.
