HIGH YIELD NOTES
Creating flowcharts and other visual representations is a great way to learn. It allows me to visualize relationships when reading just won’t suffice.
Tables are also helpful. You’ll notice patterns in tables that make it easy to memorize a bunch of things at once. See my chart on gram negative bacilli (curved) for an example.
I hope the charts in my High-Yield section give you some idea of what I mean. They helped me learn a lot of bacteriology. However, it’s always better to create your own charts because mine are pretty ugly and you’ll look at them and say, “hey this guy sucks – i’m going to punch him in the face when I see him.” Yeah…well please don’t.
