billstrickland:

There are all these sayings in cycling that sound unbelievable when you first hear them, but turn out to be true. For instance, though it sounds like complete rubbish when you’re mired in the back of the pack, riding at the front of a road race really is easier than sitting in the rear — once…

we KNOW you can do this. You got this man.

Thanks man! I appreciate the support. I’m completely burned out and just want it to be over at this point, you know?

COMQUEST, COMSAE, COMLEX, COMWTF?

Some of the questions are a bit easier than I would expect, but based on what people have told me from classes ahead of me, it is a pretty good approximate of what the actual exam is like.

I have done 300 questions in there today and had a score of 59.33% total on it. I don’t think that’s too terrible considering the average of ~65% overall. That includes people who do questions a second time as well. 

Our program requires we take a COMSAE as a qualifier to sit for COMLEX and I think I may be in line to do okay on it. We have to attain a certain minimum score or else we have to meet with the dean’s staff to assess our study plan.

I took one of the COMSAEs about a month ago and had a score that was just shy of what our program wants us to have. That made me feel like I have a chance. I’m trying to hit some of the highest-yield material this week in prep for that so I am in as good a shape as possible. I don’t want to have to meet with anyone. I want to just go in and kill it on Friday, and then do the same on May 29th to the real thing.

I think I can do it.

Location of synthesis of neurotransmitters mnemonic




It’s hard to remember. It’s easy with pictures!



To sum it all up:

Dopamine - Ventral tegmentum
Serotonin - Raphe nucleus
Norepinephrine - Locus cereleus
GABA - nucleus accumbens
Acetylcholine - Basal nucleus of Meynert

That’s all!
