Angry in AK ,

A slow start but they fixed it

The developers reached out to me and got the issues resolved. They even upgraded my program to give me USMLE content. My frustration did not reflect the quality of the program itself, which is really pretty good. I think that having multiple layers of content predisposes to getting wires crossed. Anyway, I have revised my initial assessment and so far can give it five stars. It is not a full course in medicine, but it isn’t intended to be. It is a useful adjunct to your studies. It delivers high content in digestible packets.

Picmonic is a win!

Everything about this app works well. I already see improvements to my exam scores after one week! The staff is extremely responsive to questions. This works seamlessly with Osmosis Uworld and First Aid. A Chief Resident ER Attending told me that a picmonic helped him make several obscure diagnosis under pressure. It’s a funny cartoon yes, but it sticks to your brain like a leach. Maybe saves lives. Great use of your time.

A better way to learning!

It’s amazing, the way you study things you don’t even feel it because it’s very fun and interactive. You don’t get bored or tired of reading and doing same stuff. This is a more interactive way and fun to learn and remember things in a more easier and fun way.
