Studying for the NAVLE® is in fool swing and we see many of you taking pictures of your studying habits on social media sites. It's amazing how studying has changed in just a few short years now that we have apps at our finger tips whether be it a laptop or a smart phone.
Below is my story of how I used to study, and when you are done, I have a challenge for you! You are probably doing it already!
How I Studied for the NAVLE® 20 Years Ago
Recently, I joined VetPrep to become the new Veterinary Program Manager. It's heartwarming to be part of a team that is so dedicated to mentoring the next generation of veterinarians.
Back in the day, when I was a senior student studying for boards, we didn't have the study resources like you have today. This was before the turn of the century - 1999 - and the concept of being able to pull out a smart phone, open an app with the touch of a finger and study on the fly was not even fathomable!
Being at the barn with the horses was my escape from the stress of clinical rotations. I spent countless hours there pouring over textbooks and desperately trying to cram in the knowledge I needed to pass The Big Test.
Kept company by the sound of shuffling feet and munching hay, I'd have books spread in a giant circle around me and a handful of highlighter pens every color of the rainbow.
I still have some of those old books, archaic as they are now and covered in all kinds of yucky animal stuff! Somehow I managed to get through it all and you will too! Only now, you have us here at VetPrep as a study companion and resource.
So Now it's your turn! What's Your Story (In Images)? Where do you VetPrep?
We would love to see how and where you study for the NAVLE® using the VetPrep service on your social accounts!
