What Our Users Have to Say About Picmonic

“Effective & Efficient Study Tool”

Rising 4th year Medical Student
Florence, Alabama – Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine

I am shocked sometimes when I am working with a preceptor on the wards and I am able to answer a question correctly because I remember a detail from a Picmonic I watched during my first year! I love the way that Picmonic integrates visual and auditory learning, as well as kinesthetic interaction when answering questions. The videos are also short and interesting, so they keep my attention and I don’t feel like I am spending too much time on any given topic!

“Amazing for Pharmacology”

I love Picmonic! It’s good for most subjects and AMAZING for Pharmacology – I retain everything. Picmonic is goofier which helps – I keep it open in class and re-listen to audios when driving with Play All. It’s helpful that the drug brand names are included, and that the stories & scene are included in the educational audio! In comparison, SketchyNursing is more expensive, and the connections aren’t as strong. Their videos are 25 minutes long, taking too much time and work to find relevant content.

“Lowers My Stress”

NP Student

Picmonic took down the stress level of learning new topics and re-learning information that I had already been familiar with. I felt much less overwhelmed with all of the material I was expected to know. I have the ability to use Picmonic whenever I have time and I can recall much more when it is test time.

“Amazing Study Resource”

Picmonic is an amazing studying source. It utilizes multiple studying tools such as visual learning, auditory learning, and memory. It is a creative way to remember the pathophysiology and key facts about each topic. I would highly recommend Picmonic to any classmate or student.
