Picmonic works. Plain and simple. You can curate to your specific curriculum. I am amazed at how well I remember things from a year ago thanks to Picmonics.

I love picmonic! Not only was it a huge help for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 study, but it continues to prove useful studying for residency boards. I can’t recommend this product enough!

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!

Picmonic has changed the way I study. Everyone can succeed in an exam if they study, but not that many people can remember the topic a year after.
