Picmonic has definitely upgraded my study sessions. After reading my book and going over notes Picmonic helps to bring it all together in ways I never thought!
Picmonic is a lifesaver. The pharmacology section saved me.
I love Picmonic! I also checked out something similar called SketchyNursing. Picmonic is the better choice for me because it's shorter and better illustrated. Sketchy is so long and drawn out that everything gets lost in details I don’t need. Picmonic’s iOS app makes it easy for daily review which is a must in nursing school!
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!
I’ve been with you guys for more than a year and I’m loving it! It’s a fun way to learn new things every day! Picmonic has changed the way I study, and I’m very grateful for all of you for making these awesome educational videos!
I can remember every corny commercial on T.V. but knew I was going to have a really tough time in my master's pharmacology class. Picmonic is just that; a corny commercial that I can remember, packed with key information.
I was skeptical of paying for a study site but, after the first week of using Picmonic in my NP program, I was telling everyone about how much I have learned and remembered!
I didn't discover Picmonic until late into my pharmacology course... but what I studied on Picmonic has been the content that stuck in my brain! It is totally worth every penny!
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.
I got 103% in my Pharmacology class, and I used ONLY Picmonic to study and prepare!
I'm a visual learner, so Picmonic's colorful and unique images tell a story that help me recall information during exams.
I love Picmonic. I have always been a visual learner and these cartoons help me so much. I easily bring the image to mind when being tested on material.
Using picmonic helps me remember a lot of the little details clearly. That is something that will always come in handy no matter what profession you are in.
My biggest regret about Picmonic is that I did not start using it sooner. I am so grateful for Picmonic!!!
Picmonic was a life changer! Made review easier and more fun to learn than PowerPoints or flashcards.
It helps me learn content faster especially when I don't have the energy to read dry text! It helps me read the dry text even easier at a later time.
Picmonic is BY FAR the most helpful resource I have used for learning pharmacology. Whenever I hear a drug name, I immediately imagine the Picmonic in my head!
Picmonic takes complex topics and turns them into memorable scenes that are fun and easy to watch.
It’s the perfect compliment to any NPTE study guide.
As a visual learner, Picmonic not only caters to my preferred learning style, but also serves to create a medium through which I am able to integrate material on a much deeper level. I am so thankful that Picmonic exists!
I stumbled upon Picmonic while searching for a better way to study for my Physical Therapy exams. I am truly amazed at Picmonic's creativity. Through Picmonic I am able to remember and retain all of the information I need!
I love Picmonic! It is such a great tool to understand the content of certain things especially pharmacology. When I found Picmonic on YouTube I was amazed at how it made me laugh and understand terms. I will continue to use Picmonic for the remainder of my future career!
As a first-year physical therapy student, the amount of content we are learning is very dense. Picmonic is a wonderful resource that makes studying fun! I’d recommend it to any student looking for an enjoyable, yet educational, break from the books!!
My only regret is that I didn’t start using it earlier and more often. Would definitely recommend it!
I love Picmonic because the videos are short, memorable, and to the point. The pictures and images are clever and make learning more enjoyable!
Picmonic has allowed me to gain a better understanding of concepts. By using the videos and quizzes, I'm able to remember important Paramedic information more easily!
I am pre-studying right now to go back to school, and Picmonic is a great platform to refresh your mind on different topics! I love learning with Picmonic, and it is a fun way to remember those tricky subjects!
I love Picmonic because I have always liked cartoons, and I am a visual learner. This combined with Paramedical topics is a golden combination! Thank you Picmonic!
I wish I had learned about Picmonic during my first year of pharmacy school! Picmonic has helped me learn and remember details that I would never have remembered in the blur of medication facts. I am now studying for my board exams and using Picmonic as a way to refresh and review for the exam!
Picmonic helps students learn in a fun exciting way by adding visual aids to enhance the learning experience. Thank you for this resource for myself and for my students!
Picmonic covers many topics with very short videos, which is so helpful because we learn so many things in a short amount of time during Paramedic school! On exams, I can't help but think of the awesome Picmonic mnemonic devices!
I found Picmonic just after starting my 2nd semester, and I wish I had found it at the start of my 1st!! The way that extremely complicated content is delivered on Picmomic is amazing, and the post terrier character is my favourite!
Picmonic gives you simple ways to remember medications, how they work, what they do, and their side effects. After a long day of class, I enjoy sitting down and watching Picmonic videos. It even quizzes your knowledge at the end of each video!
I'm so glad I subscribed!
I am able to study for fewer hours and get better grades. Perhaps most importantly, I feel my anxiety level about retaining information for test day has decreased substantially.
I enjoy how Picmonic breaks everything down in a fun way!
Picmonic is helpful for anyone who learns visually!
Using Picmonic is a great study aid because it enables me to learn the the most imporatnt facts of a large topic quickly! I love the daily quiz because it always keeps me on track with my studies!
I have a huge final coming up in anatomy and physiology, a 6 credit course which if you haven't been in a nursing program in 5 years they make you take certain classes over again. I needed something to help me remember all the activities of the body and the terms. This is it!
I found the sketches and Picmonic videos incredibly creative and ingenious, which made the studying process kind of fun! Using Picmonic was like having a tutor whose majors were Medicine, Art, and Film, and who also had a great sense of humor. To be honest, I couldn't have asked for more.
I love Picmonic because of its ease of use and fun way to test what one has learned. I wish I had learned about it at the beginning of my training!
I was really struggling to retain numerical lab values and understand certain concepts for my classes until I stumbled onto Picmonic. Not only has Picmonic helped me to better memorize those pesky numbers, I also understand exactly what those labs are looking for. I love being able to customize my learning for the areas of study I am learning and can't wait to continue on this nursing journey with Picmonic just a quick click away!
I cannot emphasize how grateful I am to have stumbled across Picmonic. These guys have thought of all the details to make it a smooth and convenient experience. The resources cover everything you need to know and more, as opposed to other overpriced alternatives which have limited content. It's very affordable which is why I'm using it year-round during medical school. Keep up the great work guys!!! Love it!
Picmonic is hilarious and the images are more fun than SketchyMedical. Picmonic videos are shorter and the platform offers spaced repetition quizzes with the Picmonics included.
I had the hardest time organizing all the microbiology organisms in my head, but visualizing the Picmonics in my head helps me easily remember multiple facts about tons of organisms. It prioritizes the important facts and doesn't feed you unnecessary information to clutter your head. I love Picmonic, it has made my studying more productive and fun!
My test scores improved drastically after using Picmonic! This is the only method that was enjoyable and made me want to keep studying. I recommend Picmonic to everyone I know in nursing school. I also purchased the 4 Week to NCLEX Workbook and Study Guide and I am comfortable going into the NCLEX because of it! Perfect layout. Highly recommend!!
Picmonic is hands down my favorite study tool for PA school! Not only has it helped me to retain a ton of information during my didactic year of school, but it has done so in a way that doesn't even feel like I'm studying. I love the fact that they have such a wide variety of topics that neatly align with the PANCE blueprint as well. Picmonic definitely helped me maintain a high GPA so far during PA school, and I'd recommend it to anyone else going into PA school or a similar health care career pathway!
Picmonic is phenomenal! It helps me tremendously with my memorization and understanding of common conditions and ailments. It provides a much needed break from reading with a fun interactive option to incorporate into my study regimen.
I loved studying with Picmonic because it literally saved me in pharmacology class. I was getting C's on exams and in a matter of just two weeks, I was getting A's on exams. I could not believe how these animations helped me to remember what I needed to study. I recommend Picmonic to every nursing student I know. Picmonic supporter for life here!
Remember that feeling of watching Sunday morning cartoons as a kid, kicked back and relaxed? Well, that's Picmonic! They created comics for those challenging, hard-to-remember exam topics. I love most that once you get to know each outrageous character, you quickly identify them when they pop up in other topics! So, it makes learning more efficient and saves a ton of time.
Picmonic is an efficient way to grasp important topics because it uses clever visual cues that imprint in your mind. Thanks to Picmonic, I have enjoyed being a part of the top 25% of my class.
Picmonic has been awesome! Transitioning to the first semester of medical school is always tough. The fire hydrant analogy is spot on. Picmonic helps turn that fire hydrant into a gallon of water a day. Difficult, but doable.
Picmonic is hands down the best resource available for nursing school.
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.
My pharmacology instructor introduced our class to Picmonic and I fell in love right away.
We went in as a group membership, and it’s been the best money I have spent on additional resources.
I just graduated and had the ‘4 Weeks to NCLEX®’ workbook and study planner printed and bound. I plan to utilize it and another review book to study for (and hopefully pass) the NCLEX® that I plan to take in 4 weeks.
I loveeeeee Picmonic! Just finished my 4th quarter of Physician Assistant school and am so thankful for all of the crazy stories and images to help me get through the didactic phase!!! PA school would be impossible without the Picmonic study tool/app!
Picmonic has really helped me remember signs, symptoms, and lab values. A lot of times textbooks can have extra information that won’t come up on a test and Picmonic really helps pick out the important points to know. Picmonic is very very helpful and an efficient way to remember/study.
I am a super busy clinical supervisor, so I work well over 40+ hours a week. I also am in a vigorous Nurse Practitioner program. Taking three classes a week along with its workload are a lot!
A classmate mentioned Picmonics to help with remembering all the pharmacology-related material. I was hooked after the free trial. I still remember the mnemonics and pictures for Pharm II. I highly recommend it for any medical program!
Picmonic blows the other guys out of the water. I like that there is a quiz for every Picmonic and how it stays simple. Every topic has a story and an educational view, plus, the characters are more original and out there. I can check out each individual character and read more about it on the side bar if I want to.Sketchy characters were pretty plain and boring. I watched their Vancomycin video, and all I could picture was Picmonic’s van-tank mice representing the A-team! Their videos are WAY too long. The video I watched about loop diuretics was over 12 minutes long. My favorite Picmonics have accelerated me past my peers are acid based and lab values. Keep up the great work at Picmonic!
Picmonic helped me retain information I wasn’t retaining through reading alone. I’m a very visual learner, so these videos have been so helpful. Even if it’s only one or two facts that I retain, it’s more than I otherwise would have. And the videos are fairly quick. I love how I can take the quiz after to really cement the information.
The Acid/Base Picmonic was hands down the best learning tool for that topic. It made remembering AND understanding so much easier.
”You mad bruh, go blow off some CO2.″ That will be forever embedded in my brain!
You guys rock. You make learning fun and (almost) effortless. You have no idea how good it feels to confidently answer exam questions all because I remember a Picmonic character during an exam. I’ve always felt that Picmonic is there to provide basic information before I dive into a topic and to reinforce high-yield information.
Personally, Picmonic works for me because things are kept short and simple. SketchyNursing seems to have a let-me-teach-you-everything-in-one-video approach. I couldn’t watch more than 8 min of the videos because I felt like I was wasting time on small details.
You guys split up the videos into educational and story versions. I think breaking things up like that is much more effective than cramming everything into one video. I also like Picmonic because each topic is broken down into assessment, intervention, etc sections.
You guys are geniuses. Thank you so much for everything you do.
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 as an NP student.
I have the ability to use Picmonic whenever I have time and I can recall much more when it is test time. The price was steep for me, but since I took the plunge, I really do not regret it.
I was first told about Picmonic during Anatomy & Physiology 2 by my lab instructor. I didn’t really think much of it and didn’t listen to him when he first told us about how great of a learning tool it was. “Eh, I can do it myself,” I thought to myself.
Fast forward to nursing school… Nursing school is different in that you have to remember details about diseases and drugs in a VERY short amount of time. I really struggled to figure out how exactly I would remember every adverse effect, manifestation, and black box warning about such a vast number of drugs/diseases… until… I remembered Picmonic and decided to check it out. THANK GOODNESS I DID!
I went from doing horribly in a class to doing MUCH, MUCH better thanks to Picmonic. Their videos really highlight IMPORTANT DETAILS. I remember sitting in my chair during the test and being able to recall all of the Picmonics that I watched.
Have you ever seen a list of facts and you’ve got to memorize 20 of them for a test? You waste all that time memorizing those 20 facts, you get 100% on the test and then it’s gone for forever. You’re going to have to study the exact same way again, right? With Picmonic you can entertain your way into those 20 facts and you can always refer to a picture when you forget. I remember thinking “I watched a Picmonic on this”. I thought it was so silly at the time. But holy crap it got me to the right answer and that just kept happening, over and over.
My only regret with Picmonic was not finding out about it at the beginning of PA school! As soon as I got it, I immediately improved in studying more efficiently!
I am a big believer in audiovisual learning, creating stories and memory palaces, and spaced repetition – Picmonic has done most of the leg work in putting all these together!
I love that it is created by PAs based on the Pance Prep Pearls. And if you need to remember something from a class lecture that is not in that particular Picmonic, you can custom add notes, pictures, and questions!
Picmonic has made pharmacology so much easier! When I was preparing to represent my school in our annual challenge bowl, I used Picmonic to study because of all the buzzwords incorporated into it.
(By the way, we dominated our competition – thanks Picmonic!)
Picmonic has been a huge part of my learning. I just took the first UWORLD simulation exam and I scored a 275 (99% percentile) and it’s definitely because of Picmonic.
I used sketchy before & don’t get me wrong, I liked sketchy for Micro & Pharm but I hated how it was pretty much almost impossible to review the videos before a test because you have to watch HOURS of videos to get through it I felt like the videos always had a bunch of extra $#!@ that was unneeded & distracted you from the actual facts.
I’m not trying to bash Sketchy, but Sketchy is for average students who are looking for a passing grade only, while Picmonic is for the students who want to excel because they were the ones who knew that extra small detail that changed their score from a 239 to a 245 or a 249 to 255….because one extra correct question on the actual USMLE can mean a few extra points.
This is an amazing tool! I have improved memory retention! In combination with NRSNG, Picmonic has become a MUST with my daily studies and has improved my grades and confidence exponentially. Thank you!
Pure memorization can be hard, but Picmonic has helped me to ACE my pharmacology class in nursing school. 1000x thanks!
Picmonic is a place where learning is fun!
