"I was able to put it into practice and understand it. I feel that if you think about theories and mechanisms, you will end up remembering less and your learning will be more effective. I am satisfied with the fact that CKS's Foundation (electronic textbook) is available online, so I don't have to carry it around. I usually study on my PC at home, but now that I'm in my fourth year, I can't understand clinical classes without knowing the basics, so I use a tablet to check things out during class. It is difficult to read a textbook from beginning to end, so being able to search for things you don't understand by keyword is efficient. Another good thing about CKS is that it covers almost all subjects, so you don't have to buy additional textbooks. When searching, you can search across multiple textbooks, so you can find the explanation that is easiest for you to understand. ”
