I just wanted to compliment you all on creating such an amazing resource for visual learners in medical school! Out of everything I use to study, Picmonic helps me lock it in long-term. I have KILLED my block exams so far because of all of you! It truly is a magnificent product. It really just helps me keep little details straight—something that is important to accomplish before Step preparation. I’m not sure how popular Picmonic is, but I want to assure you that there are people like me who love it and use it regularly.
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.
Picmonic was a great help for me for learning biochemistry for Step 1. Particularly learning all the different biochemical pathways, catalytic enzymes involved, and associated diseases. I recommended it to many of my friends who wanted to learn the biochemistry as well.
While it may sound like an exaggeration, I owe picmonic for the majority of my success throughout medical school. Being a very visual learner, I found that the picmonic’s unique method of quick, re-watchable, unforgettable stories stuck in my mind unlike anything else, including several other well-known resources that I tried. Not only was picmonic invaluable for both STEP 1 and 2, but it helped immensely when getting pimped by attendings on clerkships. I found that the things I had learned through picmonic were always the easiest to recall when asked questions under pressure. I could not thank picmonic any more profusely for their work and for being such a dependable, valuable resource.
Picmonic has been instrumental throughout my med school journey. I may have not been the top of my class but these bizarre picmonics have helped me remember heart murmurs, brain vasculature and more. When I don't have it I feel lost lol. I always end up coming back and hope this will help me overcome the hurdle of STEP 2 CK! Thanks picmonic I <3 you!
