As a visual learner, Picmonic was a great addition to my Step 1 boards studying. I was shocked at how much information and the high yield details I was able to recall while doing practice questions. I can picture a lot of the picmonics now and remember the details months later! The information definitely becomes part of your long term memory, and I don’t have to rack my brain to come up with the information!

In the beginning, I mainly used Picmonic as a secondary source, but that changed. I have fully incorporated it with my regular studying.

I am hooked! Picmonic is going to be huge. It is a brilliant concept and will be a great success.

Picmonic was a great way for me to combat nerves during the COMLEX. Instead of memorizing a gazillion pointless enzymes I was able to pull up a picture in my head and “see” the answer to the question. When you get nervous you tend to forget what you memorized, but if you have a clear picture, you always have something to go back to. Picmonic helped me do well on COMLEX. It really is a great resource. I am using it for USMLE prep as well!
Thanks guys!!
