I cannot believe what I just heard. The instructor, in a desperate attempt to justify this lousy course, used the textbook choice to justify it. The author himself says the text is geared for "resident physicians studying for post graduate boards." We are first year medical students.
That is, however, completely beside the point. This is the most ill conceived, poorly designed, busy work infested courses I have ever taken in my educational career. But arguing about it is absolutely futile. God, give me the strength to just get through this...please!
