Couple things relating to Exam 3

First thing: I can’t believe I forgot this, but I forgot to record the Zoom Exam 3 review session yesterday 😦 So I made a quick video that covers the explanations for the Kahoot questions that were the most tricky. There’s nothing new in it – so if you don’t want to watch it, don’t worry! But I wanted to post something for those of you who couldn’t make it to the Zoom session.

Second thing: a question came up during the review session – and I couldn’t recall the answer – so I said I’d post it here 🙂

By the way, it’s okay to say “I don’t know.” I’m not sure if dental students get the same kind of weird vibe that med students get, where you feel like it’s not okay to say you don’t know – it’s the dumbest thing. Because no one can possibly know everything all the time. And also because if you pretend to know something, instead of saying “I don’t know,” then you’re likely to miss out on some important learning.

Anyway. Off the soapbox. Here’s the question:

Q. Do plicae circulares exist in the entire small intestine, or just the jejunum?

A. Plicae circulares exist in the duodenum and the jejunum, but not in the ileum.

Exam review Zoom meeting cancelled

I apologize for the late notice – but I have an unexpected conflict today with our previously-scheduled Zoom meeting – so I have to cancel that meeting. However, here is the Exam 3 Review Kahoot we were going to go through – so please go through it on your own, if you choose, and let me know if you have any questions at all. I’m happy to set up individual Zoom meetings (or group ones, if there are several people that have the same availability!) to talk about any questions.
