What's New in Version 2.1
Osmosis is AMAZING!! I have been a fellow user since my first semester of medical school when the app was not even half of what it is today. I still liked it then because it gave me a different approach to questions and allowed me to practice the topics I was covering in lectures, all while I was grabbing a coffee, or walking over from point A to point B, and even from the comfort of my own bed while going to sleep. When Shiv and the rest of the Osmosis team launched Osmosis Prime, I really didn't think it could get better...ohh but it did! After switching over to Osmosis Prime and inputting my information and test dates as well as my STEP 1 date, the app has allowed me o practice relevant material that goes hand in hand with my schedule of lectures, exams, and more! If you don't have this app on your phone yet and haven't joined, you must give it a try. The best part of it all is that you get a free trial when you join allowing you full access to the app so that you can determine whether or not it is something you want to continue using or not. If I had to rate this app I would give it 5 stars for uniqueness, efficiency, user friendly, engagig, and FUN! Who said learning can't be easy and fun?!?!
Osmosis is an amazing application that not only allows students to keep all of their coursework in a organized platform, but also uses that same coursework to formulate personalized practice materials. This includes flashcards, practice questions, videos, etc., all based on coursework that you are currently studying. Osmosis also keeps you on your toes by sending "push questions" to your mobile devices throughout the day, so you are continuously learning new things and are constantly exposed to practice questions. There are also tons of additional practice questions in all categories and organ systems available at your own leisure. These are just a few of the many components Osmosis uses to help students succeed in their studies. Since joining Osmosis I have had a wonderful experience. Communication through an in-platform messaging system allows quick and effective delivery, and everyone at Osmosis is extremely caring and willing to help you in any way they can. I absolutely LOVE Osmosis and the services they provide. I wish that I joined earlier because now I cannot see myself studying without it.
As an first year med student, I have searched high and low for tools that will help me handle and organize the workload thrown at me in medical school. This app really helps me do this. Many people told me, when I started my first year that my previous study methods just wouldn’t cut it for med school. Now I think they were only partially correct; if you can figure out how to organize your study material such that you are able to obtain and maintain the repetition of concepts, you will succeed. Osmosis helps me do this. From pushing flashcards to my phone, to constructing a timeline of all my coursework, to suggesting resources (videos, picmonic, etc.), it takes a lot of the organization work off my shoulders. My lecture content is always accessible, even if I don’t have my personal laptop with me. It is a very powerful and comprehensive tool. Best of all, the support staff is amazing! They are incredibly accessible and always open to suggestions. They have rolled out many improvements, even in the short time I have been using it. I would highly recommend anyone give it a try.
