Helpful study session

No, not a gypsy seance or Guinness Book of records biggest tarot card reading but a very helpful study session! I was in clinic yesterday for herbal consultations with the public and it was a slow day. Coincidentally we have a herbal formulas exam today so we turned it into this study session. Laura, who is a details person in my opinion, shared her study cards with us in the locker room. Four sets of cards with signs and symptoms, herbal formula name, TCM treatment principle and Bing Ji (disease process) were laid out in four columns. Then we picked one card at random and matched all the indicators and definitions for one formula. It was a very clever and engaging way to do it and I will be using this technique for rest of semester!!!PS James got into another picture, again
