So... who understand stats? More importantly, can anyone point me towards any resources that explain how to do a student t test in idiotproof terminology?
Well, this site will do them for you. But as the other guy said it sounds like you want ANOVA anyway

I know bugger all about statistics...
Anyone recommend a decent book for dunces?
Pretty dunce proof explanations of the stats, plus if you're doing an iBSc in pharmacology you'll almost certainly end up using this program.

2. I am sick. But not sick enough to be off tomorrow, so am sitting here thinking about how I have to get up in less than 9 hours.

Awesome, thanks.

4. So, my flatmates and I setup my xbox/my pc/friends PC in my room on my big desk and all sat from approx 4pm till now playing Skyrim. We only stopped for half hour to go get a pizza hut from next door. They've all left now so I'm sat listening to megaman 2 - Wileys stage and wondering if it's worth going to sleep or not.

Problem, medical degree?
5. hungover but looked at my timetable and decide probability of scannign is high. Time to walk 3 miles with a hangover to sleep in a lecture theatre. great.

Love SSC Week, told you Neurobiology of Pain was a good choice
10. Will be glad to see the back of this SSC this afternoon.

I must say I can't wait for the Christmas break now, knacked.
11. Exams tmrw
12. Question: What reasons would one have for doing the USMLE without the intention of going to the States?

Also, is revising for them a substantial (bordering on unreasonable) addition to the workload?

CV purposes maybe? It's a pretty hardcore basic science test. There's no real point doing it if you have no intention of moving to the USA though. Bloody expensive!

You'd be far better served by MRCP which would be far cheaper, a little bit harder and much more significant in this country.
15. Anyone got a cure for a bitten tongue? I must've bit it the other night and it's ridiculous how annoying it is - I was trying to read an admission note out loud to my tutor today and I sounded like I was half-drunk/had a mouthful of hot potatoes... :/

To have some actual reason to learn all the pre-clin stuff you never actually learned the first time round. And clearly having money to burn...

Apparently the answer to your second question is yes.
18. my housemates have rediscovered singstar.

NOOOOOOO

strangled cats
19. da*** is this? Seems like all of my old schoolmates are getting married and/or starting a family while I'll be a student for another 3.5 years.
