    Yes, but lots to read over the summer and a bit worried about biomechanics as it seems quite a challenge! You?

    yeah, same to be honest, just going to be recapping anatomy and clinical nail & foot condition as I have placement in September. A lot of people find biomec abit confusing, i recommend a book by Jacquelin Perry, Gait Analysis you may find it very useful if you can get hold of it.

    Ok, I passed everything but the biomechanics exam I only just scraped a pass! I struggle with that. The rest were all good really. How about you?
