  2. Can anyone explain the answer to #16 in block 4?

  3. Block 2: 37 is not A. I chose that (Acute Stress Disorder) and it was marked as incorrect. I believe the answer they were looking for was E: Social Phobia.

  4. Block 4, #16 - about confidence intervals:

    the confidence interval lower range is x-z(s/sqrtN)
    upper range is x+z(s/sqrtN)
    (sorry for the bad notation, look up the formula in FA if it's confusing or you don't remember)

    in a 95% confidence interval, the value of z = 1.96. in a 99% confidence interval, the value increases to z = 2.56. so around the mean, x, you would be adding a larger number for the upper limit, and subtracting a larger number for the lower limit. Overall, the difference between the upper and lower numbers for the confidence interval would be greater, so "size is larger" is choice A

  15. Block 3 #34 is C

    CREST syndrome is thought to be triggered by increased proliferation and accumulation of monoclonal T cells in the affected tissues that secrete a variety of cytokines, especially TGF-b that increases the production of collagen and extracellular matrix proteins by fibroblasts.
