Asked to do the same in a much larger limousine, you might signifi­cantly reduce your speed and feel exhilarated. But what if you are asked to punch the pedal to the metal—in reverse?

You can do this at ClinicalPosters but the site really comes to life when login—backwards. The account login page allows you to select a medical specialty if not previously defined.

That’s right, from your second shopping session forward, login first, then shop. (If you have never added a password, register first.) Though you are still free to shop the other way around, this method automatically filters articles and products related to interests established during your first purchase. Even though you can do it your way, try it in reverse for a more exhilarating and economical anatomical experience.
