Have senior residents started studying for this exam yet? Curious as to if anyone has tried the Pass Machine online course and would suggest it as a good alternative to the Jensen course.

Planning on using True Learn as well. Not looking forward to being a guinea pig on the OSCE/sim part, but at least with the first wave it'll likely have a very low fail rate.
 
Using True Learn and if I have time PM question bank and lectures along with ACE if any left over.

Also, they published pass rate for last year, 93%!?!?!
 
program is letting my buy books for oral / advanced boards. any specific focused board prep books stand out? I currenly own miller, m and m, barash, pre-existing disease
 
On a recommendation from this board I got Yao and Artusio's text and it's great, just a bit heavy. I also have Faust, the newest edition is OK in my opinion but several of my classmates use it.
 
How many weeks do most people take to prepare for this?

I am a current CA-3 and ordered the Pass Machine. I would recommend to Pass on their review course. The lectures are too superficial and don't provide the level of detail needed to answer practice questions that I see on true learn, ACE, or our ITE's.

3 years of residency. Read about your patients/cases the night before and you will pass.
