Hi everybody, I am trying to prepare for the Advanced PTEeXAM this coming July 2018. I am at odds as to what to use to prepare. I've been reading Perino, Sorrell and journals so far. A few people have said they used PTEMasters to prepare. Others say there are other resources besides PTEMasters. Just posting here to state what I've found so far and what people's experiences have been and what you'd recommend... or not. PTEMasters I tried the free trial on PTEMasters and it seems okay. The content is somewhat overwhelming. I am surprised that the QBank is only 200 questions, though. It seems most of the learning occurs through video lectures and written content. What stops me from going for PTEMasters is really the price. $800 for 6 months (with discount) for 200 questions, lots of screen time, and PDF reading? I feel like maybe the guys saying there are other resources might be onto something. E-echocardiography No so familiar with this, but seems cheaper? BoardVitals Echocardiography Q-Bank It states it understands the requirements for ASCeXam and Advanced PTEeXam. It has 450+ questions and costs $349 for 6 months. The site states it has a free trial and I contacted customer support to try and access the free trial, but it has only been a few hours so I have not hear back. Does anyone have any experience with this? Echostudyboard 500 questions for $300 for 4 weeks. States anesthesiologists have used their Q Bank. There is a sample of 10 questions and all images in those 10 questions are TTE images. If you score 100% on the sample questions, you get an hour trial. I obviously didn't score a 100%, so I wondered if anyone has any experience with this Q bank? Books - Mathews et al - Clinical Manual and Review of TEE - one of my attendings strongly recommends this book. Reviews on Amazon seems to unanimously favor this book's content with a good amount of questions to go with it. Also fairly cheap compared to a Q Bank (<$100) - Savage at al - Comprehensive Perioperative TEE - this is the book our program gave us. It seems OK, and the main gripe with it is that it has some grammatical as well as informational errors. This is a little off putting if I'm a newbie learning something new. How would I know what is a mistake? - Sorrell et al - Questions, Tips and Tricks for the Echo Boards - Good all round reviews on Amazon. 700 questions for <$50. Geared for the ASCeXam. Not sure if it is a good idea of PTeXAM. - Klien - Clinical Echocardiography Review - 1100 questions for <$100. Some issues with videos if you don't open it with a mobile app. Again, geared towards cardiologists (and therefore ASCeXAM). Not sure if it is a good idea of PTeXAM. - Gallagher - Board Stiff TEE. I read this a long time ago when it was available in our library. I liked it. Good dinner time reading and quick review but probably not enough for echo boards. Thanks!
