Hi all, I don't want to get lost in a lot of resources for board prep. So far have been reading Benzon's essentials of pain. Im looking for the best single question bank to use. Also, if it exists, a single concise review book to use for board prep. Thanks for the help!

Board Vitals is the single best. take notes on the explanations. Do the qbank twice.. Do you incorrect questions x3. You will easily pass.

Distantly followed by Huntoon's Pain Medicine Board Review (physical book of questions/qbank).

I did bv and passmachine and, tbh I was surprised at how low yield they were.

They were helpful to me because they touched on a lot of topics in an engaging way and the explanations and f/u reading filled in some gaps.

Board Vitals is low yield but very educational and worthwhile. I found the Huntoon pain book to be excellent and representative of the actual exam.

Huntoon's chapters on actual pain medicine topics were great and high yield. But half the book was psychology, stats, or about prescribing opioids in Africa. Probably 10 chapters were irrelevant, but the actual pain chapters were very good (~15 chapters).

Has anyone used a QBank for the ABIPP exam? I have their question book around here somewhere,, but haven't gotten around to seriously looking at it.
