Does anyone have a recommendation for good study books to use for basic TEE? I don't really need one with the depth for advanced TEE, but rather a good one that is intuitive, easy to read, etc for basic TEE.
Thanks. Sounds good. I'm gonna go basic for the basic, and then spend much more time studying to take the Advanced exam with goal of Testamur.Board Stiff TEE, Gallagher. Quick, simple and to the point if that is all you're looking for. Uses a lot of humor but is thorough.
I understand that sentiment, but while the basic exam exists I like the CV padding that it offers. So, it's mainly for that. I have plenty of CME money which makes that a non-issue for me.Why would you take the basic exam if your goal is to pass the advanced exam? That's a huge waste of time and money. I'm not sure why the basic exam exists at all except for the echo boards and ASA to make money off of people. It doesn't give you any kind of "expertise" or credentials. If you want to use TEE for hearts, skip the basic and just study for the advanced exam.
That being said, I highly recommend PTE masters. Great exam material and easy to follow lectures.
