Hi there,

I'm looking to take the California State Boards, and am having difficulties finding online review courses or proper study material for it. When I took the NAVLE (2 years ago) I used Zuku/Vet Prep and also attending a weekly online class for review and thought it really helped. I haven't been able to find any review classes, or produced material for revision. I have some of the previous tests people have talked about but I was wondering if there was anything else that people have used to prepare for this?
I also don't have the most up to date exams/study material so would be very appreciative to get that as well!

Thanks!

Hi Gei,
I signed up for VIN under a student account and took a CE course for the NAVLE (for $50 I think). It was a weekly 2 hr course on a Sunday night that went on for 6 weeks or, each week covering a different category of animals (horse/ cow/ dog/ cat) that helped guide me for studying of that following week (then using Zuku/vetprep for that). While looking for board prep I've seen it there :)

if you took the navle that recently, you honestly don't need to study much.

Hello forum Doctors, I am a Canadian Vet in the process of taking the California Board Exam and wondering if someone could please share the study material. I have been looking for the Board Exam Study Guide but cant find it anywhere.

I would also like to know if there is a chance to register for the exam, pay the fees without having a US social security number, which I don't have. I wouldn't like to pay the fees to find out later that SSN number is required and lose my money. This I am asking because I tried to get a Florida Vet license, but there is no way to register for the exam without the SSN.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Hey Furgusonivy,

I replied to your PM. There is no official study guide for the CA boards. It's not like the BCSE or NAVLE that have their own prep programs. What I can send you is a compilation of notes, etc that have been accumulated over the years by different vets taking the CA boards. It is helpful, but if you took the NAVLE within the last 2-3 years, you would also be fine just reviewing your NAVLE notes, honestly. It's pretty standard stuff, except for the occasional CA-specific question.

Hey all,

I know that this thread is old, but I am also a Canada veterinarian looking for some material for the Californian State exam - I took the navles about a year ago and would definitely appreciate a refresher on information and some guidance!

I’d really love any information or tips anyone has on the CA State Vet Exam please. I’ll have taken my NAVLE nearly a year prior to my state exam so I am a bit nervous I will be rusty.
Thanks so much in advance!

Dr. NWS,

I am new to SDN and am looking for resources to prepare for CA State Board, I’ve recently passed my NAVLE last January 2019 and hope to prepare for the next steps which is CPE and the local CA State Board. If you can help to share resources I’ll greatly appreciate it. thanks

Hi Doctors,

If any of you are still active in this network on 2019, I am kindly reaching out to you to help sharing any study guide/notes you may have for the California vet boards exam, or advise me whether going through VetPrep should be plenty. I have taken the NAVLE and ECVFG but I really don't do any small animals. Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Hoping someone can help as really struggling to find any information online! I graduated in the United Kingdom and have completed step 3 of the ECFVG. When checking the documents on the California vet medical board, it seems to be the case that you can only get a license if you have worked in another state prior to being able to apply for a license? Is this correct? I’m really hoping not as had plans to work there initially once I had completed the CPE/state exams :( has anyone been in this situation? Thanks!

Hi everyone. Any advice on how to study for the CA boards? I'm taking mine two weeks after I take the NAVLE. I've heard conflicting advice on how best to study. Some say studying for the NAVLE is enough, while others say it didn't help at all.

Quick question, can we apply to take the CSB before we have our NAVLE results? I am an out of state applicant. But on the BreEZe it looks like I need my NAVLE passing document to finish my examination application. Also if anyone still has the CSB study packet I would really appreciate it! Thanks :)

I believe you can as long as you are within 8 months from graduating. Just make sure you are filling out the correct application. The wording on the application is very confusing! Make sure there are places in your state that will take your fingerprint digitally (I believe the name of the specific facility should be somewhere in the application). If there is one near you, then I would put "no" for the question that they ask for sending you a physical card for fingerprinting (I heard this delays the process). Just make sure to have your fingerprint scanned well before you graduate (doesn't have to be before the exam) so they can give you your license before you start practicing. Also be sure to attach the photo they asked for. Additionally, it took them around 6 weeks total to process my application, so you may be in for a long wait before you can schedule your test!
