    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!

    Hey 818,

    I took and passed the CA boards in December. Send me your e-mail address and I can send you study material that has been accumulated generation after generation. I warn you, however, that it has a good number of errors.

    The CA boards are quite simple. After the NAVLE and the ECFVG it was easy-peasy. I studied the day before and got 91/100 (they give you your score immediately, by the way)

    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 :)

    I would love to have California state boards study material emailed to me, sent you a PM Dr NWS. I took NAVLE in November.

    Thanks!

    sent it, good luck!

    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!
