    well simple understanding of the statement "fellows who aced the boards" would imply that the comlex writers of the omm portion see eye to eye with those same fellows...that's why they 'aced that portion of the boards'

    While this is nice, it is of no comfort to me. Kuchera & Kuchera's book "Osteopathic Considerations in Systemic Dysfunction" is suppose to be the gold standard text for OMM, (which I read twice before boards) and it frequently would have contradictory information from the questions they asked. but I guess my point is, if the experts can't agree, why are we being tested over it?

    That being said, 80% of the questions can easily be obtained by knowing Sav's chapters 10 & 11, then another 10% by knowing positioning, general nomenclature, dx, and treatment. It's the other 10% which is pure crap.
