    Congratulations to those of you who took the written boards today and yesterday! What were your thoughts?

    Does anybody have published data showing the passage rates for this test? I know people do fail, but it seems like odds are in your favor.

    Go Celebrate!!

    Time to chill out peeps. Most of you will be entering your first PP/academic gig.

    NICE! :thumbup:

    Most of you will pass the first time around. I don't remember what the pass rate is... but I believe it to be higher than the orals (which is around 80 some percent... if I remember right).

    I was part of the group who first started taking them infront of a computer. I thought the test was extremely fair.... and the test was MUCH shorter than previous years. I was outta there at 12:30ish.

    I concur.

    Go celebrate this victory...

    Attending style!

    I hate the worst f$%ing headache after I was done - took all day. It's probably nice on the comp.

    First section was a beast and took me to school. Second section much more doable. I do not feel very confident and felt like I may be taking this thing again. I always did well enough to "pass" on the ITE but just do not have a clue with this thing.

    Iso, I felt the exact opposite. During the 20 min break time I was thinking to myself "Im killing this exam!". Went back in and thought i was taking a whole different test. I wonder if q bank is scrambled up or is it just like the ite only on computer. I got fatigued after long blank stares at the screen that second half.

    My first block was Ok but the second block was full of pharm/CCM questions. I must have flagged 20 of these and did not feel that great afterwards.

    Ditto!
    I finished first half with an hour left and got schooled on the second one.
    Oh well, what's done is done! Now we wait...
