I was wondering what those that have taken the FP Boards have used to study for it? I was thinking Swanson's but, it's pretty long and a lot of the info is outdated. What about the AAFP's comprehensive cd rom? Has anyone used this? (And would they be willing to sell their copy to me). Are the boards similar to the yearly resident FP exam in difficulty level?

I used a series of tapes last year (can't remember who put them out) that I listened to while running and driving. Worked well, I thought. Previous years I had used multiple subject-oriented books w/board-type questions that also worked well. If you are interested in buying my tapes and materials, PM me and I'll get you more info-good price, too!
