    I took it about ten years ago, but I think I studied the Osler notes and then reread the Eric Hsi book and look at its photos.

    This exam is a beat down. If you compare the material depth for other subspec exams, it has leagues more you need to know. I would do a focused Hemepath review course like the one the Cornell folks used to do in FL every year (Knowles course?). No idea if it still exists.

    One of my co-residents took it today and she said it was quite difficult. Not sure what she used to study. We both took the cyto boards last year and she said cyto was a breeze compared to heme.
