Basically, Im a second year and want to start thinking about how to prepare for boards.

What books to get, what to study, how to study... basically any pearls of wisdom you guys can pass down would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance. :cool:

Any of the USMLE First Step Guides will help, and don't forget your lower limb anatomy notes.

I know that you are a second year now. However, for NBPME Part 2 boards (which you take in your 4th year), there is a prep book out there specifically for NBPME Part 2 boards. The name of that book is called "Pearls of Wisdom: NBPME Part 2 Podiatry Board Exam".

As for the Part 1 board exams, Dr. Feelgood already recommended an excellent resource in his posting. One of those resources include First Aid for USMLE Step 1.

My boyfriends father has a close friend who is a Neurologist. One day she was throwing out all her study books that she used to prepare for the boards. My boyfriend got them all for me, so if you ever want to look through and see if there are any you could use I have a TON of them you could borrow. Especially since it's only my first year and I don't have to take the boards yet. :)

In addition to the USMLE Step One I would recommend looking over micro, path and pharm which is podiatry specific. Such as antifungal drugs etc. Good luck.
