The shameless shilling of this course is getting annoying. I didn't take the course. I passed the boards on my first try. Most of you will too. Some of you need to practice, yes, but you don't need to take this course. Let me give you a 30-second -- and free -- set of tips: 1) Talk about a tough or unusual case you did that day out loud to yourself on the way home. Think about what you might have done differently. Think about what you might have done if something had gone wrong. Do this every time. If nothing else, this will make you a better doctor. If you're not sure, ask someone smarter and more experienced than you what they would've done. 2) Print out and know in gory detail all of the ASA practice guidelines. Read all of them. Twice. Three times. Commit them to memory. This is what you will fall back on if you get stuck in a scenario. This advice is gold and, without potentially being viewed as corrupting the test and getting myself in trouble with specifics, my rattling off perfectly one of the practice guidelines with regards to a particular complication in a scenario is probably what saved me from failing my first room. 3) There is probably at least one board reviewer close by to you, if not in your own program (mine had 3). Get to know them. Practice with them. They will give you pointers about what to say and what not to say. Keep it simple. "Yes" and "No" are perfectly acceptable answers. 4) If English is not your first or strongest language, figure that out now and get better at it. Don't speak your native tongue at home with your spouse and children. Don't watch TV programs in your native language. Practice your English. Ask people to help you with your pronunciation. If you don't understand a word or a phrase that someone says, don't be embarrassed to ask them to explain it to you or what they mean. There's no shame in that. 5) If you're not sure, say so. There's nothing worse than saying you're sure, not being sure, and being wrong in that scenario. These people are not just seeing you. They're seeing everyone else too. They are very smart. They are also seeing your body language and how bad of a liar you are. I said I wasn't sure when I wasn't, we moved on, and guess what? I passed. First time. Don't waste your money on these courses. Read, practice, and do the things above. And don't give any more money to Ho. He's already made enough on your fear. If you want to pay him, tell him you expect a full refund if you don't pass. If he won't offer you that, don't take his course.
