I recently just finished the kansas state boards for licensure. It was hard but I thought fair. The first day they interview you for about 10 mins, and then you take a kansas state law examination. Then the second day you take a 45 minute practical (where patients have real pathology unlike national boards). Subsequent to this they adminster a written clinical examination similiar to the PAM of part III but harder. The written clinical exam is all fill in the blank (11 questions, but like 11 sub questions to each main question). I was barely able to get done, and most could only get through about 8 main quesitons.

Good luck to anyone in the future if they plan to take this exam.

I'll know in two weeks if I passed.
