    What do you think is the best way to prepare for the OPP Portion of COMLEX?

    I highly recommend this board reivew book written by Steve Simmons, D.O. He trained in family medicine, is doing a sports medicine fellowship, and was a former OMM teaching fellow. It's in depth enough for all three parts. It's available at:

    I was recommended this OPP (Osteopathic Principles and Practices) review book for COMLEX called OPP Crunch. They have a web page at

    I'm thinking about taking a board review class, but I'm not sure which one will be high yield.

    I think that the performance based COMLEX is a good idea. The USMLE people are doing it too. After observing the clinical skills of some residents, I get the feeling most med students blow off clinical skills labs in med school.
     
  7. I agree with David that Dr. Simmons is awesome. Didn't know about the new DO OMT book... when did it come out?

    Good luck to all COMLEX2 takers.....

    Is COMLEX level one soon to become a computer based exam?

    I here that it is under consideration. They did a survey of DO students a couple of years ago and most were actually against a computer based exam and wanted to keep paper and pencil----I don't know why...

    You would think the students would perfer the computer based exam because it would only be a one day exam similar to USMLE.
