    I’m reading the UBP books, are there any good apps out there to use while in the OR/during downtime?

    Have the Kindle app on my iPhone and Kindle Fire to pull up Yao and Artusio Anesthesiology text, which I highly recommend. Also working my way through UBP before test in March.

    What’s everyone doing for this applied section? Just going over the information listed on the ABA site?

    Pretty much, be sure to watch the (often unintentionally hilarious) videos as well. Id expect some hiccups for the first few administrations, probably gives the examinee a bit of wiggle room.

    I would recommend doing justoralboards. Do as many exams as you can. No book helps here, just practice with the right people

    I second JustOralBoards (JOB). I and most of my colleagues had a a solid experience with the program. Reading books is important for content, but not for actual case performance. That just came with practice, and actually understanding what examiners were looking for, which I learned from the JOB program.

    Yeah! You do. Trust me. Their book is pretty damn good. I went through it a few times. Has some practice exams and info on how to 'dissect the stem' and actually anticipate the right questions based on whats in the stem. I used that technique a lot. Like for sickle cell, i dissected like the justoralbook taught me and was able to guess before i entered the room the most likely questions. Almost everyone i thought they'd ask they ended up asking. Highly recommend working with Ruchir Gupta as your examiner with them. tough dude, but really helps a lot.

    To give another data point along the lines of the post above, I had the chance to work with a lot of the instructors, and I found that to be the best way to diversify my preparation. Primarily because at the of the day the manual is a book, and reality may vary. So I wanted to be sure to try using the techniques in the manual and see how each interviewer reacted to them so that I could have more experience with different styles and line of questioning.
