    Thankfully passed the oral boards and have 2 books in excellent condition with no markings to sell much cheaper than can be found online:
    Pemberton: Ophthalmology Clinical Vignettes Oral Exam Study Guide II ($199.99 on Amazon)
    Friedman and Kaiser: Case Reviews in Ophthalmology ($52.85 on Amazon)
    Please message me if you're interested. I would like them out of my life.

    I found both of these books very helpful to prepare for the exam. I went through each of them twice, once through the pemberton book out loud and timed with a study partner. I used last minute optics and went to the Osler review course (mock orals only). I also used the Friedman review book and Wills as references. I don't know anyone (including myself) who felt confident coming out of the exam. The grading is so vague and shrouded in mystery that there is almost no way to know how well you did unless you manage to fly through all of the cases before the time is up in each room (not the case for me).
