To those of you out there who will be taking the oral boards in April who are starting to think about preparing for the big exam, I just wanted to give some advice. Please save yourself weeks of vacation and missed paychecks, as well as thousands of dollars in course fees. I read the book which I really believe was a massive waste of time. The guy appears to make all of his money off of fear and intimidation of his peers which is appauling. You can DEFINITELY pass without all of that nonsense. True story: I know four people who have taken the course. Of those four people, three have FAILED. Not that the course makes you fail obviously, but it just appears that it is not very helpful. Everyone have a happy New Years and hopefully I can lead a few of you towards a decision to save some serious time and money. Spend that money instead on a dozen bottles of Dom Perignon.
