    Any one who has taken or is planning to take Peds Anesthesia boards: what study materials are you using. Any tip is helpful as well.
    Thanks

    The pass machine has a lecture series program, it's about $1000. It worked for me.
    It's ~35 hours of lectures with Charlie Cote et al. working the keyword list into themed groups. Cardiac was the most painful because it is such a broad topic and represents only a small part of the exam.

    I read first 12 chapters of Côte twice then reviewed cardiac and did well. The test isn't difficult.

    I haven't personally used it but I know some fellows who have tried the AnesthesiaQBank questions for their fellowship boards and found them reinforcing.

    It hasn't changed. Spend the grand, watch the lectures over a week or so before the test, get spoon fed all the keywords and high yield topics, and earn your P.
