So now that the boards are pass/fail, the Oral surgery programs require a comprehensive basic sciences exam. Its supposed to be a type of NBME subject exam.

Anybody is taking it? If so what are the materials you use to study for it?

Thanks to everybody and anybody

I am using study materials from the USMLE step 1. You can get some CBSE specific stuff though. CBSE is by the same people who write the USMLE. As an aside, I have emailed about half the course directors in the country. They all say they are going to take this test seriously from day 1. Good luck to you.
