    Trying to decide between both. Can anyone comment on if/how they found them useful for oral boards?

    Thanks much.

    all I did was read through ultimate board prep and took notes and practiced answering the typical questions i.e. how to induce a difficult airway, treating MH things like that and I passed.

    I found that Just Oral Boards was really thorough, especially their student manual book. Some of my colleagues used them as well as other who UBP and the consensus was still just oral boards for advising the CA2s.

    UBP all the way. The answers can be very detailed, and on the real exam you won't have enough time to give the thorough answers that UBP gives; however, virtually every question I got on the real exam was in UBP in one form or another. Ultimately, pick one source, and stick with it. You don't want to overwhelm yourself with numerous sources.

    Justoralboards.com all the way. I can't stress enough how great they are. I believe they have the highest pass rate, but obviously theres no way to independently confirm this. Not shocking if it were true.
