    Not too bad, a few I had no idea, most I knew, and the rest I could make an educated guess.

    Not bad... I was expecting a lot worse. But then again I have no idea how I did. I have to say those were some really low-res pictures :thumbdown: .

    Yeah there were several where I would have been clueless without the history in the question stem.

    Agreed. I felt that the Xrays were crappy. The EKGs were good quality. The U/S were also crappy quality. Def hard about as tough as peer 7 iMO with some random ass Qs.. Overall tough but fair with a few Qs from left field.

    I thought the exam was very challenging. A couple og gimme questions. But a lot of questions that had me scrating my head. This was my first inservice exam. Atleast I know what to expect next year.

    Do you know when we are going to get our scores?

    Okay so I'm only in my first year...

    But I felt completely stupid. Seemed like the questions were pretty straightforward -- not too tricky -- but it was very much either I knew it or I didn't. Not a lot of sitting around and figuring it out.

    Glad its behind me.

    As I said in the other thread, edit out the test information in your post.

    I found the test to be quite reasonable and significantly easier than Peer VII. I totally expected it to be harder. I expect to be in the range where it correlates with passing the boards, but who knows I suppose??!!

    My only studying since residency started has been the Peer VII, and I did it over the previous 2 months before inservice.

    I'm with you, Corps. I though PEER VII was out of control. Talk about WTF questions. I thought the exam itself was very straightforward and, for the most part, well written.

    I thought it was a little easier than last year. Hopefully, that means I just might have learned something last year. Or, it could just be that the test was actually easier. :)

    Take care,
    Jeff
