    Hi,

    I am an optometry student in Qeensland, Australia (US citizen). I would appreciate if you could let me know where to buy books for the board exam step 1. I heard that Berkley Guide is good for the first exam but I have no idea where to buy it. If anybody wants to sell yours to me please let me know, or just tell me where can I get it.

    Thanks a lot

    Hi,

    I bought mine through AOSA (American Optometric Student Assoc.). If you don't have a membership, then I suppose you can contact the UC Berkley School of Optometry. The Berkley Guide was made by the OD Students at their school of optom.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    Well I don't think I am writing the American Boards, but I can tell you what some of my classmates did (they all passed).

    Basically just study from your notes and the Berkley guide. Part 1 isn't all that difficult, and your professors and the guide should cover all the bases. Just try to make sure you give yourself enough time to review :)

    Good luck!
