    I'll be starting my intern year come July, and since I will have about a 20-30 minute commute I thought I might look into getting an audio program to help study for the boards. I"ve narrowed it down to NEMBR (http://www.emboards.com/audio.aspx) or this other one I found which I haven't seen mentioned much, Emergency Medicine Intensive Review from CMEinfo (http://www.cmeinfo.com/store_temp/proddetails.asp?prodcat=48)

    Anyone out there have experience with either as a study aid?
    In the meantime...I'll be enjoying the rest of 4th year!!! :thumbup:

    I'd recommend saving your money. If your program doesn't provide EMRA membership, join on your own.

    All EMRA members get free subscriptions to EM RAPs and EM Abstracts. I commute about 20 minutes each way and have been catching up on 6 years of EMRAPS. Great stuff.

    Both programs are outstanding. EMRAPS is sort of an audio digest (selected conference presentations from around the world) with expert commentary added in. EM Abstracts is two well know EM physicians discussing selected articles relevant to EM practice.

    BTW, if your program doesn't provide EMRA membership, it should.

    Take care,
    Jeff

    uh, what jeff said

    save your money. listen to EMRap. It is sort of aimed at residents anyway and has lots of good info, interesting lectures, entertaining commentary. Sometimes I dont know what the big words mean, but I get the gist of it I reckon.
