User Reviews for First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Oral Boards PDF

  1. Bought this (First aid for the emergency medicine oral boards pdf) about 1.5 weeks before taking the oral boards. That’s definitely not enough time if you really feel like you need to study, but I’ve read enough to say that the cases are interesting, and pretty much the exact mix / flavor of things you’ll see on the actually boards. Full color, good charts/diagrams, overall easy/fun/helpful to read. My only hesitation is that, given something like a 95% pass rate for this test, and the fact that you completed all the written exams and residency, you probably don’t need to be stressing out about this one. You probably could get by just fine without studying at all. But if you’re like me, and trying to not study makes you way too anxious to actually follow through with it, this is a great book to have handy. It’s thorough enough that you definitely shouldn’t need to look anywhere else for more material. But it’s also broken into clear, self-contained chunks in a way that allows you to titrate the amount you want to study/read (they recommended something way overkill in my opinion, like a 2-3 month study plan or something. Come on, this is not Step 1 or even your inservice. Chill a little on this one, OK?). And, final point: by the time you register for the boards, buy plane tickets, food and hotel for this waking-nightmare of a weekend, you’ve probably spent $2,000 or more. So if this (First aid for the emergency medicine oral boards pdf) ~$100 book can even a little bit help reduce the chances of having to repeat this mess, then the cost of this book is pretty much irrelevant
  2. For me this was the best review book (First aid for the emergency medicine oral boards pdf). However, it IS outdated on some things. If they would make a new version it would get five stars. If you want concise dont get this one (get Okuda). I used both books and I must say I found errors in both (the new edition). I think the First Aid does a much much better job at preparing you for what you should actually say (good phrases/strategy/etc). The Okuda book is appealing due to the sheer number of cases. Don’t practice cases with non medical people though as it will not flow well with the Okuda book. The first aid is doable to study with someone of nonmedical background. The first aid is great for general medical review but some of the first line treatment medications have changed some. However you should already be up to date on resus meds. Studying is best done with both books in my opinion. The Chicago oral boards practice session is well well worth it also (just as an aside).
