It’s so difficult to buckle down and study for another in-training exam (ITE), but the next one I’ll take will be somewhere between February 18 – 22, 2016. With about three months till then, I need to find the motivation to study!
As a CA-1, I was extremely motivated and did pretty much every popular question bank in addition to taking notes from Barash’s Clinical Anesthesia. Having spent much of the latter part of my CA-1 year and CA-2 year thus far reading Miller’s Anesthesia textbook, I feel that I’m beginning to integrate topics at a much deeper level. Hopefully this will pay off on the exam, and more importantly, as a senior resident.
Statistically speaking, CA-2s tend to achieve the highest percentiles on the anesthesiology ITE, so I’m hoping I maintain that trend! My plan is to go through Faust’s Anesthesiology Review, review all the notes I took last year, and scramble to find questions I’ve not done (maybe the latest ACE questions).
Go Texans! 🙂
