    ACE Q’s are not that good for board prep

    1. Rishi says

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I think what it boils down to is doing thousands of practice questions from any source you can find.

    Thank you for your posts. Did you use Big Blue? What do you think about it? I’m wondering if I should purchase it also to help me prepare for the written board exam (Part I). Thanks!

    1. Rishi says

      Hey Sandy! I skimmed through some of the Big Blue topics, and they’re pretty good. I feel like it’s the same problem as med school – too many resources, too little time. Just pick a few reviews and master them! 🙂

    Have you ever used TrueLearn? Studying for basic and freaking out…

    1. Rishi says

      Hey Billy!

      I didn’t use TrueLearn until after the ABA Basic exam. ACE questions, Hall, and M5 were more than enough coupled with reading chapters from Miller and Barash. Good luck! 🙂

    Great list! Thanks Rishi. 🙂

    Any thoughts about the latest edition of Clinical Anesthesia Procedures of the Massachusetts General Hospital? Or the Anesthesia Guide?

    1. Rishi says

      Thanks Patrick! I honestly don’t know anything about either of those books. I’d imagine most of their content is also found in the texts I mentioned. Guess it depends on your preference. 🙂
