    1. The exam has changed considerably since I took it. I kept preparation simple by using ExamKrackers books and doing as many practice questions as I possibly could.

  1. 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. 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! 🙂

    1. 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! 🙂

    1. 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. 🙂
