Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Jeffrey C. Livingston, MD (University of Tennessee at Memphis College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a basis for data collection, study preparation, and test taking strategies for oral examinations given each November.
Purpose: The purpose is to help provide guidance to individuals preparing for the oral Obstetrics/Gynecology Board Exam. There is limited supplemental information about preparing case lists, etc., for boards, but this book does have an organized approach to guide exam preparation.
Audience: It is written for practitioners in obstetrics/gynecology preparing for the examination. Although some information about exam topics is hearsay, it appears the editor has done her research.
Features: This book covers the process of preparing for, collecting data for, and taking the boards. It demonstrates the best way to collect patient information and to record it in a way consistent with ABOG policies. Topics often discussed at Board exams are presented, allowing the reader to plan study time on both case lists and general knowledge.
Assessment: How did I ever pass Boards without this book? The exam candidate is walked through preparation in a step-by-step, logical process. There are hints on case list presentation style and tips for survival once the candidate reaches Chicago and exam day. Because this book is written in a relaxed style, the reader is convinced he/she can pass the exam if adequate time is put in for preparation.
