Can see where it would be great for written boards. Used for MOCA and probably a little too comprehensive but covered almost all the topics on exam.
you need a lot of time to study for this book. It’s quite useful, complete and deep in the anesthesiology material. Some questions mention drug that they are in use nowadays but The Board still considers interesting. I recommend this book if you have time and prepare yourself with intention of passing that test.
I have been cherishing this book ever since I got it.
Indeed I love it and it is amazingly well written.
The Questions are all high quality. They include broad coverage of the advanced topics that we need to know to pass the board. I think this book will also help me ask good questions to my residents once I become an anesthesia attending in the near future.
The answers are smartly summarized all through the book. They are not written in a form of just a paragraph, but also contain figures, tables or bullets. For example: Page 373 has a table that summarizes condition (i.e. warfarin, hemophilia, vWD etc) vs. PT/INR, PTT, and more. Page 155 has a table that compares disease (MG, L-E myasthenic synd, myotonic dystrophy and Duchenne) and the responses to different classes of neuromuscular blockades. Most importantly, they are based on literatures that are up-to-date and trustworthy. It helps me learn and memorize important facts that are frequently asked.
