I found that studying from the books worked for me. I would usually do 25 questions at a time..no more than that. Take a break for a while and do another 25 in a few hours. Choose your answer and then check it. If it's wrong, then look in the back of the book for the answer and the rationale. Usually you wind up smacking yourself in the forehead. Computer discs are goos ways to study also, although I didn't use them but know many who did.
I didn't go to any study seminars...the people I know who did said they were a waste of money. Also, when I took my boards, my computer also turned off after 75 questions. I took this to mean that I passes even though the Moderators said it didn't mean anything.
Also, there's usually a couple of "crutch-walking" questions thrown in, so look up the different techniques.
so many patients...
so little time.....
