I'm a long time lurker here on AN and I just wanted to comment regarding my experience with the AANP exam this evening. Prior to taking the exam I saw a lot of threads on the exam being really hard and people failing. I prepared myself with the Fitzgerald live class back in early September and dragged my feet on taking the exam until today. After the Fitzgerald live class, I did the rest of her online modules. I then simply read through Leik's review book and Fitzgerald's review book, cover to cover over the past couple of months. I'm horrible at studying and I am easily distracted by other more appealing things to do so this is why it took so long. When I sat down for the boards, there were some easy questions and some that I did not recognize, but overall, it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't stress about it and you definitely don't need to spend hours a day for months to pass this exam. I don't even think Fitzgerald's live class helped me at all. It was great as a clinical refresher and she is an intelligent woman, but there wasn't much on the exam that was in her class. I took the exam this evening and passed. Anyways, if you have any questions, let me know.
