    I graduated on May 24, 2006 and took my boards on June 29, 2006. I would have to say that the Saunder's book was the best! Passed with 75 questions.

    Graduated May 6th, took boards (and passed) July 29th. I used Kaplan online, Saunders, and Mosbys. I did about 4000 questions I think and only worked 2 12hr shifts per week. The last 3 weeks before my test were the most intense in terms of studying. I made sure to really crank up the # of questions during that time.
