Reviews
Review Quotes
'I believe that nothing will better familiarize the future examinee with this format than simulation and simulating this format as often as possible. In this regard, Okuda and Nelson's Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review Illustrated shines, by providing more than 100 cases for review. ... The number and scope of cases is excellent. ... When compared to Carol Rivers' Preparing for the Oral Board Exam in Emergency Medicine, perhaps the most popular review book in this field, Okuda and Nelson's book provides many more cases: 109 versus 18. In preparation for the oral board exam by simulation is you goal, I would definitely suggest this book; I know that I will be using it.' Academic Emergency Medicine
