2016 – 2018 Testimonials

July 5, 2018

Dear Just Oral Boards,

Thank you so much for you help in preparation for this test. I decided I needed help after struggling on my own — I turned to Just Oral Boards after discussion with many of my peers who used this program to pass. I selected track six and got to studying and practicing with the just oral board examiners. I soon realized how deficient I was in certain area and it motivated me to read further and push myself. This course is great because the most of the examiners are veterans in proctoring the exam and give you direct feedback. I am forever grateful to all of my proctors at just oral boards for there time and advice. Repetition, rereading, and reciting are key to passing to get over the anxiety of the exam and speed of the exam during test day!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

The best way to prepare for the oral boards is to simulate the real exam with someone who can give personalized feedback. Most people don’t have this type of resource, especially being in private practice so Just Oral Boards is the next best thing. Despite having a busy work schedule in addition to having two young children, I sent requests to Dr. Tran for the days and times that worked best for me. The Skype sessions were exactly what I needed to pass because the JOB examiners were able to identify my knowledge gaps and weaknesses, so over the course of track 6 and the 3-day weekend course, my improvement was dramatic and ultimately led me to become a board-certified anesthesiologist after having failed the oral boards prior. I highly recommend JOB to first-time takers and repeat takers because there is no other professional prep course that gives you the flexibility while providing the high-yield simulation of the oral boards. Thanks again to Dr. Tran and all the JOB examiners I worked with who helped me pass!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

Comparing your program with other review books and programs, nothing can compare to performing mock oral exams one-on-one. I received great advice on both the quality of the knowledge in my responses to questions as well as my delivery of those responses. The mock orals really simulated the real exams and helped me thoroughly prepare with both practicing giving answers and thinking through how to approach the exam. I also used the JOB manual which provided a good source to quickly review multiple subjects the last week leading up to the exam!

Thank you,

Dear Just Oral Boards,

JOB works! I failed last year after being told that I was ready and had all the tools to succeed. It wasn’t until I did the mock stems with the JOB examiners that I actually understood what tools were needed to be prepared for this exam. The mock exams were challenging and made me feel defeated at times. My examiners were tough on me, and I could not be more appreciative. The stems provided covered every component of anesthesia and then some. When exam day came, I remembered having come across 95% of the material in this course. I am beyond ecstatic that I passed and without reservation believe that this success came with the help of Dr. Tran and his incredible team. I am forever grateful and indebted.

Dear Just Oral Boards,

Your series of four examinations with immediate and thorough feedback was the perfect way to consolidate, organize and apply all of the information I’d been studying. And the ease and convenience of scheduling made it simple to find the time to work with you. It was no doubt the most important step of my preparation for the test day!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

The mock oral exams provided are of the highest quality a student can receive. The examiners are able to reproduce what the exam is truly like and it really helped me with not only my test anxiety but how to focus the knowledge I already have to answer questions that can seem impossible. I recommend this course to everyone, whether it is your first time taking the exam or you need to take it more than once. I was able to easily tackle each obstacle the real examiners through at me because of my practice through this course!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

I don’t ordinarily write testimonials but I really had to in this case. I took Part 2 several times and each time was a fail for different reasons. At first, it was from an absence of preparation. Then it was because I wasn’t practicing enough. Finally, the penultimate time I took it, I thought I knew my stuff and had practiced enough and still a FAIL. I was beyond frustrated. I had been told about the J.O.B. course before but I was too stubborn to sign up. But at this point I was desperate. I’m really pleased to say that after taking J.O.B., the dreaded email post-Part 2 Exam finally said PASS. I would attribute this to a couple of things. Firstly, the course material presented the massive amounts of information that you need to internalize and recall in a very readable and useful manner. It was detailed, but not too detailed, which made recollection of the knowledge needed to answer questions easier. Secondly, the meat of the course are the Skype sessions in which you are able to not only practice but also get feedback from a diverse group of individuals. The combination of the factual knowledge as well as repetition and practice as well as critique, I thought really helped me pass this time. I wish I had taken this course for my first attempt. It would have saved a lot of time and anguish.  Thank you again!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

Taking your course was the best decision I ever made. I had tried other prep courses in the past without success and was getting quite discouraged. Your course allowed me to practice with people who could give me good feedback and the stems covered a wide range of relevant topics that really helped me feel better prepared when I got to the actual exam. It made a huge difference for me and I would highly recommend it. Thank you to the whole JOB team!

Dear Just Oral Boards,

I wish I knew more about this course before. I had no idea ALL the material and anesthesia topics are covered as you progress in the mock orals. I wasted time studying on my own because I was afraid to miss material or lack of knowledge. I would recommend my peeps to do the full track (What I should have done from the beginning).

Dear Just Oral Boards,

Your series of mock exams and critical feedback made the biggest impact in my preparation. Although I also practiced with friends and colleagues, the JOB scenarios most realistically simulated the testing challenges (if not exceed in difficulty).  The JOB faculty focused on how to answer the different types of questions appropriately and efficiently.  It was a challenging experience but absolutely worth it. The actual exam actually felt better (easier) than many of the JOB exams. I would not have gotten the same preparation experience otherwise.  This course was HIGHLY recommended to me, and I wholeheartedly endorse them as well to anyone considering professional preparation for this exam.  Many thanks to the JOB team!
