ABOG Oral Exam Study Tip

Lock your textbooks away. The only references you will need are Compendium, Precis, Prologs, and did we mention THE COMPENDIUM? These are the answer guides for your test. Contact if you need to order the newest version. A well-kept secret is to check in the back of the green journal, Obstetrics & Gynecology, every month for the latest updates to the Compendium. You'll really impress the examiner if you are that current.
