“I am a subspecialist who did not apply via the FastTrack. I ordered Dr. Das’s book “Pass Your Oral OB/GYN Board Exam- 5th Edition” for general guidance regarding case list construction. It was very helpful in orienting me to the entire process. Since I’m not the traditional applicant, I had a few questions and I called her office. She personally returned my call, now that’s commitment! She is truly invested in helping shed light on the whole process. I am looking forward to taking her review course."
“I feel my success this year was from the brilliant words from Dr. Das. I bought her book and followed it to the tee.”
"I am 4th yr resident in Greenville, SC. I read the book you gave us when you came to do the practice oral boards this year while on a flight for a MFM fellowship interview. I was very stressed about the that what/when of collecting cases as a chief. I now feel much better! I started working on case log templates on the plane." - AL
"Thank you so much! That book was more help than anyone I have talked to, including fellows at the interviews!"
"I was advised don't even attempt the case list without your book. I bought your book the first week of July and I am devouring it with the anticipation of preparing correctly for my orals." -- EB
"I just bought 8 of your books to give to my graduating chief residents. I can't think of a better way to make a difference for their future." --ND
"Your book has been the 'light in darkness' for this journey." -- AR
"My preparation for the 2009 exam was plainly deficient. For days after the test, I just shook my head when I thought about it. In June this year (2010), as I scrambled to complete another case list, I ordered your book and reading it was like finding religion. I clearly hadn't grasped the magnitude of this test, and I certainly hadn't undertaken any strategy in my approach. For instance, it never occurred to me that I didn't HAVE to tolerate the restrictions and idiosyncrasies of the ABOG software. When I read your advice to create my own case list spreadsheet, I about fell off my chair with the genius of it! Every piece of advice just seemed so profound that I decided to start over with a new approach to this beast." -- JL
