“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." JG

"Dr. Das, this will be my first time taking your, or for that matter, any board prep course. You were recommended to me by a colleague who was impressed by the thoroughness of the material presented as well as the one-on-one attention during and after the course. She recounted several encounters with you personally that I think she found especially helpful in feeling calm & confident prior to the test. That is what I am hoping for as well...something to calm this constant knot in my stomach."
