Christmas Break and Boards

I hope everyone had an amazing break with their friends and family! This Christmas break was a little different than most, as I had to study for the Part I Chiropractic Board Exam. Although I was lucky enough to travel to Cabo San Lucas with my family, I was enjoying the weather and drinking a margarita while studying biochemistry, neuroanatomy, and physiology.

Once I returned home from Cabo San Lucas in early January, I studied about seven hours a day, until I eventually took the exam on January 15th. The exam itself and the process of beginning the exam was very stressful, as you must have your ID with you and your key to your locker at all times. Once the exam began, time seemed to go so fast for each section of the exam. The Irene Gold Part I National Board Review Book that I utilized clearly went through all of the material that I was tested on ultimately, which I was grateful for.

After completion of the exam, you have to wait for a month for results, which is definitely torture. Although I feel the exam went well, there is a small part of my brain that is worried about it at all times. Studying for boards feels daunting, but I recommend picking one study book that works for you, and just powering through it to the best of your ability. Some people do a lot of practice questions, some people solely focus on the study book and re-learning material from almost two years ago. Study hard, and I believe all of us will be successful!
