Welcome back to Episode 16! With the In-training exam next week, we are doing things a little different this week. Instead of covering new material before the exam, we are launching three episodes, back to back, reviewing the most high-yield points that we have covered so far, organized by topic. We think this extra layer of spaced repetition will help you gain a few extra points during your test. We have set it up in a quiz format, so you can pause the podcast as you go along.

Welcome back to episode 15! As promised, we are back to our weekly episodes leading into the ITE. We start this week with a rapid review of some of the infectious disease high-yield points that we have covered in the past few months, and then we dive right into the new material. Stay tuned for some comical outtakes at the end of the podcast for an inside look at the recording of Roshcast. We think you will enjoy it. Let’s get on with the rapid review.

Welcome back to Episode 14! After a short break for Jeff’s honeymoon, we are back this week with more high-quality review. We have weekly episodes in the works to keep you motivated. Take note of a small change to the format this week – after each question, you will hear a one-second pause to contemplate the answer or to pause the podcast to give you even more time. We made this change in response to listener feedback; keep more feedback coming to Roshcast@roshreview.com.

I think it’s exceedingly important to learn your personal test-taking style. There isn’t one right way to do this. One person’s methods may not work for you. I think the trick is to be honest with yourself about what works and what doesn’t, to not feel pressured to use a specific method that doesn’t feel comfortable, and to constantly reassess what is working and what isn’t. You can’t be afraid to change directions and consider something different. A major exam is a marathon, not a sprint.

Welcome back to Episode 12! This week we once again continued our theme based review. We focused on a few high-yield bites and envenomation. This material is easy to gloss over since we do not come across it too often clinically. Not only will this prepare you at the bedside, but it will also help you pick up a few easy points on the In-Training Exam, which, by the way, is right around the corner.

Consider pausing the podcast briefly and quizzing yourself as you are listening. Do not forget to check out the blog for the other episodes as well as a few new Rosh Quizzes. Lastly, learn some tricks from the high-scoring test-taker Ryan Ribeira, MD.
