Binasa ko ang buong baby Harrison's tapos yung sobrang pakiramdam ko ay wala akong alam, binasa ko doon sa totoong Harrison's (at marami-rami yun!).

If it's any comfort, hindi iskul bukul ang PCP exam, unlike the medical boards. Yun nga lang, dahil hindi iskul bukul, kelangan ng totoong (naks) pag-aaral.

Greetings, Dencio.

I am sorry I was not able to reply at once.
Busy w/ career change from Internal Medicine to Stroke Rehabilitation.
I was fortunate enough to pass the Diplomate exam last 1995. :lol:

1. The important thing to do is concentrate on the subjects w/ more larger
distribution of questions:
During my time, Cardiology, Pulmonary Medicine, Infectious Diseases,
Gastroenterology and Neurology accounted for 80% of the questions.

2. Just read Harrison's and try to answer the accompanying reviewer-book of
guide questions. If you can answer 50%, you can pass the PCP exam.

3. During the exam itself, after reading the question at least twice, your
first choice is usually correct.

4. Have confidence in yourself. Just remember all the cases that you
have directly managed and presented on grandrounds and teaching
rounds. Your years of residency training will not desert you.

5. Most of all, PRAY hard.
Pray to the Almighty Lord before, during and after the exam.
Pray harder for the next 2-3 weeks while waiting for the result.

Keep in touch. :bye: :flag:

Hi Dencio,

I took the PCP sometime in 2002. The exam is quite hard. It goes without saying that you really need to read Harrison. But since it's so thick, just read the most common diseases. I never finished reading the book and managed to read only very few chapters like MI, pneumonia, and diabetes. If you took the mid-year PCP exams every year, you already know how the PCP gives exams. Try to concentrate on those topics that they usually ask. Other than that, everything is luck.

:cool: Dear Dencio, The best way to pass the PCP exam is to read (and to love reading) Harrison. Siya lang ang minahal ko during my residency days (1987-2000). Kaya pasado! Basahin ng 3 beses. Test yourself if you gain enough knowlegde by using reviewers as a test guide BUT be sure to check every answered question by going back to Harrison to verify your answers. Good luck!
