What Resources Do I Recommend?
The first two are review books. I recommend doing Fitzgerald during school and then doing Leik during your board preparation.
Do an APEA predictor exam at the beginning of your studies and towards the end. (The two pack is $55). Pocket prep can be used on the computer or on your phone. After a bit of studying, set up a one on one session with me or purchase system review videos to fill in the gaps in an area you find you are struggling with.
How long should I wait to test and how long should I study?
This is a very individualized response.
You may have a job waiting on you and need to test immediately, or in my case, need a major surgery you've been putting off til graduation.
I would recommend at least 1 month of intensive study either while finishing your program or following your graduation. You should do around 3,000 practice questions; more if you did not do well in school.
Don't wait months and months. Try to test within 3 to 4 months of graduating.
