“When I studied for the exam, I went to an ASAM review course (weekend course) and did their bank of ~500 questions 2-3 times prior to finding out about BoardVitals. When I purchased BoardVitals, I was impressed with the questions and lengthy vignettes. I think the questions you have reflect more of what is seen on the actual exam. I actually tossed all my ASAM stuff and focused on your question bank. I did all the questions 2-3 times prior to the exam. ”
