Referred Journals (The last 5 years ending January 1 of the year the exam is taken)
Please note that items drawn from current journals (with a 5 year look back period) are 1) from a journal on the RVS Reading List, 2) the question is drawn from the abstract only, and 3) the journal abstract must be inexpensively obtained. The exception to this is Veterinary Clinics of North America (if applicable), where the exam taker is responsible for the whole article.
(The most current edition of the text should be used.) – pick one medicine, one lameness, one reproduction and one surgery book since you will not have time to cover all.
