I would not know where to begin with article selection and I feel you spoon-fed this to us, which was AWESOME.  The exam had a good amount of research based questions and for those who have been out of school longer might not remember how to interpret confidence intervals, how to calculate specificity and sensitivity in conjunction with their clinical relevance, etc.” J. Garza 2012
