      This is one of the most asked questions in this forum, so search for oral interview or oral board will turn up alot of great advice from members.

      I do recommend you wear a suit, well groomed and practice at home with a friend or in the mirror. It's ok to be nervous, it's normal. But you don't want to be struck with "fear" either

      Good Luck
