Re: How well prepared did you feel upon graduation?
I think by the middle of 2nd year you feel prepared for most cases. There is a certain amount of panic as you start working and you are suddenly on your own, but you realize it's like riding a bike and you actually know what to do in 99% of situations.
And guess what, if you aren't comfortable with something going on, you have an attending to call...that's why they make the big bucks! Most difficult course was either anesthesia practice which was mostly physiological considerations for cases, or physics. They were all much easier than something like o-chem.
