Most helpful book I ever read on this topic is the following:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Successful.../dp/0972556176

I believe it helped me big time in obtaining rotations, as well as in getting strong LORs (as I have been told by my interviewers). I do not know if I matched, but if I did, this book definitely helped my tremendously. Best thing, every advice is backed up by actual data from studies so you can trust it 100%! It gives you great confidence to follow the advice.

IMHO every IMG applicant should read it, the sooner in the application the better!
