    “It was the kick start I needed to really focus. Lectures were really focused on high yield board information. It forced you to focus in a classroom, really actively learn, and was a great resource to review info closer to the exam.” —Sameeia Iqbal, MD

    Overview of what you get and how you can interact during the online course

    Every lecturer includes "audience response" questions within their lecturers, these will help you focus your study on topics you need to brush up on. All of these audience response questions (and their answers) are included in the course syllabus.

    “It does a great job of letting you know where your weakness are, and helps you find ways (including providing resources) to help you remedy your weak spots." —Peds Course Attendee

    Our Cardiology Speaker, Dr. Ralston, got excellent reviews from Peds course attendees

    Mohannad Mannaa, MD | Pulmonary Medicine

    "PHENOMENAL! Enjoyed his lecture very much."

    The course helps you get a focused review of ABP content outlines

    We scale which topics you study (more or less of) based on the exam content outline. That means that the content in our course will be reflective of what you’ll see on the exam.
