You will be expected to answer 229 multiple-choice questions on the Child Neurology Recertification exam over the course of five hours. The time will be broken into four sections, each with 40-60 questions. The two types of questions you’ll encounter on the exam are stand-alone and vignette questions. Stand-alone questions are singular and can be flagged for review or skipped and returned to in the exam setting. Vignette questions are linked to a case or short video clip. These questions are sequential and therefore must be answered in order. You cannot skip these and return to them in the exam setting.
