“I believe that your cardiology questions were very instrumental in my passing the recertification examination. The content of your question bank was nearly identical to that of the ABIM test. Your format duplicated the actual exam, which allowed me to practice taking several series of test on a computer screen (which was not like what I did when I took the certifying exam 10 years ago). I would recommend your format to anyone taking a certification or recertification exam in cardiology. ”

Cardiology MOC Exam Info and ABIM Exam Pass Rates

The Cardiology MOC exam is one of the harder recertification exams. In 2015, only 88% of First-Time Takers of the ABIM Cardiovascular Disease MOC Exam passed.

The exam is comprised of 240 multiple choice questions (MCQ) in single best answer format. Of the 240 questions, 40 are new questions that will not count towards the candidate's score. The exam will take approximately 10 hours which is divided into four sessions. Each session contains up to 60 questions.

To familiarize yourself with ABIM exam question format, we recommend reviewing the ABIM's Cardiovascular Disease Certification exam tutorials.
