“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. ”Keith Johnstone
