“Just wanted to add my thanks to the pile. I passed the neurology boards (with special qualification in child neurology), and BoardVitals was a large part of my study plan. I thought the questions were appropriately difficult, and I very much appreciated the feedback from your staff when I questioned a small minority of the items (the ones that were unclear or wrong were promptly corrected). Well done! Thank you, and if I decide to take the pediatric boards next year, I will know where to come!”

What is the format of the ABPN Certification Exam in Neurology with Special Qualification in Child Neurology?

The ABPN Certification Exam in Neurology with Special Qualification in Child Neurology is comprised of 400 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) in stand-alone and vignette format.

Stand-alone

Stand-alone questions are single best answer MCQ’s that are not associated with any other questions. These questions can be flagged for review or skipped. However, candidates cannot review questions in a section that has been completed.

Vignette

Vignette questions are typically two to five MCQ's linked to a common case that may be presented in either a short video clip (30 seconds to 3 minutes), or in text. Vignette questions must be answered in order to advance to the next question. Therefore, candidates can not skip vignette questions or review vignette questions after they have been completely answered.

It is recommended that candidates familiarize themselves with the examination functions by reviewing Samples Screens provided by the ABPN.

The pass rate for the 2017 Certification Exam in Neurology with Special Qualification in Child Neurology exam was 85% for first-time takers.
