“Excellent test preparation for Child Psychiatry Boards and MOC! Many relevant questions with thorough explanations. The interface allows you to customize a practice exam which mimics the real thing! Highly recommended. I plan to use BoardVitals for future re-certification in Adult and Child Psychiatry. ”Brian Rockower
Preparation is the key to success when embarking on becoming certified in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Reviewing a pre-established blueprint will help you prepare for one of the most important exams you will take. The exam will consist of 250 multiple-choice questions in the following categories: Development (13-17%), Biological and clinical science (13-17%), Psychopathology/Classification (13-17%), Developmental assessment/Diagnostics (13-17%), Treatment (13-17%), Issues in practice (8-12%), Consultation (8-12%), and Prevention (4-6%). It will be comprised of six sections an take approximately five and one quarter hours to complete. You must sign a nondisclosure agreement before you begin testing which will be followed by on-screen instructions. Two types of questions are included on the exam, stand-alone and vignette. The stand-alone questions will not be associated with any other questions and you must select the single-best-answer for each question. If you are unsure of the answer for a stand-alone question, you can flag or skip it and return to it at a later time. Vignette questions are usually comprised of five – ten multiple choice questions that are linked to a common case either presented in text or video. You must answer each vignette question in order to proceed to the next question as answers to previous questions may be revealed in subsequent questions. These cannot be flagged or skipped and returned to later. You should answer each and every question even if you are in doubt. You will receive subtest scores as well as a total percent score. In order to pass the examination, you must achieve an acceptable level of performance on the total score. Keeping these points in mind will help you get ready for the big day.
