According to the ABPN Certification Exam in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Content Blueprint, the exam covers the following topics:
The BoardVitals Child Psychiatry Question Bank follows the content outlined in the ABPN Certification Exam in CAP Content Blueprint.
The exam consists of 280 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) in two formats: stand-alone and vignette.
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 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 Child and Adolescent Psychiatry was 87% for first-time takers.
