Tips and Tricks for the Family Medicine Certification Exam

Unlike board exams for the other specialties, you are able to review previous items and change answers. However, in our experience, when physicians go back to modify questions, they often change their answer from the right one to the incorrect one. Unless you're sure of an answer change, focus on the questions ahead, and not the ones that you have already answered.

At about 1 minute per question, make sure to pace yourself! This is feedback that we get from Family Medicine students all the time. We suggest using a portion of our question bank as an actual exam with one minute per question to get a feel for the pace. Remember that there is no brand new information… focus on established medicine.

In addition to the BoardVitals Family Medicine question bank and the Family Medicine Certification Exam Test Plan Specifications, make sure you review the Exam Preparation videos and documents provided by the ABFM.
