“I used the online BoardVitals and found that the 600+ questions for my specialty were pretty comprehensive with answers to each question and a convenient monitoring of my progress. I could choose as short or long a test as desired and then review missed questions to hone areas requiring more review. It is also quite affordable and perhaps most importantly really preps you for test-taking skills.”Steven Taylor
Beginning in January of 2014, the requirement for re-certification is an exam that is taken every 10 years. The exam is strictly multiple choice GI questions with the single best answer – focused primarily on patient scenarios. The pass rate on the re-certification exam is one of the lowest for ABIM administered exams (the 2010 pass rate was only 84%). Based on survey findings from the AGA, the best mode of improving performance on the exam is taking more questions. Our 800+ MOC GI question bank covers many of the content categories that are on the exam.
The GI Exam proportions, by category are published by the ABIM:
Be prepared to see lab results, videos, and images. Our question bank provides these for practice on the relevant media formats. We suggest the Mayo Clinic GI and Hepatology Board Review book to use in conjunction with our question banks. We cite references on many of the questions and suggest a companion GI board book for additional reading.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBIM OCC continuous certification exam.
