User Comments

Here's some of the feedback that we received. You'll see a lot is good, but we also don't shy from complaints. Instead, we are learning from our students and physicians and are constantly evolving the BoardVitals application to be the best and most comprehensive study guide available. We're proud to keep beating the national average for pass ratings as well as our own marks.

"BoardVitals was very helpful and a great way to practice questions which really helped me passed. Very similar to the exam. Thanks for your help!!!" — 12/23/2014

"Excellent questions and test prep. Wish I'd used it sooner!" — 12/22/2014

"Some questions are too hard in BoardVitals. Explanation should be written in simple bullet points rather than in paragraphs which are difficult to read. Also there should be highlighting option in the questions and also in explanation for quick revision. Good thing that it is divided into multiple subsections which is easy to prepare. I am preparing for clinical neurophysiology subspecialty and would appreciate if BoardVitals also do prepare questions for neurophysiology and stroke which are the most commonly preferred subspecialty in the neurology (every year 450 members graduate from this programs combined). Thank you." — 12/21/2014

    Response from BoardVitals: We intentionally seek very difficult content - the best we can find. We did reformat a few of the lengthier questions, though we have been asked for longer explanations by others. We plan on leaving as much support material as possible for those that need it.

"Awesome awesome questions. Will continue to recommend." — 12/19/2014

"Thank you from a doctor who falls asleep in textbooks! Questions work best for me and your system was a lifesaver. Thank you again." — 12/19/2014

"It would have been nice to know that much of the content parallels "Comprehensive Review in Clinical Neurology: A Multiple Choice Question Book for the Wards and Boards." — 11/17/2014

    Response from BoardVitals: Yes, we use ‘Comprehensive Review in Clinical Neurology’ as a reference on about 70% of our questions. It’s highly relevant content that we have added to in order to build the best question bank available. We’ll try to make it more apparent to customers that we reference the text so heavily.

"The platform became progressively slower as I went through the questions. It also forced me to wipe my old questions and restart." — 12/19/2014

    Response from BoardVitals: Sorry about that. Our system tries to identify the next best question for you, and it was running slow. We’ve re-worked the system so that it performs much faster, even after you’ve taken many exams. Sorry for the trouble!

"Reflected exam well, broad range of topics." — 12/19/2014

"The questions were more difficult than the exam." — 12/19/2014

"I have recommended, and will continue to recommend BV to the many people I'm in contact with, both at MGH and elsewhere. As I have now seen the content of the actual board exam I cannot comment on board content but suffice it to say the results speak. BoardVitals made studying for boards painless and effective." — 2/24/2015
