“This Q-bank is awesome. When I used this bank for the first time, I said to myself 'oh wow' because I was missing little bits and pieces which I filled in with BoardVitals. These questions are hard but very similar to questions on NBME exams. I would strongly recommend BoardVitals for everyone who is studying for Step 1, 2, 3 and shelf exams. I used this bank for Step 1, and right now I'm using it for Step 2 and for my upcoming Internal Medicine shelf exam.”Nadia Badar
Pediatrics is generally consider on the easier side of the shelf exams. Most people use Blueprints for the Pediatric shelf exams in addition to BoardVitals Pediatrics Shelf Board Review Questions.
Pediatrics requires a score at the 11th percentile to pass.
It’s important to not only gauge how well you’re doing, but also to gauge how well you’re doing compared to other students. We’re the only Pediatric Shelf Exam provider to offer this level of detail. Each one of our questions has a ‘percentage correct’ score so that you can compare yourself to how other students are performing.
The real exam is in an old format – paper and pencil, but the time constraints are difficult. Pediatrics, especially, can be a little rushed. Use our timer to make sure that you’re meeting the time constraints.
