“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
Surgery Shelf practice questions are a great way to make sure you’re ready for the exam, especially if you’re scoring higher than your peers. We make sure that every question tracks how well others are doing so that you make sure you meet the percentile threshold. We also offer a pass guarantee on all of our shelf exam question banks.
Surgery in general is not a harder exam than the other shelf exams. Like many of the shelf exams, there is an emphasis on ‘next best’ questions... focus a portion of your study time on the next best action to take. Several of the physicians we interviewed indicated that it was their easiest exam. It’s 100 MCQ, and you’re given 130 minutes, so you’ll need to move quickly, and a couple of physicians ran out of time in the process.
