Urology Board Review Tips
BoardVitals offers a more granular approach to the categories in relation to the exam and we offer questions that are allocated to a number of categories. Note that these categories can be taken one at a time or in combination to create a custom exam. For the most realistic exam experience, users should set the BoardVitals timer to 60 seconds per question as the real exam requires 50 questions to be answered in an hour (a little more than a minute per question).
According to the ABU, this exam has a pass rate of approximately 90% for first-time examinees.
