“Test Day” can be a terribly stressful and anxiety provoking time for the pediatric board exam. The key to avoiding that stress and anxiety is to have a solid foundation and to make the experience almost mechanical. The only way to do that is to become so familiar with your pediatric board review course that you know it inside and out.
PBR's 2018 pediatric board review course is a complete SYSTEM, including an online, offline, personal, and community-driven EXPERIENCE. As physicians, we're trained to tackle hundreds to thousands of pages in order to learn “everything.” But this is the WRONG approach to studying for the boards. We're also taught to read questions from the top, cover the answers and take a “top down” approach on vignette style board questions. This, too, is HORRIBLE advice.
PBR helps you streamline your approach and gives you a proven method to pass your pediatric board exam. Through Pediatrics Board Review, you will:

Through videos like the one below, you will begin to quickly understand why PBR is not a “traditional” pediatric board review company. We're focused on helping physicians in ways that have never been done before. In the video below, I share with you the arrival of the NEW 2018 Edition of the PBR Core Study Guide, the NEW 2018 Edition of the Question & Answer books, two NEW Test-Taking Strategies Course, and some other exciting news!

As a pediatrician, when you work with a traditional board review company, you will most likely get a hardcopy study guide, perhaps a pediatric board review DVD course, and you may attend a live board review course. Then, you will likely decide that you would also like to buy resources from yet ANOTHER company so that you have it as a reference, or so that you don't miss out on additional topics/content. And if you're really ambitious, you might even keep a copy of Nelson's closeby so that you can go through it once prior to the boards.
You will usually make an effort to study as much you can, from as many resources as you can. You do so in isolation because of competing demands on your time (work, spouse, kids, social obligations, sleep), and you have a difficult time coming up with a good study schedule that you can actually stick to.

So, I'd like to start by simply stating a fact.
Live pediatric board review conferences ARE BROKEN!
The traditional board review courses surely served their purpose in the past, but given how much technology we have at our disposal these days, they no longer make any sense.
Here's the kind of feedback I’ve heard from former Pediatrics Board Review members who went on to pass the pediatric boards after they had previously failed the pediatric boards while using other board review materials, including 3-6 day live conferences:
“I spent $2000 or more on the conference alone, plus airfare, hotel, and car rental. Not to mention the time off I had to take from work. That was one expensive headache!“
“Do I really need to know about the 5 subsets of eczema? The subspecialists talked about so much random stuff that it left me lost.”
“I was essentially being forced to consume eight hours of content per day for three days on their schedule, and in their environment.”
“The material was so broad that I had no idea how to summarize it into just what I had to know for the boards. And if I zoned out for a few minutes, I had no idea if I missed something crucial or not.“
To summarize some of the above sentiments, and some of my own, I’ve put together this list of reasons why traditional board review conferences are so flawed.
Unlike other board review courses, the PBR's Core Study Guide gets corrected and updated EVERY year. Many of the corrections and clarifications of the current 2015 edition are are made available to the PBR community here, and they will provide a sneak peak into the 2016 edition as well.

Every year I like to go through all PBR error submission and send corrections to PBR members before the initial certification exam. It’s an EXTREMELY time consuming task (takes several full days), but I believe it’s worth it.
Although the information in this corrections area SHOULD NOT make or break your test-experience if you have followed the PBR Efficiency Blueprint, several test-takers have previously said Click Here And Continue Reading…
