100% MONEY BACK FIRST-TIME PASS GUARANTEE
Guess how many PBR members request money back from PBR every year?
LESS THAN 0.5%!
I FAILED the first time. I followed common advice given by others. I realized instantly that it was flawed when I entered the exam and I ended up failing by about 7-9 questions. I changed my strategies and scored 160 points higher the second time (380 to 540). All of my insights and EFFICIENCY driven strategies are now in the PBR. There is truly nothing else like it on the market.

For the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Maintenance of Certification exam (aka MOC, or recertification exam), the pass rate has been 100% for many years. For any years in which the pass rate was not 100%, the maximum number of first-time failures that we were notified of was 2.
For the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Initial Certification board exam, the national pass rate for first-time test takers has traditionally been about 80-85% (as reported by the ABP). PBR has a 100% Money Back First-Time Pass Guarantee, and less than 0.05% of our members have ever asked for their money back. Based on this information, PBR's first-time pass rate is estimated at well above 95%.
Because of how streamlined and efficient the PBR materials are, PBR is the perfect resource for first-time test takers as well as anyone who has failed. We have a high first-time pass rate, but we have also helped MANY pediatricians finally pass the boards after they previously failed the pediatric board exam once, twice, three times, four times, five times and even SIX times using other resources. Don’t believe us? Watch these videos now:
I went through a popular DVD course. In hindsight, it was a HORRIBLE use of my precious time. Like most study materials on the market, it was simply too overwhelming to allow for 3-5 quality reviews in a timely manner. The other popular resource that I had was MUCH too basic to allow for exposure to all of the board-relevant high-yield topics.
I’ve seen their paid advertisements on Google and read some reviews about it online. When I start to hear people talking about taking courses and watching DVDs, I get worried that they’re setting themselves up for failure because they’re spreading themselves too thin (the number 2 reason most people fail). To some degree, “less is more” for this exam. Focus on an excellent primary resource and know it inside and out!
Even though I failed the first time, I did so well the second time around that the ABP asked ME to write questions for them! It's a little insane, but I was happy to contribute several.
I think they are most representative of the questions you'll see on the boards, BUT there are MANY caveats! When it comes to PREP questions, please read the following CRITICAL articles:
YES! There is no physician-taught course that specifically addresses how to use TEST-TAKING TECHNIQUE to increase your board scores. The PBR Core Concepts in Test-Taking Strategies Webinar helps you instantly increase your board scores. You even learn how quickly eliminate answer choices WITHOUT reading the clinical vignettes and WITHOUT having significant medical knowledge about the disease process.
The PBR Core Study Guide is also FILLED with strategies, "PEARLS," links to high-yield images and mnemonics to help you EFFICIENTLY study for and pass your pediatric board exam.

Just fill out the from below and you’ll get two COMPLETE chapters (in full) directly from the PBR Core Study Guide. They’ll even be in PDF format so can print them out.
The free material is in a downloadable PDF format, the paid membership includes PDF-style scrolling formats of both books, and a searchable format of the Core Study Guide as well, but it cannot be downloaded to your computer. Take a look:
When it comes to PBR’s system to help you pass, I see the ABP content specifications for the pediatric boards as “outside material.” I’d say 80-90% of the content specifications are covered in the PBR material. However, my strong recommendation is that you do not get caught up with trying to cover every single topic in the content specs. PBR has has more than enough information in it to help you pass. Once you have used and mastered the PBR “roadmap to success” that’s outline in the front of the book, then start looking at “outside material.”
Most of our online resources come with 12 months of access (starting on the enrollment date) except for those resources that are specifically said to include access for other lengths of time (e.g., multi-year subscriptions, lifetime access, etc.). Some products come with access for 1 year, but once the content is used the access expires soon after. For example, our Full Online Test-Taking Strategies Course offers 7 videos. Once a video is "unlocked," you have viewing and replay access for up to 7 days for that video. The next video will stay "locked" until you're ready to watch it, or until your 1 year membership expires. If you have any questions about a specific resource, please contact us now.
We're very well-known for the personalized support that we offer to all of our members. Simply put, no other medical board review company offers the kind of support PBR offers. Most of our memberships are 1-2 years in length. During that time, you can expect an uptime of 99.99% for our website and your resources. You can also expect prompt and thorough responses to any access-related issues, upgrade requests and just about any other request. We're not supposed to be online over the weekends, but sometimes we just can't help ourselves. Also, depending on the types of memberships you have with us, you may also get the following during your time as a member: access to our ASK THE EXPERT question portals, early release access to our annual Corrections and Clarifications Guide, access to our ASK THE EXPERT webinars, access to private Peer-Assisted Group Deep Dive Calls, access to other live webinars, access to our regularly updated errata pages, access to our Facebook "Crew" group page and much more. We offer higher quality, greater efficiency and a personal experience. Got questions? Click here and fire away!
The American Board of Pediatrics initial certification exam is very tough. It's not uncommon to hear of pediatricians failing multiple times. Before the American Board of Pediatrics placed a 7-year limit on the time after residency that you are allowed to take the exam, someone even emailed me to let me know that they had failed ELEVEN times. Since the rule change, we commonly hear of people coming to PBR after they have failed 3, 4, 5, 6 and even SEVEN times.
So, we work diligently to guide them to a pass, but it's clear that if you fail this exam once, your chances of failing again are much higher than a first-time test-taker. Also, we've found that there is a tremendous difference between access and execution. Even those with the best of intentions often struggle with self-accountability to follow through with the plans we lay out for them. And many pediatricians with history of failing board exams tend to struggle with test-anxiety and other personal factors that fall under a unique set of challenged. So, while we can provide a proven roadmap to success, offer private consultation calls, and a live course, there are many more pieces that must come from the individual and are out of our control. For this reason, we do not offer a Money Back First-Time Pass Guarantee for repeat test-takers.
Having said that, we've helped many members pass after 3, 4, 5, 6 and even SEVEN times. I don't know of any "traditional" board review company that can say that. Our results are not surprising given the amount of time that we spend on our unique and personalized approach towards helping you pass. Especially with our high-risk members, we have a very guided approach to support them to the best of our ability.
So, while a Money Back First-Time Pass Guarantee can't be offered, we do offer a FEW OTHER GUARANTEES. If you are a repeat test-taker and you fail after purchasing the PBR Ultimate Bundle Pack, or a higher level resource, we’ll do the following:
To qualify, simply visit the guarantee page and register all of your product in the same time frame requested for first-time test takers.

I think joining forces with a study buddy is an excellent idea! That’s why I created PBR’s Facebook CREW! PBR members can use it to interact with each other, ask questions, share mnemonics, successes, fears, everything! It’s pretty awesome.
The PBR Facebook CREW! is an extremely interactive community of NEW and EXPERIENCED pediatricians filled with peers who are TAKING the exam this year AND with peers who recently TOOK the exam.
Traditional forums are difficult to navigate and keep up with. The PBR Facebook CREW! sends you an email notification as soon as a response comes in to your question. There’s encouragement and genuine educational and emotional support to keep you pushing through!
I simply can’t recommend it enough.
We're not interested in making or selling “fluff.” Good questions take time to create. PBR offers 50 extremely high yield questions that are EXCELLENT, and they cost LESS than $1 per question.
PBR members often comment on how the structure of the PRB questions remarkably mirrors the questions found on the American Board of Pediatrics initial certification and recertification exams.
It’s completely worth it. Plus, some of the material covered in the Q&A book is NOT in the Core Study Guide. I hope to create more questions soon. Regardless, please note that PBR’s Q&A book should NOT be considered practice material, but rather CORE study content.
If you download the free PBR chapters from this page, you'll immediately understand how the PBR focuses on EFFICIENCY.
I try to make sure that there is almost NO need for you to cross-reference topics across multiple study resources or chapters.
For example, while you’re studying about one of the “Diamond” diseases (e.g. Diamond Blackfan), you’ll also see notes about the other “Diamond” disease (e.g. Schwachman Diamond) right next to it as a reminder of other similarly named diseases. You’ll also be given a review of that subject, right there and then.
Another HUGE example has to do with images. Most people use Zitelli as an atlas. If you have to reading about a topic in my study guide, then look it up in Zitelli’s index and then reading about it in Zitelli, you’ll spend an hour reading about one topic. That’s extremely inefficient and adds countless hours to the > 200 hours most people spend studying for the exam. I’ve included high-quality image web-links to topics throughout the core study guide for quick referencing so that the process is streamlined and not redundant.
YES. It’s actually pretty cool. You can search for a SINGLE word within the 2000 topics and find it within seconds. If you choose a membership level that offers desktop access, you also instantly get access to the Core Study Guide by phone or tablet as well. The materials cannot be downloaded, and the Q&A book is only viewable on Flash enabled devices and desktops. Check it out!
In the future, Pediatrics Board Review will also release iPad-enabled iBooks and Kindle ready ebooks as well.
Again, there’s NO extra charge for access on your web-enabled devices once you become an online member.
PBR's pass rate has been 100% for multiple consecutive years for the pediatric recertification exam! for the
The information you need to know is the exact same for the initial and the recertification exams. I have written questions for the pediatric recertification exam.
Based on the American Board of Pediatrics’ requested format, it is my very strong belief that the pool of questions is the same. BUT, I do think that the recertification exam questions tend to be the ones that are more straightforward. That means you will not need to know as much detail for pediatric subspecialties.
Yes and NO!
