What Our Members Have to Say

Clear preparation... Very high yield material... Amazing support... I highly recommend it!

I appreciated how PBR gave clear preparation advice and very high yield material for the boards. Following this advice, I felt I was adequately prepared for the exam. I also appreciated that the PBR Team, Ashish, and the Facebook Crew were an amazing support and helped to keep me motivated through the studying process. I highly recommend it!

A LOT of the questions were VERBATIM topics addressed in PBR!!

Wanted to drop a quick note of my success with the MOC exam using PBR... I really wanted something formal to study. Happy to report a scaled score of 289! Ten years ago, I used Med S**** - and although I passed easily, I found it to be very cumbersome and not really a lot of clinical or practical information. PBR was the exact opposite. Very Clinically relevant. I was really impressed with so many directly helpful tips. Kudos Ashish and PBR team on a great product. I am recommending your book to everyone!

Mentally prepare yourself for the commitment needED to pass the MOC exam

Since you could be tested on any topic within the field of pediatrics, you will focus your studying on a traditional board review study guide. While the types of questions will vary, the difficulty level will not be the same as the difficulty level of the Initial Certification exam. We recommend that you set aside 100-150 hours of your time to go through our materials two times (though many only go through it once).

As you start to prepare for the exam, please keep these things in mind:

  1. Your time is precious. Life gets busy, so try to map out your 150  hours of studying and be sure to avoid taking on too many extra responsibilities at home or at work. Also, use a multimodal approach to your studying. Make the most of your extra time in commutes with an MP3 audio course or streaming Online Video Course.
  2. Use concise materials. The recertification exam is easier than the initial certification exam. Avoid using dense materials to study. Use materials that give you just what you need to know (no fluff) and are explained in easy-to-understand language.
  3. Focus on test-taking strategy. You are no longer an elite test-taker, and perhaps you never were. When people prepare well but still fail the MOC Exam, it's usually because they lacked good test-taking strategy. Consider taking a test-taking strategy course.



We know how busy the life of a physician can be. Adding studying to that isn't exactly fun. So we cut out the extra information that is NOT needed to pass. With congruent resources working synergistically together, you can leverage your time at home, in the car, and at work.

Manageable & Repeatable

Learning requires repetition and reinforcement. Our members frequently share stories of going through the materials multiple times because of how concise everything is. You should go through the material at least once, and ideally twice. The curated content and PBR's straightforward language will allow you to easily review everything you need to know 1-2 times before your exam.


PBR's many resources were created to work synergistically together. Since our audio course, video course and picture atlas follow the order of the topics in our hardcopy content almost exactly, you get to learn in a multimodal way (which has been shown to increase learning) without feeling overwhelmed. 

It's The "Easy Way"

Board exams are never "easy", but knowing exactly what to do and how to do it will make the board preparation experience much more tolerable. We have a plan for you, and it's worked time and time again. So please do not study from multiple resources or attend a live course. That would be "the hard way". Use a streamlined system that helps do one thing; EASILY maintain your board certification.

MOCA-PBR is definitely the answer to breezing through the questions!

Many thanks for all that you do for us. It’s very difficult to find the right online resources to answer the questions within the time limits of MOCA-Peds, but I just finished my first exam using your MOCA-Peds review and I was very happy with my score (about 90%). I found that MOCA-PBR is definitely the answer to breezing through the questions and I definitely plan on sharing it with my peds colleagues!
