" Ashish, I didn't utilize the PBR as you recommended last year and I used other sources to study from. As a result, I didn't pass. This year, I used it as my main source of information and I went over it as many times as I could, trying to remember everything I could. I loved the mnemonics, the way key information was repeated in the “double takes,” and the way the book was organized. It streamlined my studying and helped to cement the concepts that the ABP wants us to know for the test.
I am a TERRIBLE test taker so I did countless questions, but the edge I had was PBR. The PBR helped pushed me over the top. I received great news last night from the ABP. I passed my exam! I can't tell you how many times I've re-read the email to make sure I wasn't dreaming!!!
Thank you for creating the PBR and also the PBR Facebook Crew. The FB Crew was a great source of shared knowledge and I can't tell you how many times my spirits were lifted from a simple posting and conversation on the FB Crew page, especially during the days that led up to the exam. It was also a great place to feel human, and to voice our frustrations and realize that we were not alone in this. We all shared the same bond, which was the burden of this exam.
For all of the above, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know I couldn't have passed without PBR. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief and start living my life again. My loved ones have me back, and I have the freedom to focus on the things that really matter in life now.
Thank you again for all your efforts. Your virtual presence was, and is, greatly appreciated by all of us."
