You’ve arrived. It’s the final year of your podiatric surgical residency. The job search has begun, or maybe it has ended. You are cruising. You have taken your in-training examinations. You’ve done well. . . or maybe you blew them off and aren’t sure how you stack up. Whatever the case, the final year of your training has arrived and the real board certification examination is looming.
We frequently hear: “Studying online and from multiple choice question banks is overkill; my attendings advised me to just study from textbooks like McGlamary’s”. While these are great resources and a solid foundation for your surgical knowledge – failure rates for the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) certifying examinations remain extremely high (Figure 1).
Studies have shown that test takers who utilize multiple choice question banks perform better on future examinations with multiple choice questions.
That’s where Board Wizards bridges the gap. The ABFAS is a modern examination that is wholly computerized and timed. Preparation should simulate this, remaining modern and easy to use. Board Wizards was created by podiatric physicians that envisioned the arduous task of ABFAS preparation as a simplfied and concise process.
The board qualification exam for ABFAS is different in that it is broken down into four distinct sections. As of Fall 2020, the candidates will take the actual examination in their 3rd year of residency. With four sections, failing can be a very expensive proposition that might add up quickly. Board Wizards covers all portions of the ABFAS examination.
To effectively perform on exam day, it is of the utmost importance that physicians become familiar with both the case based patient simulation (CBPS) and multiple choice portions. With over 1,000 multiple choice questions (we aren’t counting questions twice unlike other test banks!) and over +45 CBPS case work ups, the Board Wizards difference is clear.
Board Wizards is a feature rich software, that allows for timing your exams, tracking your progress, flagging questions for reviews, and studying with detailed explanations.
But is it worth the price?
Board Wizards is priced very fairly.
A long while back when we were first developing Board Wizards, we decided we were going to use quality web and software development coupled with the highest quality subject matter. We hope that those who purchase this product, purchase ONCE, and pass their examinations the first time, saving money on expensive re-takes.
Please note that a modern desktop or tablet browser is required for the best experience.
We wish you luck with the ABFAS examination!
