These Board Review Books Are The Best!

"Your book more than anything helped me pass the pediatric boards by giving me high-yield easy to remember facts."

After multiple attempts to pass the Pediatric Boards over the course of the past 4 years, I began to give up. The last time around I missed the cutoff by 4 points!! I finally decided to try Laughing Your Way to Passing the Pediatric Boards a I picked it up and read it from cover to cover and realized how I had not seen the salient features of what the boards was asking me. Your book more than anything helped me pass the pediatric boards by giving me high-yield easy to remember facts. I just got my results back today (12/13/12). After horrible scores (I hang my head in shame) I scored in the 250 range (need 180 to pass). YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent Neurology Board Review Book

"I just wanted to thank you for your excellent Neurology review books"

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent Neurology review books. Of all the resources my wife and I read to pass the Neurology Boards, your book was the most informative and more importantly was fun to read. Many of the points you mentioned showed up on the exam. The question and answer section was great! Thanks again! I even convinced a student to purchase the book for the RITE exam (residency in-service training exam) and last I heard it was a big success! Your review book seemed to be the only one that was in touch with the ABPN (American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology) content specifications. Thank you for giving me all of the facts I needed to pass the boards and realize my life long dream!

I passed using the best pediatric board review book on the market

"After 3 failed attempts to pass the Pediatric Boards, I used your books. I just received notification that I passed. Thank you!"

After 3 failed attempts to pass the Pediatric Boards, I used your books. I just received notification that I passed. Thank you!

Focus on what is important in (review of Neurology Questions and Answers)

Your Neonatology Question and Answer book made all the difference

Thank you!!! What else can I say. Your Neonatology Question and Answer book made all the difference. It is well organized, with questions that really prepare you for the exam! I am a nurse practitioner and the book was suggested to me by the attending doctor in the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit as he had used it to pass the Neonatology certification exam. I am so happy he suggested it to me!

I cannot thank you enough for helping me gain my Pediatric Certification

"And a miracle happened, I passed the pediatric boards!"

As a constant procrastinator, I was determined to study for the Pediatric Boards the right way. I bought your entire set of books in February right after I paid for my exam. I dillegently began studying in March and made a strict study schedule. I got through one topic (Respiratory). Then I had some medical complications of my pregnancy and decided to put studying off until the baby was born. She came the end of April with a terrible case of colic lasting through July. One month later my baby got ill and I was unable to devote any more time to studying. I had basically read through the entire main text and done one book of questions and answers. I went to take the exam only because I had paid for it. And a miracle happened, I passed the pediatric boards! All the topics were right from your book. I cannot thank you enough. Your book gave me the info I needed to pass the pediatric boards and gave me countless hours back to be with my baby girl. You guys have the best pediatric board review books

Being successful with the boards can happen even late in the game

"Your Pediatric Board Review Books provides all the tools necessary to pass the boards!"

I’m proof that you CAN start studying Dr. Silverstein's books this late in the game AND pass the boards!!! Just go over your weak areas (based on last years’ test results) and put Dr. Silverstein’s book to use…you’ll be surprised how easy you learn. Then, what I did was review all the subjects I hated, and finally the fun stuff. No matter how you choose to study it, (I received the book just 5 WEEKS before the test AND PASSED!!!!!!) Your Pediatric Board Review Books provides all the tools necessary to pass the boards!

Exactly the questions and answers I was looking for!

"This book was exactly what I was looking for pediatric recertification"

This book was exactly what I was looking for pediatric recertification! After trying multiple books to help guide me through the Pediatric Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process, I decided to try "Surfing Your Way to Pediatric Recertification" because a colleague of mine told me that it contains all of the necessary information while not being boring. As a full time Pediatrician, I didn't have time to deal with a review book that contains generalized information that is not important. I also really liked how the book tries (and is mostly successful) at being humorous and giving ways to remember all these facts. Like I said I don't have much time for memorizing so having easy ways to remember really helps. I also thought the chapter on guiding through the American Board of Pediatrics MOC process was useful because it is pretty complicated.

Must have for board exam prep

"If I were to do anything different it would be to start earlier with your board review books and pediatric questions and answers"

Stu, I passed with flying colors. If I were to do anything different it would be to start earlier with your board review books and pediatric questions and answers. I can’t tell you how many questions on the test were dead ringers for your presentation of the material. More than once every test booklet, I remember thinking: “Thanks Medhumor for the alley oop slam dunk!

Amazingly Useful Pediatric Board Review Books

Your book was fantastic!!! I was set to take the Pediatric Boards last October and had not heard of your book. A resident pointed me to your package deal and I received every one of your Pediatric review books! Not only did Laughing Your Way to Passing the Pediatric Boards contain all the material I need to pass the Pediatric Board Exam, but it also made the material fun (or as fun as it can be!) and easy to remember. The pediatric questions and answers were really easy to navigate because they are broken down by category. The real hidden gem of the package deal was Question and Answers Volume 3: Clinical Vignettes. It gave questions and answers and then broke down the vignette sentence by sentence to show how to arrive at the answers. Would highly recommend these review books!!!

My only regret is that I didn't have it last year

"Just want to congratulate Dr. Silverstein on an excellent review book"

Just want to congratulate Dr. Silverstein on an excellent review book. Just took the Boards last October and know I nailed several questions just for having read the book (three times). My only regret is that I didn't have it last year.

Great book for Family Medicine Boards

"Seriously, this Family Medicine Pediatric Board Review book saved my life!"

Great book for to help prepare for Family Medicine. Seriously, this Family Medicine Pediatric Board Review book saved my life! This is the second copy I am ordering because the first one is all marked up!!! I am using it to help prepare for the American Board of Family Medicine Board Exam. I love how this book gave me useful ways to remember all of this information. But the most important element of this book is its test taking strategies. Every chapter reminds you how to focus on what is important and how to differentiate between what is important and what is put in as a stumbling block. Also, the questions and answers are great!

Hey, this doctor really has his finger on the pulse of the pediatric boards

"I’ve tried several expensive review courses, and have FAILED to Pass the Pediatric Boards"

I’ve tried several expensive review courses, and have FAILED to Pass the Pediatric Boards despite their guarantees (ironically, it seems the more guarantees they give, the worse their course is.) Your book offer came to me from a colleague at a different Pediatric Residency program. The title was interesting enough so I decided that I HAD to take a look at it. It was much less expensive than the thousands of dollars (literally!) that I have already spent on courses AND administrative fees for taking the boards!! At the very least I thought, I would get a laugh from reading it. The book arrived about 40 days before the exam and after reading the first few pages, I realized, “Hey, this doctor really has his finger on the pulse of the pediatric boards."
