We already know the pass rate for the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Certification Exam hovers around 85%. This article is going to show two very easy ways to help increase your Pediatric Emergency Medicine Certification Exam score by 10%. If you are not familiar with the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Certification exam, here is a detailed outline of the topics that may appear on your exam. 

While there is no magic pill or wand to significantly increase your exam score, these two techniques are the most useful, easy to implement and only requires a little of your time. This means anyone can take advantage of them. The first tactic is to use a system over a couple of months to identify what you don’t know. Sounds easy, right? The key is to go through a curriculum and identify what you don’t know – not what you are weak at – but what you don’t know. The second strategy is to take advantage of human error. Tests are written by humans, of course, and humans make errors. This article will show you 5 very easy techniques to narrow down an answer choice to either the correct answer or to a 50/50 probability – even without knowing anything about the topic. By combining these two strategies, you’ll be able to increase your Family Medicine certification score by 100 points – which could be the difference between passing or failing. Let’s get started.
