Just like you’ll see on the actual exam. Based on the American Board of Pediatrics format.
No “negatively phrased” questions, no “all of the following except”, no “A and B”…you know what we mean. In order for a test question to be high quality, it must satisfy two basic criteria:
- Must address important content
- Must be well structured
A 3-year-old boy, former 28-week preemie, presents with a large firm non-tender abdominal mass. Findings on physical examination reveal pallor, hemihypertrophy and a protruding tongue. A smooth round abdominal mass approximately 6 cm in diameter is palpated on the right upper quadrant of his abdomen. The remainder of the physical examination findings are normal. Initial laboratory values show a white blood cell count of 10,500 with 10% polymorphonuclear leukocytes, 8% lymphocytes, 4% monocytes, and 1% eosinophils. Hemoglobin is 8, mean corpuscular volume 72 and platelets 600. Aspartate aminotransferase is 140 U/L, alanine aminotransferase is 125 U/L, total bilirubin is 6 mg/dL and alpha-fetoprotein is 150,000 mcg/mL. What is the most likely diagnosis?
Understanding why an answer choice is incorrect is just as important as knowing why it is correct
Synthesized for optimized learning and recall & created with a purpose
Every question contains a detailed explanation for the correct and incorrect answer choices and integrated media for those that learn best by visual stimuli Understanding a topic cannot be learned in isolation. You require context. We take deliberate steps to deliver a comprehensive explanation linking the most important components to master a topic.
Explanations contain integrated audio and visual content to further clarify meaning of the core concept. By representing information using audio cues and spatially with images, you are able to focus on meaning, reorganize and group similar ideas easily and make better use of your audio and visual memory.
Taking Your Learning One Step Further
After each question explanation is a straightforward factoid-based questions with a simple, memorizable answer that serves as reinforcement for the corresponding topic.
