Announcing the release of the Rosh Review’s ABFM Qbank dedicated to preparing you for the ABFM Modules. The ABFM Certification exam consists of four equal sections of 100 minutes. Each section contains 80 multiple-choice questions. The candidate will choose a content-specific module (we have you covered) at the beginning of the second section of the examination. The first 40 questions of that section will cover the module topic and the following 40 questions will cover the breadth of family medicine. The first, third, and fourth sections of the examination will also cover the entire field of family medicine (this paragraph is modified from the ABFM website).
It’s finally time for your family medicine rotation and you could not be more excited. Although you’re not interested in primary care, you just completed your surgery rotation and are in desperate in need of sleep. A month of outpatient nine to five clinic visits doing well-child visits and reassuring patients that they don’t need antibiotics to treat a viral cold sounds like a piece of cake.
This article is going to show two very easy ways to help increase your ABFM Certification score by 100 points. We already know that pass rates for the ABFM exam hover around 90% for all test-takers. And we know that superior test-taking skills alone are not sufficient to pass the exam. While there is no magic pill or wand to achieve this, 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 ABFM certification score by 100 points – which could be the difference between passing or failing. Let’s get started.
