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.

I think it’s exceedingly important to learn your personal test-taking style. There isn’t one right way to do this. One person’s methods may not work for you. I think the trick is to be honest with yourself about what works and what doesn’t, to not feel pressured to use a specific method that doesn’t feel comfortable, and to constantly reassess what is working and what isn’t. You can’t be afraid to change directions and consider something different. A major exam is a marathon, not a sprint.

The more you familiarize yourself with the test environment the more natural it will be and the less you will be affected by test day jitters. No matter who you are. These are things anybody can do.”
