Providing the highest quality content, BoardVitals does not only provide a question bank; they provide up-to-date explanations from the literature with their answers and detailed rationales as well an assessment of progress broken down by subject areas. With each question, users can see how they compare to their peers and gauge the difficulty of the question by what percentage of peers answered it correctly or chose the same option. The BoardVitals full-length practice exam is a great way to judge overall preparedness and estimate what scoring might be on the real thing.

Full-length practice exams for select question banks are available as an add-on feature to BoardVitals subscriptions. With practice exams, users will experience a full-length test in advance of their boards to ease anxiety prior to test day.
Each practice exam is formatted to mimic the precise exam blueprint and length of the board exam, which allows test takers to become familiar with the layout and tools they will use when they sit for their exam. Practice exam questions are a separate, additional set of questions from the ones within the question bank. Users can also find out their strengths and weaknesses with a personalized score report after the test. In addition, users can even create a custom quiz with the exam interface (on select practice exams) in case they want to get used to the interface outside of the full-length practice exam.
The following specialties have an add-on option to purchase the full-length practice exams:

Most Comprehensive online board review resource for numerous specialties I have seen. Excellent quality and quantity of questions available. Wish I had this sooner.
Board vitals is the ideal complementary review source for any resident seeking to maximize their board exam review. The otolaryngology questions challenge you to apply your knowledge of frequently-tested ENT principles in a variety of fields, ranging from otology and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to pediatric otolaryngoloy and head & neck oncology. Each question is written in a board-style format and each answer offers a detailed review of key concepts. Otolaryngology residents, myself included, have been waiting for this type of review material to be available to us and it's finally here. I highly recommend it!
We incorporated BoardVitals into our dental hygiene program and curriculum to help boost our National Board of Dental Hygiene Exam (NBDHE) outcomes. The platform is easy to access and manipulate for students and faculty and offers an excellent way to review key dental hygiene concepts and practices. Faculty use BoardVitals in the classroom as a quick assessment tool and in the post-clinic debrief session to review and solidify learning. Students can access their BoardVitals accounts at any time to review difficult subject areas and help prepare for the format of the NBDHE questions. Since incorporating BoardVitals into our program and curriculum, our NBDHE pass rates have improved from 85% to 100% for our student graduates. I would recommend BoardVitals to any dental hygiene program looking to improve student learning and licensure exam outcomes.
BoardVitals is a great adjunct to your study materials when preparing for the NBDE II. The questions help to prepare you well for the exam and cover a wide variety of important topics. The ease of completing the practice questions online at your convenience is one of the strengths of the resource. In addition, the detailed answer explanations help to review the important concepts and take away points from the question. I highly recommend it!
This question bank is exactly what I need to prepare to take my pediatric boards. The scope of the material is extremely high yield and really focuses on what I need to know to be most success ful when taking the boards. The answer discussions for each question are well written and are mini-lectures in and unto themselves. I would recommend this question bank to anyone looking to improve their general pediatric knowledge.
Several of our May BSN grads who have passed the NCLEX have stopped in to say hi. Uniformly, they've said how great BoardVitals is!
The BoardVitals neurology question bank questions challenge your clinical knowledge while providing detailed and clear explanations that add to your understanding of the pathophysiology of the neurosciences. This is a great way to beef up your knowledge for the boards and RITE exams!
It's great to have a bank of so many questions, AP and CP, that I can take with me wherever I go- no need to drag around a heavy textbook! BoardVitals makes it easy to make use of even a few minutes of downtime!
I have recommended and will continue to recommend BV to the many people I'm in contact with, both at MGH and elsewhere. As I have now seen the content of the actual board exam, I cannot comment on board content but suffice it to say the results speak. BoardVitals made studying for boards painless and effective.
I absolutely love BoardVitals. It's ideal for board test prep and recommend it for anyone who is preparing for their exams.
I have found BoardVitals to be the single most useful resource in preparing for the Radiology Core exam. In their database, there are over 1000 questions drawn from every section of the Core exam, including Physics, with answers and appropriate references. To-date, it is the most complete and realistic simulation of the Core exam that I've been able to find. I strongly recommend it as an essential exam preparation resource.
Excellent questions with thorough explanations. The question "stems" are longer & more complex than most other board review courses, as are the answer choices. I think that this forces me to be a more focused reader and is a better reflection of the type and length of question that will be on the real exam.
This is the only Cardiology Question Bank that pulls together content from so many sources. It's great to have such an in-depth resource for both the boards and the re-certification exams.
Just so you know, we achieved a 100% pass rate on our national board examination from our last class. This was, largely in part, due to BoardVitals!
