“Dear Dr. Jack, While you don’t know me, I feel like I know you well because you (and your colleagues) were my constant companions as I commuted from home to work this summer and fall as I prepared for my Psychiatry Board Exam. While I graduated from a very good combined psychiatry and family medicine residency program in June, I relied solely on your Beat the Boards course to prepare for the test. Today I learned that I passed the exam and am very grateful to you for such a well-developed and well-taught course. Thank you very much for a quality learning experience. I would not have passed without your help.”
Kevin Brazill, DO, Cincinnati, OH
“I enjoyed using Beat the Boards! more than any other study source. I felt overly prepared and confident. I passed the ABPN Psychiatry Boards with ease, and it is primarily due to the fact that I wasn’t in the least bit nervous after reviewing Beat the Boards! I especially enjoyed the fact that I could stream the reviews via my web browser into my wireless headphones at home. Thus, I was able to study while multi-tasking around the house. This made my study experience much more enjoyable. I would recommend American Physician Institute’s review materials to anyone.”
Shannon Hansen, MD, Columbia, SC
“I began my preparation rather late, having had to deal with changing jobs, moving home and relocating to a new state all within 2-3 weeks of the exam. In the middle of my hectic schedule, what I found most useful was the course videos that I downloaded on my Android phone and could listen to in my car as I drove to work each morning. In the end, I did manage to find the time to read the course work and practice the questions, and am I glad I did- Beat the Boards! was succinct, precise and excellent prep work for the final day of the exam. I aced my Neurology portion (the part I most dreaded) and sailed through the Psych too. So all I want to say is -Thank you Beat the Boards!”
Arun Haridas, MD, Philadelphia, PA
“I was so pleased with my course. I did the full online course of the Psychiatric Initial Examination, the first year to have the clinical component built in. I know for a fact this course put me over the edge. I was averaging Printe scores of around 45%. After 1 month with the program, I got 80% on both Neurology and Psychiatry from the board scores. I was so overjoyed. The online videos were top-rate, the online question banks were very appropriate, and the feedback helped to sharpen my skills. I ditched the Kaufman’s book and any other study guides I had accumulated and concentrated just on the home study material. I’ve already recommended this course to others. Best decision I ever made. The guarantee that was offered cinched the deal for me. Very impressed!”
Matthew Aaron Sachs, MD, Virginia Beach, VA
“I worked 7 days a week and didn’t have the time to go through text books and other study material. I heard about Dr. Krasuski’s board review program from a colleague who was taking the exam the same year as I and I decided to use something that had a good reputation both online and from peers. I was surprised by the depth of information that was provided and the level of difficulty/complexity of the online test questions. It far succeeded what I need to pass the boards with minimal personal effort. If you follow Dr Krasuski’s lectures and complete all of the questions online, there is almost a 100% chance of passing. I passed the boards after studying for less than 1 month with no other material other than what was provided to me by Dr. Krasuski. I continued working 7 days a week while studying and still passed with flying colors. I haven’t heard of anyone in my group of cohorts who used Dr. Krasuski’s prep material and did not pass the exam on their first try. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants a high-yield method to review for 4 years of Residency in less than 1 month.”
