Customer Reviews

Based on 8 reviews

Terrific Board Review program. Easy to read and recall information because the language is precise and examples are memorable. I used this on my last recertification and sailed through. The training on how approach the learning process is novel and effective. I am excited to use the Print Essentials Study Strong for my upcoming Boards next spring.

Internal Medicine Study Strong Essentials

Leilanie Tuanquin-Gonzalez, MD

I used MedStudy the first time taking the boards right after residency 10 years ago. I passed the boards the first time around so I knew for the recertification I would use MedStudy again and I'm glad I did. The Core books with the literally highlighted high yield topics were perfect. I loved using the Core Scripts Flashcards for quick references and testing. The Q&A premium package to do practice tests was GREAT! I would definitely purchase these materials again in the future.

Anisha Kumar, MD

The books and the questions were incredibly helpful and I recommend them to all. The flashcards were great for review and became fun to make games with.

Daniel Paul, MD

I came reluctantly to the whole experience of studying for the recent Board exams but the style and substance of the MedStudy Board material was very user friendly and I actually began to enjoy the process of studying and doing the mock exams online. It was an icing on the cake to get CME credits for doing what one enjoyed doing. When duty became a delight then life is full and that's exactly what happened in my case - thanks to the great material from MedStudy.

The MedStudy Method

Lock the material you must know into your long-term memory. The MedStudy Method combines the most effective evidence-based learning techniques with the best board-focused material in an easy-to-apply, three-phase approach to study.
