How to Study for Standardized Examinations is a great tool for healthcare students preparing to take their national boards. It may also be useful to a practitioner studying for a recertification exam if they need a refresher on test-taking strategies.This review guide combines a content-based (facts) approach used by many board-review textbooks with a context-based (application) approach to studying, learning and performing on national board examinations. Readers will develop and/or expand their self-efficacy (an evidence-based and widely reported skill required to excel academically) and improve efficiency as they position themselves to obtain maximal scores on their national boards. This text should be read before studying, especially for those students who have trouble with test-taking and need additional strategic support. How to Study for Standardized Examinations expands upon the test-taking strategies that are needed to really excel on exams and includes two multiple-choice practice exams with feedback. The exams are general basic science and medicine questions applicable to all health care students. This text is a valuable study resource for students and practitioners who have a difficult time taking tests.
