Once you get about halfway through school here at Cleveland, people start to wonder about the next big step in their educational career. Easy answer, national board exams. After a bit of realization sets in, then comes the anxiety, and then shortly after that comes the panic. And all along the way that dirty word of “boards” stays in the back of your mind…creeping, waiting. So then you start thinking to yourself, “When do I need to start studying?”
You are in luck my friend. You have been studying for boards since the second you stepped foot in the door. Our professors base their curriculum off of board tests and questions. They have a great idea of what you need to know in order to succeed in passing boards. Most of them even mention while giving lecture that “this question will be seen in boards.” Hallelujah!
The board tests you will look forward to taking are Part I, II, III, IV and PT. Not only are you studying for them throughout your educational career, but there’s also more ways to decompress over it. Each round of boards offers an Irene Gold Review. Of course, there’s a little payment that comes with it, but the results are amazing. An unconfirmed percentage of a 97% pass rate has been thrown out there when taking the board reviews ahead of time. That’s good enough for me and I haven’t heard different from anyone else. I will be taking Part I during spring break, and I am up for the challenge. It also helps to know that Cleveland has some of the highest pass ratings for boards in the country.
