Maximize Your Scoring Potential
At TrueLearn, your final exam outcomes are our absolute passion. Our personalized approach to anesthesiology board preparation hones in on your individual strengths and weaknesses to optimize your performance.
We truly believe that there’s no such thing as a “poor standardized test-taker.” We utilize the “testing effect” strategy for practicing the content you are learning. What better way to practice for your anesthesia boards than to be quizzed periodically and comprehensively with questions like those on the actual exam?
Retaining What You Learned
Actively preparing for your exams doesn’t mean committing facts to memory and then regurgitating the information, but rather truly ‘knowing’ it. A continuous and long-term study approach is the best way to gain and retain knowledge. Studies have shown that retrieval practice (use of practice questions) produces greater gains than traditional studying.
When you begin your study plan, remember the old saying, “slow and steady wins the race.” To retain information more effectively leading up to your exam day, take 30 questions three times a week, while working up to 25-50 questions daily in the days just before your exam.
As you take practice questions, resist the urge to rush through your results. These explanations are essential to learning and will provide insight into why or why not each answer choice was correct, incorrect or insignificant. Having this level of detail will help you make better informed decisions in the future.
The Importance Of Taking Notes
Taking notes on the content you’ve been exposed to is a great way to enhance your study practice. Whether you’re the type that learns by taking notes in the TrueLearn app, or retains best by writing notes by hand, your notes will be a great way to reference items you need to focus on. Revisit your notes throughout your test preparation and in the weeks before the exam to reinforce items you’ve found challenging.
