Case List Strategy  

Make sure you know ALL the categories on each summary sheet, not simply the ones you have applied. This is especially applicable to the office case list, where you may have strategically dodged those dreadful primary care categories. EVERY SINGLE category is fair game on the test. Our Oral Exam FAQs can spoon feed you questions similar to those most frequently asked in each category.

Did you know that 88% of Americans choose turkey as their choice of entree to eat for Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving Facts
Which President made it a national holiday?  

Early on, Thanksgiving started out as days of prayer among the Pilgrims.  Then in 1621, the fall harvest bounty that the Pilgrims reaped was shared with the Wampanoag Indians. This established the yearly celebration.  In 1863, Sarah Josepha Hale wrote to President Lincoln asking him to recognize Thanksgiving as a US holiday.

SIGN UP FOR THE EXAM NOW or at the latest, for the day after our November review course. The written exam is on the computer.

Do not wait until the day of the exam to discover this.  Go to ahead of time for a tutorial to familiarize yourself with how to take an exam on the computer.
