Test Taking Technique
ABOG and AOBOG Written Candidates

You pretty much have to know everything about OB/GYN. However, for you “lists folk,” both of the boards give a breakdown of the categories.
You ABOG folk go to the 2017 Bulletin via abog.org for a list of topics covered on the exam. They break it down by OB, GYN, Office Practice/Preventative/Primary Care, and Cross Content areas. Although the examples in parentheses are not meant to be all-inclusive, you would be a fool to not know them.      
You AOBOG folk go to aobog.org and click on “For a list of study topics”.  Yours are broken down into GYN, GYN ONC, REI, OB, MFM. Notice you don’t have Cross Content topics.

True Facts from WEAU News

  • Women purchase the majority of gifts - 85%
  • 73% of flower sales are sold to men
  • The saying "to wear your heart on your sleeves" came from young men and women when they drew names from a bowl to find out who their Valentine might be. That name would be worn on their sleeve for one week so people would know how they feel.
