Detailed Study Guide
Outstanding Pass Rate
Laser-Focused Lectures: These Beat The Boards Addiction Psychiatry board review courses are comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABPN® Addiction Psychiatry Certification and Addiction Psychiatry MOC exam blueprints. The modules are organized into lectures covering all related exam “keywords.” Thus, you effectively review every required exam topic and nothing else, acquiring increased mastery of the material in less time.
Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board exam preparation. The two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant. The certification and MOC courses share the same tried and true faculty.
Addiction Psychiatry Study Guide: This course companion makes it easy to follow along with lectures, take notes, and study offline. The PDF includes the complete course syllabus, with all referenced slides, photos, illustrations, and infographics. (Printed version also available at checkout.)
Outstanding Pass Rate: Beat the Boards! Participant Pass Rate: 100%; Overall ABPN® Pass Rate: 85% (MOC Exam).
BOARD-STYLE PRACTICE QUESTIONS
Comprehensive Q Bank
Realistic Test Environment
The “QBL” Method
Optimized for Learning
Comprehensive Question Bank: Test your exam preparedness by answering 1300+ board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQ) included with your course. Questions carefully follow the Addiction Psychiatry Certification and Addiction Psychiatry Recertification board exams content outline, so each question advances your mastery of ABPN® exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the ABPN® Addiction Psychiatry boards test you. You learn taking practice tests in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, lectures use a method called “Question-Based Learning.” Lectures are constructed from a series of board-style multiple choice questions, each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question’s topic.
Optimized for Learning: The Addiction Psychiatry MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your addiction psych knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.

“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Beat The Boards! course. This Addiction Psychiatry prep course features 36.5 hours of laser-focused lectures and a 1300+ question Q Bank. But here’s the rub – all that great content will do you no good if you don’t get through it in time for the exam. Here are a few examples of the ease of preparing with Beat The Boards!: 1) listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work, 2) answer a few MCQs on your lunch break, 3) watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike, and 4) when you know you’ll be on call without Wi-Fi or cellular signal, download lectures to your phone ahead of time. Works great on flights as well!
Here at American Physician Institute we’re dedicated to your board success. That’s why we offer you a better-than-money-back pass guarantee. We don’t succeed unless you succeed.”
Yours in board exam success,
Jack Krasuski, MD, Executive Director

“I passed the examination. I would not have done it without your course.”
Umnmaheswara Kalapatapu, MD, Logansport, IN
“I failed the boards my first time around studying on my own. The API online course guided me to focus on the material that I needed to know for the test. The online lectures with the lecture outline binder were a high-yield and very efficient way to study. Many questions on the test reflected material taught in the course that I would not have thought would be important for the test. I did very well on the exam after using the API materials to study.”
Melissa Motta, MD, Baltimore, MD
“I just found out that I passed my boards yesterday. Dr. Krasuski’s course was pivotal to my success. I watched each webinar at least twice, and used the slides as a study guide. The test questions were also a great practice tool. I would recommend this to anyone who is preparing for recertification. Great course!”
Diane Sanderson, MD, Williamsville, NY
“Thank you for the passionate effort for the course. Course is excellent, very helpful. Useful not only for Board Preparation but in daily clinical practice for patient care and prescribing. The course has been very stimulating to me for passing my boards.”
Mahmooda, MD, Hafiz, MD
“One of the best courses in the country. Key to success.”
