Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“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."
Shah M. Nadeem, MD, Gaithersburg, MD

2. Because the physician’s schedule is typically a hectic one, Beat The Boards! is optimized for on-the-go review. Components such as the audio-only lecture option, iOS and Andriod app for mobile review, and offline access capability, and a fully-illustrated board-mapped study guide make Beat The Boards! review easy to incorporate at any point in your daily routine.

Yes, it’s completely real. Rest assured, API has always honored its guarantees and always will. The Triple Trust Guarantee is API’s way of demonstrating that it’s just as invested in your success as you are. After all, if you fail your board exam, API will pay a penalty.
