Detailed Study Guide
Outstanding Pass Rate
Laser-Focused Lectures: These Beat The Boards! Child & Adolescent Psychiatry board review courses are comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABPN® Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Certification and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry MOC exams 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.
Child & Adolescent 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: 95% (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 900+ board-style MCQs included with your course. Questions carefully follow the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry board exams content outline, so each question advances your mastery of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the ABPN® Child & Adolescent 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 (MCQs), each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question’s topic.
Optimized for Learning: The Child & Adolescent Psychiatry MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your Child & Adolescent Psychiatry 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 Child & Adolescent Psychiatry prep course features 34.75 hours of laser-focused lectures and a 900+ 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,

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I just wanted to thank you for your excellent Beat The Boards! review course for the child/adolescent psychiatry written board exam. Thanks to your excellent course, I was able to review everything I needed to know and take practice exams from my iPad. Your course greatly decreased my anxiety level and allowed me to pass the exam with relative ease. I have never walked out of a test feeling as confident as I did with this exam. The money for the course was well spent, and worth every penny. Again, thank you so much.”
Scott Bartley, MD, Heath, TX
“Beat the Boards helped me pass both exams with ease; I would not consider taking the boards without Dr. Jack Krasuski’s courses and lectures, which more than prepare for the exam, they help me become a better clinician. I really likes the way the course is played out, with videos, printed material and review questions. It is quite manageable and very well explained and an appropriate level. Thank you so much and keep up the good work!.”
Warren DePonti, DO, Lexington, KY
“This course has been very informative and succinct in providing the necessary information to pass part I of the Child & Adult Psychiatry exam. The faculty has varied experience and were helpful in answering questions.”
Mohammad Jefferany, MD, Caro, MI
“The course focuses on what’s important for the board exams. This is a very good review course and I would recommend it to all my colleagues who want to pass the Child Psychiatry Board.”
Constantine Azarcon, MD, Wilmington, DE
“It was a comprehensive yet concise course tailored to help you pass the CAP Part 1, in a limited period of time.”
Sunil Kettur, MD, Plano, TX
“I just completed the online course for my child and adolescent psychiatry part I exam. It was incredibly convenient to be able to participate in this conference from my home office. Not only was I able to manage my time most efficiently, I did not incur the travel costs of attending the live conference. I actually think it was more helpful than attending live, because I could pause the slides and make flash cards or repeat information that I wanted to hear again. Getting the CME credit was also very helpful and the exam taken at the end to receive credit was simple and a repeat of questions that are presented in the lectures (I was nervous about not passing and not getting credit). Thank you for this course!”
Scally Boeve, MD, HTucson, AZ
Patricia Roy, MD, Skokie, IL
“This is the best course so far. I would say all-time best course. The whole team works hard. It is always enjoyable, from my experience at Part I & II Adult Boards. Courses are always geared to pass exam. “Beat the Boards!” name is justified!”
Jabeen Hayat, MD, Fresno, CA
“I watched most of the videos, review all the question banks twice and read the materials three times. I passed the initial certification test. I did not use anything else to study.”
Elsie Bermudez Pounchard, MD, El Paso, TX
“This is the 2nd course I’ve taken from Dr. Jack and his team. The first one was prep for the General Psychiatry Oral Boards and I breezed through that Exam with flying colors after 3 previous failures. This Child Adolescent Review has been thorough, has a great syllabus, great lecturers and that are friendly! Jack has great colleagues with good characteristics for such a small group. Dr. Jack has a high degree of personal involvement and he also has good humor. Very well-done and worthwhile for 3 days and looking forward even to more resources on the web. Thanks!”
Pamela Hetherington, MD, Branford, CT
“There are no other courses or books to prepare for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry written boards. Dr. Krasuski has hand-picked lecturers which are dynamic and thorough. This is one of the best courses I have taken for any written board preparation. Thank you so much! “

Leah Rosenkrantz, DO, Mount Laurel, NJ

David A. Kaminester, 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.

Diane Sanderson, MD, Williamsville, NY
“The lectures were very helpful. They are in a very user-friendly format. The quizzes were especially helpful in preparing for the board exam.
