Exam Success Requires Study. Isolation is Not Required.
A Study Community Welcomes You
Almost all board preparation now occurs online. With that convenience, though, comes less interaction with faculty and fellow Neurology Certification exam-takers.
When you register with Beat The Boards!, you join a community of colleagues preparing for the same exam. On the community forum, you can ask questions, give advice, and offer to start or join a study group.
There is strength in numbers – help and be helped, stay motivated, and get connected. All with Beat The Boards! Get started today.
The “QBL” Method
Laser-Focused Lectures: The Beat The Boards! Neurology Certification board review course is comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABPN® Neurology Certification Exam blueprint. Thus, you review every required exam topic and nothing else, allowing you to learn more in less time.
The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, the 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.
Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board preparation. Two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant.
Neurology Certification 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.)
BOARD-STYLE PRACTICE QUESTIONS
Comprehensive Q Bank
Realistic Test Environment
Optimized for Learning
Comprehensive Q Bank: You can test your exam preparedness by answering 1600+ board-style MCQs included with your course. Questions carefully follow the board content outline, so each one advances your mastery of exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the boards test you. You learn how to answer questions in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
Optimized for Learning: The MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.
ANYTIME, ANYWHERE ACCESS
Unlimited Repeat Viewing
Lecture Viewing Options
Plus, CME Accreditation
Always-on Convenience: The Beat The Boards! course is available 24/7 online from any computer, smart phone, or tablet device for easy accessibility throughout a doctor’s busy lifestyle.

“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Beat The Boards! course. This Neurology Certification prep course features 58.5 hours of laser-focused lectures and a 1600+ 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

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“Beat The Boards! is a ‘must-have’ to prepare for the Adult Neurology Boards. It is not only thorough, but it also clues you in regarding what to focus on. By reviewing the material over and over again, I walked into the boards with complete confidence. I walked out feeling as if I did the very best I could to prepare. My passing grade was confirmation that the course did, indeed, work. If I had to do it all over again, I would prepare with Dr. Krasuski and friends in a heartbeat! You can trust these guys- I did and it paid off.”
Michelle Boudreau, DO, Vemon, CT
“I have successfully passed the Neurology Boards, scoring in the 80s on 2.5 out of the 3 total sections. I can not tell you how your course was a tremendous help in my preparation and a big part of my passing success. The lectures were great. The lecturers themselves were of the highest quality in their fields, and the course was well organized. I consider this trifecta a recipe for success. I strongly encourage everybody to attend your course.”
Nadir Osman, MD, Boca Raton, FL
“I want to say that the biggest drawback of other neurology courses is that there is no stress on psychiatry, though there is quite a bit of psych seen on the exam. Your course offers everything we need to know, not just neurology but also psychiatry. Not only did I pass with an excellent score, I in fact got 100% in psychiatry. All I did to prepare for the exam was Beat the Boards! I was short on time and had no time to even dig through anything else but your course. In fact, one does not need anything else but your course. Thank you so much for putting together such a great course.”
Dilpreet Kaur, MD, Elk Grove, CA
“I took my neurology boards after taking Beat the Boards! and passed with flying colors on the first try. I was worried because I had been working full time and family life is also busy so I didn’t have as much dedicated time to study as I would have liked. However, the week long course helped to focus my studying and help me key in on the board-worthy facts and concepts, particularly in my areas of weakness. I highly recommend Beat the Boards! as a quality board review course.”
Dalila Lewis, MD, FAAP, Suffolk, VA
“I easily passed my boards after taking the Beat The Boards! course. I found the course not only extremely thorough, but also an enjoyable way to review for the boards. Simply put, I found that it really structured my studying in a way I might not have been able to on my own. I am already recommending it to colleagues with upcoming boards next year.”
Matt Brock, MD, Brookline, MA
“Thank you for guiding our group to success. I am in the academic field and I definitely will personally encourage other Neurologists to attend the course, live or online, before sitting for the Boards. The course is concise and precise, and it is by far superior to any other course we were able to review. Beat the Boards! really guarantees passing with excellent grades. I thank you so much for your help.”
Bordes Laurent, MD, Brooklyn, NY
Melissa Motta, MD, Baltimore, MD
“Thank you very much for organizing such a well-designed crash course for Neurology board preparation. For an extremely busy physician like me it was really useful. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to pass the board in first chance without any risk.”
Hariprasad Kunhiveedu, MD, Shaker Heights, OH
“I passed my boards with flying colors. Your course was to the point, focused with clear slides. I did not have to run through the review course books. I did not waste my time figuring out what was important because your course included it all. I was very satisfied and would recommend this to future test takers.”
Priyanka Chaudhry, MD, Irving, TX
“I had to wait to see if I passed – which I did. Overall, I think it’s an excellent course focused and pertinent for the exam. I am a Child Neurologist and so I was particularly worried about the Adult portion but the course prepared me well – even with my busy schedule (two physician parents with three kids under five)!”
Ari Zeldin, MD, Encinitas, CA
“I took the course right after residency, and found it to be superb! The lectures were efficient, filled with HIGH-YIELD material. The test questions were very similar to the actual exam. This course was a lifesaver for me, especially since I am not the greatest test-taker. Taking this course allowed me to pass!”
Robert Fishman, MD, Aliquippa, PA
“I passed my written board, and I felt this course for sure is helpful.”
Xiaohong Sl, MD, Madison, MS
“This board review course was a comprehensive, high-yield neurology review. It’s just what I needed to focus my preparations 1 month before my exam. Now I have more than enough study material and many practice exams to help me solidify my preparation. Attending the live course helped me focus, and having video access to review is really helpful.”
Ellen Haddad, MS, Summit, MS
“This review was the best thing I did to prepare for my neurology board. It saved time during my hectic schedule. The material is very focused and provides a complete review for the exam. What I loved most about this program is the ability to use the videos from my mobile device, giving me the chance to study while exercising after a long day at work. Great product, I already recommended it to my colleagues finishing their residency.”
Sami Op, MS, West Hartford, CT
“Any resident, fellow, or practitioner who’s overwhelmed with studying all the possible topics in Neurology for the boards would do well to attend this course. It’s a focused yet still comprehensive review that highlights tested topics. I’m much more confident about taking the boards after having attended.”
Shannon Stewart, MD, Augusta, GA
“Very comprehensive review – while geared towards board takers it is also a very good way of getting updated and CME credits. I think it is a much better review than Osler. The lecturers were all very knowledgeable and aside from giving board-taking tips, also gave updates or ongoing research on topics they lectured in. I definitely recommend this course – even for child neurologists.”
Melinie Alarcio, MD, Mesa, AZ
“Beat The Boards! Neurology Certification course is a must for anyone preparing for neurology certification. The lectures and the high-yield information are invaluable. Outstanding lecturers who clear up difficult concepts in a very easy and lucid manner. Highly recommended.”
Tariq Alam, MD, St. Louis, MO
“It helps in providing confidence, giving support and impetus for preparing for the boards. It is great to meet colleagues from all over the country and at various stages of their careers. Finally, the lecturers in the course are skilled communicators in their fields, making the information stick. Thank you for organizing this awesome course!”
Soma Sengupta, MD, Brookline, MA
“I am sure it will help me for the test and in practicing neurology. The main reason most of us attend the course is we don’t have much time for preparing and reviewing all materials covered in years of neuro training. It was an intense 5-day course.”
Rajeeta Mani, MD, Detroit, MI
“This course was comprehensive, efficient review of topics covered in the exam. There was a great balance of lectures and I feel much more confident going into my board exam armed with this information. Thank you!”
Glynnis Zieman, MD, Phoenix, AZ
“Colored Pathology slides are extremely helpful. Please include pediatric neurology in the live course as it is a high yield topic and is difficult for adult Neurologists.”
Yaman Z. Eksioglu, Dallas, TX
“I was very satisfied with this course. It is really a very helpful motivation in studying and understanding a lot of vague principles in neurology, which you can’t find in any books but only will find them as hints from the lecturer, which also helps in understanding the whole subject.”
Mohammed Homsi, MD, Bolingbrook, IL
“This is the most comprehensive review program I’ve attended. Not only do you have live lectures, online lectures and syllabus were very helpful for review. A highly recommended program. CME is an added bonus.”
Simon Han, MD, Dallas, TX
“Overall, the review course was very well-organized. The speakers were very eloquent and knowledgeable in their fields. The courses were concise, yet very complete. I would recommend this course to all future neurologists taking the boards.”
Ovictur Lee R. Tesoro, MD, Pittsburgh, PA
“I had a wonderful five days in Chicago. The neurology boards prep course was well-organized and the faculty was very dedicated. I would introduce the course to other neurologists or psychiatrists.”

Jill Trumble, MD, Augusta, GA
“Up-to-date, concise yet comprehensive board-focused course. I tried several board review materials. Beat The Boards! is by far the best.”
Satsuki Matsumoto, MD, Iowa City, IA
“Since people are in residency, fellowships, private practices – you don’t have much time to read. This is short, detailed, and point-specific for the exams.”
Baku Patel, MD, West Bloomingfield, MI
“Excellent review with lots of questions. Speakers are thorough and try to give examples of high-yield topics that will be likely tested on the boards.”
