The InsideTheBoards podcast is dedicated to helping you learn to think like a question writer so you can study smarter, not harder. Our goal is to take you "Inside" the boards. With our special series like the Step 1 Study Smarter Series, we aim to dedicate a "season" toward helping you study based on the rhythm of medical education. Throughout the year, look for special "Study Smarter" series. In the Spring it's USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1. Early Summer it's Step 2. In the late fall, we'll help you Match Smarter in your chosen specialty. But we also will pepper in shows dedicated to particular shelf exams, Step 3, and other topics relevant to those involved in medical education.

Great insight

Love thinking about studying for tests from this perspective. Once you learn the test material you need to know how to figure out what the test is asking you.

great new podcast

I recently checked out the ITB podcast and wish I'd had a resource like this in medical school. I have always been a good, but not great, standardized test taker and while I did well in medical school, I was vastly outperformed by some students on shelf and step exams without really understanding why, since I always felt like I had a good grasp on the content. I think that an approach like what ITB teaches would have made all the difference.

This podcast gets the learner into the frame of mind of the test question writer, focusing on practical test-taking strategy rather than emphasizing the memorization of endless content devoid of proper context (what I mostly did as a student). In the years I've spent in medical school and then preparing for residency inservice exams and ultimately the pediatric board exam, I have stumbled by trial and error on a few of the strategies Dr. Beeman teaches. A resource like this encapsulates this trial and error experience and puts it in a nice, accessible format from the get-go. Even though my student days are long behind me, I think that the concepts that ITB relates here will prove very useful in preparing for my pediatrics board recertification exam.

I think I'm in love

So I was going to give this 4 stars but it took me less than a week to catch up on it, had a song by AVA, and a talk with a Plastic Surgeon that had me grinning from ear to ear the entire time. 5 star content. Love the questions, feel free to press more step 1 stuff. I've wanted a podcast like this for a while now. So glad it came while I'm still in medical school.
