  1. Buy and Keep

    I agree. A CD-ROM [buy and keep] platform is the safest, most secure and stable way to go. Per unit – it is the most cost-efficient, as well.

    Dr. Jay

  2. Hi Doctor Marcinko

    Thank you so much for your telephone call and help.

    As I mentioned, we would like to order a copy of the Podiatric Surgery (Q&A) CD-ROM and set your company up as a vendor. I am attaching a W-9 and all the necessary paperwork for same.

    Ruth Schweitzer
    Director – Graduate Medical Education

  3. Dr. Marcinko

    I purchased the PodiatryPrep study guide for the oral boards in surgery, and passed!

    Thank you FARC, Inc.

  4. Why not Free PodiatryPrep Products?

    Q: Why don’t you give away your products for FREE, and charge advertisers on your web site and blog?

    A: Our main goal is to help doctors pass any podiatry board on the first attempt. We often tell clients that we aim to help them thru their entire practice life cycle, and to sell them CDs only as necessary; not after test failures and re-takes. You purchase our CDs; you do not lease them using some cheesy subscription-based model, with time bomb! You keep them forever.

    But, we are not a CD vending machine for those who do not wish to study conscientiously for the boards. This is not a cheating scam or diploma mill, and we can’t give away products for free. However, we do offer discounts for product suites and reductions for medical students, residents, fellows and bulk orders.

    Our continually updated and customizable intellectual property has high utility and extreme value. We must pay steep licensing fees to third parties to write code on their proprietary operating systems, platforms, etc. This is why we have no MAC products from Apple, Inc. Their OS-X Leopard license is just too expensive for a small market opportunity like podiatry.

    Thus, we can’t take financial risk without expecting reimbursement; just as you expect payment from your patients. And, we hope you realize the value and extreme worth of our independent, unbiased and un-bought business model.

    As a philospher once said: “When something is free – that’s what it’s worth!”

    Today, in the era of healthcare reform, and electronic connectivity, the “advertiser-driven” business model is last-generation and suspect. Unfortunately subtle advertising bias is everywhere and may increasingly be subject to ethical and legal challenges.

    So, please beware the posers and imitators.

  6. Why PodiatryPrep?

    Good question:

    1. Save money on travel.

    Our CDs or SAAS programs are available from the comfort and convenience of your own home, office or meeting room with PC. Meet your specific test prep needs via customization.

    Whether you purchase a Comprehensive Library Study Guide using PDF files and transcript — or Interactive QA Programs under MSFT-WINDOWS XP, you’ll get the information you need on your schedule.

    2. Keep learning after the exam.

    Every program purchase includes additional study materials so you can keep learning long after your board exam test is over.

    3. Use for Continuing Education.

    Save time studying for state or national CEU credits. Gather around a computer and enlighten your entire team for one low price.

    4. Bulk Order Discounts.

    Do you work with a virtual team or multiple locations? Ask our customer specialists about discounts for your entire podiatric medical or surgical team, school, clerkship, internship, residency or fellowship training program.

  7. Doctors,

    You asked? How we are different?

    1. A totally unique study guide and library product – psychometrically driven and updated.
    2. Buy and keep user model – not a 12 month time bomb subscription service.
    3. Use anytime – anywhere on your own PC. Remote servers are never down.
    4. More secure and safe.
    5. Make your own folders and rename or refile as you wish [easy-moderate-difficult concepts, etc].
    6. Customized to you with small surcharge. Not an off-the-shelf product.
    7. Product backed “Guaranteed to Pass”. Data mined algorithyms.
    8. We started the industry; imitators are a decade behind.

    Now, using any or all of our products, along with any others, might be a good strategy. One can never study too much.

    And, using other texts, books, guides, journals, seminars, etc … can’t hurt, either. These tests are TOUGH.

    NOT responsible for other “faux” seminars or “poseur” products.

  12. Get ready to pass the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle (RRA) Surgery exam.

    Receive questions developed and reviewed by ABFAS certified Podiatrists in RRA Surgery. The ABFAS Rearfoot and Ankle Study Guide follows the exam content outline for the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) RRA Surgery Part 1 and Part 2 Certification Exams.

  13. Tips for the ABFAS Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Exams

    We suggest using and studying all our content files as a resource for the exam you are taking FIRST; and then follow with the questions. This is especially true for the ABFAS Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Exams

    Note that being Board Certified in Foot Surgery is a prerequisite to taking the reconstructive rearfoot/ankle surgery.

    The ABFAS RRA exams are getting very difficult and cover very specific topics given the limited scope of the exam. While Part 1 of the exam covers diagnostics and operative care, Part 2 is focused strictly on interpreting clinical information, making diagnostics and planning treatments.

    Many of the concepts on the exam are topics that you have encountered in your practice [CBT – CPC – Cognitive styles Qs], so be prepared for these more esoteric cases. The questions are case-structured and very comprehensive [ie., difficult].


  14. CPR Review/Cheat Sheet

    Do you know the rate or depth of compression for an infant?

    Use our quick review/cheat sheet to make sure that you don’t forget critical CPR information that you might need to know sooner than you think. Every podiatrist needs to know CPR.

    Reduce study time by using our CPR Review sheet and increase your level of preparation for medical emergencies.

  18. A Word on Cognitive Test Questions
    [AKA: CBT, CPC, Cognitive Questions, Case Models, AI, Clinical Questions, etc]

    Think you’re ready for the Board exams?

    Test yourself using our practice test questions. Find out if you’re prepared or if you need to head back to the included content files for another review. Use our practice test questions to make sure that you’re not caught off guard on test day!

    Our practice test questions give you the opportunity to test your knowledge on a set of questions. You can know everything that is going to be covered on the test and it will not do you any good on test day if you have not had a chance to practice.

    Repetition is a key to success and using practice test questions allows you to reinforce your strengths and improve your weaknesses.

    Detailed Cognitive Questions with Detailed answers and explanations are included for each question. It may sound obvious, but you have to know which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed them) to be able to avoid making the same mistakes again when you take the real exam/test.

    That’s why our cognitive practice test questions include detailed answer explanations. These in-depth answer explanations will allow you to better understand any questions that were difficult for you or that you needed more help to understand.



    1. Memorization and QAs will only get you so far.

    Today, modern question writers are specifically instructed to avoid testing easily-memorized facts. The exam’s goal is to test understanding of podiatric, orthopedic and medical science; not recall. Few questions will ask you to simply name a disease, procedure, pathogen, or enzyme from memory. It’s more likely you will be asked to apply a concept to an unfamiliar scenario, something that’s very difficult to do purely from recall. While memorized facts may help to some degree, you will do much better if you to understand WHY a memorized fact is important rather than just the fact itself.

    2. There are lots of experimental questions that don’t count toward your score.

    The boards need questions that “discriminate” among strong and weak test takers. The best questions are answered correctly by students who score highly on the test overall, and answered incorrectly by students who perform poorly. These allow the boards to separate students into groups that can be assigned a score.

    To find good questions, many experimental questions are placed throughout your test to collect data. Lots of these are later thrown out because of poor performance.

    For example, we once saw a question that less than five percent of test takers answered correctly. It was ultimately thrown out, but only after a few hundred students answered it for data collection purposes. Many of those students probably left their exam ruminating over this question. Experimental questions like these can account for as many as 20 percent of your exam, and they don’t count toward your score.

    Don’t panic during the test if you see a bizarre question. And don’t base your study plan around comments from other students like, “I had a crazy question on my exam about …”

    3. About half of the questions on boards are relatively easy.

    The boards need a range of question difficulty to spread students out in terms of scores. All questions cannot be brain twisters. Even though super-difficult questions are much discussed among test-takers, not every question is like this. About half the questions on all board exams are straightforward. If you put in solid work to prepare, you will get these questions right.

    4. More than 90 percent of what you study will not appear on your exam.

    You can pound podiatric facts, figures, formulae and biologic-adjuvants into your brain only to see no questions about them on your test. With only a few hundred questions, the boards cannot even come close to covering every potential topic. When you begin to study, do your best to understand everything. But as the test gets near; don’t worry if one particular topic is giving you trouble. It likely won’t appear on your exam.

    5. Reading comprehension and vocabulary skills are important.

    Once a student told us she believed he had found a practice question with two right answers. She thought the word attenuate meant the same thing as accentuate when in fact these words are opposites. And, of course, one of the incorrect answer choices fit perfectly if you made this reading mistake. It’s very easy to choose incorrect answers due to misreading of questions and/opr answer choices. The boards often use tricky language to make the exam more difficult. Many students focus on high yield facts and under appreciate language skills

    One way to avoid language errors is to read questions carefully. So, develop solid reading and vocabulary skills. These are skills you can’t obtain by drilling flash cards, reading a computer screen or watching videos. Some students neglect our printed content files now that video and online cloud based subscription on-line learning services are available. This is a huge mistake.

    Test makers employ authentic experts that use scientific words and sophisticated vocabulary just like in the exams. The best students over the years have been avid readers of textbooks, journals and our voluminous copy-righted study content files; in addition to QAs ……. Do not neglect our content study files.



    Test makers employ authentic experts that use scientific words and sophisticated vocabulary just like in the exams. The best students over the years have been avid readers of textbooks, journals and our voluminous copy-righted study guide content files; in addition to mere QAs …….
