AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS PREP QUESTIONS
Regarding PREP questions, you do not need to be a member of any organization to purchase. The price is cheaper if you are a member of the AAP (American Board of Pediatrics).
- http://www.dermatlas.com/derm/ – Slow to load, but great pix.
- http://www.dermaamin.com/site/ – Good pix. Some descriptions are in another language. Might also be slow to load.
- http://wordsmith.org/anagram/ – GREAT tool for creating mnemonics. Come up with a set of letters which help you remember a particular disease and plug them in here. This will create multiple anagrams from those letters. Pick the one that works best for you.
- http://www.rhymezone.com/r/rhyme.cgi?Word=rash&typeofrhyme=perfect&org1=syl&org2=l&org3=y – If you can start getting a little creative with your memory aids, the pediatrics exam can really be easy. This site allows you to find words that rhyme a word of your choosing. The link should take you to an example for “rash.”
- http://www.onelook.com/?w=c*itis&loc=scworef&scwo=1&sswo=1&ls=a – PHENOMENAL tool for helping you find words that either begin or end with a particular set of letters.
- http://www.textbookofbacteriology.net/index.html – Stuck on a bug? Feel you just “have to know” more information about a particular organism? This site has great information that can really help move past your stumbling blocks. I DO NOT recommend that you spend much time here. The resource is only included for those who need more information once they have gone through all of the PBR resources at least a few times
- http://www.dpd.cdc.gov/dpdx/default.htm – Parasite images for the boards. Not very appetizing, but a great resource.
- http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/ – Fairly helpful common genetic disorders. Easy to understand. Presents a description, inheritance patterns, incidence, etc.
