Hello OptoPrep Friends! It sure has been a busy year here at OptoPrep. As the year comes to a close, we have enjoyed reflecting on the exciting happenings of the year and are inspired while we plan even more new and exciting things for 2018!
As you are likely aware, the NBEO is changing the format of the Part 1 Applied Basic Science (ABS) examination. The final paper-and-pencil (PNP) version will be administered in August 2016, then to be replaced by the computer-based test (CBT) format beginning in March 2017. In addition to transitioning to a computer-based format, there are a few more differences that you should be aware of.
After months of studying and preparing for Part 1 of NBEO can you believe that it is finally over?!
All those long days studying at the library without even showering or putting normal clothes on, all those nights you stayed up well into the morning trying to memorize all of the details of the visual pathway, all of those fast food meals you ate because you didn’t have enough time to cook a real meal, and all those opportunities you missed to hang out with your friends and family because you had a study session have finally come to an end! Now how do you feel? Relieved? Tired? Happy? Nervous?
And what are you now going to do with a little extra free time (until the next set of exams comes around)? We’ve come up with a few ideas to help you celebrate and get your life back on track!
With NBEO Part I fast approaching, we want to ensure that you are completely prepared for what to expect during the ABS (Applied Basic Science) exam so that there aren’t any surprises come testing day!
We want you to know what to expect on NBEO Exam Day!
