And a sub-set of that is testable for the Board exam. The testable material includes time-honored, locked-in-stone, mostly uncontroversial facts that have withstood the test of time.

The answer to your study questions (and reduction of your study time!) can be found inside Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Resource

In today’s fast-paced world it is hard to keep up with the burgeoning IBD literature.

• Carefully vetted board-style vignettes with color images
