Summary

The world of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) knowledge is vast. Within that world is a sub-set of knowledge that is especially important for everyday clinical care. 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

Until now, there has been no single, slim, but high-yield volume that summarizes the IBD you really need to know for the board exams, preparing for rounds, or just plain read. The authors have collected every pearl of wisdom, high-yield factlet, IBD "Board buzzword," micrograph, and classic imaging study they could muster, all while keeping Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Resource a manageable size.

In today’s fast-paced world it is hard to keep up with the burgeoning IBD literature. Traditional textbooks usually feature long and detailed discussions that don’t directly address board and recertification exams. On the flip side, many board review manuals provide lists and bullet points lacking sufficient background and context.

Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam by Drs. Brennan Spiegel and Hetal Karsan, fills the unmet need in board review by presenting time-tested and high-yield information in a rational, useful, and contextually appropriate format.

Why you need Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam:
• Focuses exclusively on inflammatory bowel disease review
• Carefully vetted board-style vignettes with color images
• Comprehensive yet succinct answers using a high-yield format
• Emphasis on key clinical pearls and “Board Buzzwords”
• Rapid-fire crunch time exam with 140 classic one-liners such as:
Diarrhea + mucus-filled cysts throughout colon = ?

The vastly evolving world of IBD includes genetic breakthroughs and new medications with different risks and benefits. Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam has it all in one resource that includes endoscopic, histologic, radiologic and dermatologic manifestations, as well as with great images and tables to help guide the reader.

Chapters include:
• A compilation of general lessons learned from past test takers
• “Tough Stuff” board review vignettes
• “Crunch-Time” Self-Test—Time to get Your Game On!

With its focus on pearl after pearl, emphasis on images, and attention to high-yield “tough stuff” vignettes you don’t know the answers to (yet), Acing the IBD Questions on the GI Board Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Resource will help you ace the GI and recertifying examinations, look good on clerkship rounds, simply challenge you with interesting and entertaining vignettes, and take optimal care of your IBD patients in clinical practice.
