Welcome to SAS Board Review

Enhancing the Scientific American Surgery mission to educate, the SAS Board Review SABRe Surgery has arrived! SABRe Surgery is the perfect means of measuring and sharpening surgical knowledge for the long suffering resident to nail the written Boards, and for the busy practitioner to breeze through the recertification exam.

Part 1: ABSITE Review Exercises

ABSITE Review aligns with the ABSITE Content Outline topics. Exercises include core principles and advanced practice questions that you expect to see on the written exam. Use these exercises for practice and to test your knowledge before taking any exam.

Part 2: Mock Exam and Qualifying Exam Prep (QEP)

A 250 question Board mock-exam, weighted according to the ABSITE outline. Account settings allow programs and individuals to answer questions in 'practice mode' or 'exam mode' mimicking the exam experience.

Why consider SABRe Surgery?

Every surgeon is unique and learns differently. SABRe Surgery has custom settings for individuals and programs to train and prepare as they wish. In practice mode, exercises reveal correct and incorrect answers plus track scores and progress in your personal logbook. For the Qualifying Exam Prep, you can activate ‘Exam Mode’ and turn off answers and scores to emulate the actual written Board exam and experience!
