THE 30 DAY ABSITE STUDY SCHEDULE

ABSITE KILLER Q&A and ABSITE REVIEW PRACTICE TEST

ABSITE KILLER Q&A

Examination Content

Since 2006 the ABS has offered the ABSITE as a junior level (PGY-1 and -2) and senior level (PGY-3 to -5) examination. Both the junior- and senior-level versions consist of approximately 225 multiple-choice questions; examinees are given five hours to take the exam. For the junior-level exam, 60% of the examination focuses on basic science, while 40% centers on the management of clinical surgical problems. In the senior-level exam, 20% of the exam focuses on basic science and 80% on clinical management.
