Examination Review Guides

Last Update: April 1, 2004.

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

This category includes publications that assist students preparing for entrance, board certification, recertification, or licensing examinations.

Examination review guides provide information concerning generally recognized standards, requirements and prerequisites for formal education and licensure in the health professions, and hence may be valuable for historical research as well as current use. However, since this category is characterized by a high volume of publishing and many competing, redundant titles, the Library does not intend to maintain a comprehensive collection. NLM selectively collects examples of guides to U.S. examinations, with emphasis on widely disseminated titles that have substantive content and that are produced by major U.S. medical publishers or recognized professional organizations. The Library also collects guides for disciplines for which the majority of publishing is in this format (e.g., allied health professions). NLM generally does not collect foreign examination review guides or guides that assist students to prepare for examinations based upon specific textbooks.
