What Is BoardVitals?

BoardVitals is an exam preparation database that provides review questions for the USMLE, COMLEX and NBME subject exams.   BoardVitals consists of question banks, plus up-to-date explanations with the answers and detailed feedback.  It is possible to create customized practice tests, view statistics, and get suggested questions based on your performance.
