    Yeah, if you are doing C-MoC you have to pay. That said, they give quite a bit of lee way and don't seem to be hard to work with. I forgot to pay until like February or March last year and nothing happened, they didn't change my certification status and just accepted my payment no questions asked, which I appreciated.

      You're paying for your next board exam in installments, if you add them all up it comes to the thousand bucks or so that the board exam costs. I don't know why they do it that way.

        Collecting interest probably. Good reason to switch to NBPAS

          Yeah, the reasoning was supposedly to lessen the impact of having to shell out about $3k all at once for a computerized exam. I remember people complained that the expense remained the same even though the oral portion of the exam was discontinued, and this was the ABPNs response at the time.

          On a positive note, I am totally cool with the new C-MOC pilot program coming up where you just have to answer a few questions on articles we all read anyway instead of taking yet another multiple guess exam over old information. It seems a lot more useful to keep up on the literature. The last time I took a big exam was nearly 4 years ago and I'm still burned out on exams.
