Same. Took it Monday and walked out demoralized. Not really sure what I could have done differently either. I even did the Finoff review course.

So there isn't much data out on best study methods for this exam. Personally, I had just studied all the stuff in the AMSSM review book.. which wasn't very useful lol. Nor was my fellowship on preparing me for stuff found on it.

Anecdotally, I felt awful and my result showed. I did end up passing, but it could have easily swung the other way.

I also know of 2 fellows in the same class year (2017), who didn't pass (first fail on a standardized exam for them), which was eye-opening.

What constituted a passing score?

Just Called. ABFM are releasing them to your respective Primary Specialty Boards on Thursday 12/13. Don't know if this means they will be posted Friday or ON Thursday. Hope this helps.

Sorry for the year long delay... I passed and got tied up with work. Board vitals was ok. I think the most helpful resource is going through the old fellows pre-test exams if you can find them, or using the AMSSM review book (all editions). Textbook wise, Netters Sports Medicine seems to be the most useful and digestible source. The ACSM publishes another text but its dense and difficult to read.

I work in a sports fellowship now. I am modeling the curriculum for the didactics off the AMSSM CAQ breakdown. Trying to incorporate the recommended primary articles for each section in conjunction with netters and then pulling out the AMSSM CAQ review questions for our fellow. It seems to be a good way to do it.

There is a push for ultrasound on the CAQ. I am looking at getting our fellow certified for POCUS.

About to take this thing in a couple of weeks. I've taken a few of the CAQ review tests and seem to have scored about the same as you did. I'm also going through a few other resources. Any thought as to how that may correlate with the real thing? I've spoken with plenty of folks who say that the test is not the same as the material, just looking for any insight I can get haha. Feel free to PM me if needed. Thanks!
