TrueLearn General Surgery was a great adjunct to reviewing for the ABSITE. The questions were extremely similar in format to the actual exam questions. I would absolutely use TrueLearn General Surgery again and will be recommending it to the other residents.

I discovered TrueLearn in my last year of residency, and wish it had existed throughout. The content is current, accurate, and reflects the most up-to-date examination format as specified by the American Board of Surgery. The interface resembles the actual examination nearly identically, and the content is amazingly on par with real test questions. At last, a formidable question bank that will soon be established as the gold-standard for the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination.

TrueLearn was an extremely valuable tool that I used yearly to prepare for the ABSITE during my residency. The questions are very similar in structure to the real exam, sometimes almost word for word. The content is spot on, and the question explanations are excellent with sources cited. I was able to achieve an average score of 93rd percentile over my 5 years taking the exam, 2 of the years scoring 98th percentile. A big contributing factor was using TrueLearn as part of my exam prep. I would recommend it to anyone, and I have done so many times. It's by far the best question bank for ABSITE prep that I've come across.
