BOOK REVIEWS: A NECESSITY IN A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET

 

  BOOK REVIEWS: A NECESSITY IN A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET                

 

 

 

Books and reviews are inseparable. Reviews are fingerprints of the authored work they intend to display. A proper critique demands an appropriate analysis to draw out the best in a book. Many books languish, forgotten relics of hard work and vision. My job as a book reviewer is to flesh out important aspects of a publication so potential readers will be drawn into the substance of the work. There are very few bad books. Yet there are many poorly conceived reviews. A reviewer’s challenge is give his or her reader a flavor of the book being considered. With the latter in mind a book review should be authentic, unique and well written.

 

Best Book Reviews came into existence because its owner, Mark Davis MD, was not able to obtain appropriate review services when needed for his works. The few reviewers available requested outrageous prices to perform the work. Dr. Davis has a wide experience reviewing, proofing and copy editing books and journal articles. He reviews nonfiction books of most genres and science fiction. Whether it is a hard back, paper format, E book or other digital representation the review is always thorough, timely and worth the limited expense. Dr. Davis’ rates for review are extremely competitive. Do not let your book languish. A good review highlights booth the author and his work.

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD FAIL WITHOUT GUIDANCE

 

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD FAIL WITHOUT GUIDANCE

 

     As many physicians have discovered the Special Examination (SPEX) test was designed to fail. This exam’s broad contents, extensive set of questions and limited time to complete have caused an extremely high failure rate. Literature by the Federation of State Medical Boards, concerning this exam, is vague and misdirects applicants on what material to study.

 

     SPEX test consists of 336 questions broken down into 7 sections. Each segment contains 48 questions that must be finished in 64 minutes. This requires that examinees finish each question in 1.3 minutes. Many questions are 10 or more sentences in length with attached graphs, diagrams and or x-rays. Examinees are provided insufficient time to evaluate the circumstance of each question therefore choosing the correct answer becomes extremely difficult. This test is not a fair representation of a physician’s knowledge or abilities. Yet state boards require this unfair test under a number of circumstances. Usually a physician who has been away from practice for a prescribed period of time is a candidate. Unfortunately most medical boards provide no help in directing the physician where to emphasize his or her time. For the aforementioned reasons SPEX TUTORIAL SERVICES came into being.

 

     One on one tutoring helps candidates for the SPEX exam focus on the proper course of study. Your tutor, Mark Davis MD, has accumulated a vast experience with this exam. His knowledge ranges from specific question content to the flow of subject matter on recent exams. Dr. Davis will discuss which books and videos will give you the most return for time spent. With a physician’s limited time learning the most important aspects of the SPEX test will give the examinee a clear edge in order to pass this exam.

SPECIAL EXAMINATION is a complex medical test comprised currently of 336 questions taken over a seven hour time period. This test is given by the Federation of State Boards to Physicians who have been out of practice for a prescribed period of time depending upon their state medical board. The test covers a range of medical specialties. Books that are available are of quasi help to potential test takers. Currently the passing grade necessary is 75. Without proper direction the failure rate is extremely high. The Federation of State Medical Boards claims if you review current medical literature that would prepare you for this exam, not so. Based on the clinical sections of the USMLE the SPEX requires the potential test taker to study a wide field of information. As a tutor for this exam I direct physicians on how manage their study efforts. I have taken this exam three times in the last 25 years including recently. Knowledge of the exam contents will give the examinee a better chance of moving towards a passing grade. This will save both time and money to the examinee. In the event you need help and guidance how to study for the SPEX please contact me at platomd@gmail.com. You will find the expense well worth it. Mark Davis, MD
