Board Review Question of the Week

Match Wits with Fellow Trainees

Think you are smarter than everyone else? Now you can prove it. Participate each week in the Board Review Question of the Week. ACG experts will provide a question each week designed to test your knowledge to help you prepare for the Boards. Answer online and find out the following week if you answered correctly.

Questions will be posted beginning August 4, 2014 through June 23, 2014 and only ACG Trainee Members are eligible to win the quarterly prizes and the grand prize.

Once again, prizes will be given out quarterly to the trainee member who answers at least 75% of the questions in each quarter and has the highest number of correct answers:

  • Aug - Oct must answer at least 10 questions
  • Nov - Jan must answer at least 9 questions
  • Feb - Jun must answer at least 9 questions

The quarterly prize winner will receive a free copy of ACG's Online Self-Assessment Test. In case there is a tie, a drawing will be held to pick the winner.

To be eligible for consideration to win the grand prize of a $1,000 Travel Award to the 2015 ACG Annual Meeting in Honolulu, HI, trainees must participate in at least 75% of the total questions (at least 29 questions). The Trainee Member who answers the most questions correctly will be the ultimate winner. If there is a tie, ACG will have a drawing to see who wins.
