“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Pass Machine course. This Anesthesiology BASIC prep course features 33 hours of laser-focused lectures and an 800+ question Q Bank. But here’s the rub – all that great content will do you no good if you don’t get through it in time for the exam. Here are a few examples of the ease of preparing with The Pass Machine: 1) listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work, 2) answer a few MCQs on your lunch break, 3) watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike, and 4) when you know you’ll be on call without Wi-Fi or cellular signal, download lectures to your phone ahead of time. Works great on flights as well!
Here at American Physician Institute we’re dedicated to your board success. That’s why we offer you a better-than-money-back pass guarantee. We don’t succeed unless you succeed.”
Yours in board exam success,
Jack Krasuski, MD, Executive Director
The “QBL” Method
Detailed Study Guide
Laser-Focused Lectures: The Pass Machine Anesthesiology BASIC board review course is comprised of 800+ short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABA® Anesthesiology BASIC Exam blueprint. The modules are organized into lectures covering all related exam “keywords.” Thus, you effectively review every required exam topic and nothing else, acquiring increased mastery of the material in less time.
The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, the lectures use a method called “Question-Based Learning.” Lectures are constructed from a series of board-style multiple choice questions, each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question’s topic.
Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board preparation. The two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant.
Anesthesiology BASIC Study Guide: This course companion makes it easy to follow along with lectures, take notes, and study offline. The PDF includes the complete course syllabus, with all referenced slides, photos, illustrations, and infographics. (Printed version also available at checkout.)
BOARD-STYLE PRACTICE EXAMS
Comprehensive Q Bank
Realistic Test Environment
Optimized for Learning
Deep Question Bank: You can test your exam preparedness by answering the 800+ board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQ) included with your course. Questions carefully follow the board content outline, so each one advances your mastery of exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the boards test you. You learn how to answer questions in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
Optimized for Learning: The MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.

The Pass Machine’s Stress-Free Board Prep
The top FAQ we receive is, “How do I best prepare for the board exam?” Since prep differs for each person, our Anesthesiology BASIC Board Course accommodates many learning styles:
- Highly organized lectures AND extensive Q Bank
- Online study AND live course attendance
- Solo study AND colleague interaction
- Smart phone app AND desktop access
Why this depth of options is crucial to success:
- Your days are hectic and study time is limited. The Pass Machine course makes every minute count by providing only highly board-relevant and board-reflective content. Anything not relevant to the exam has been stripped out leaving you with only the nuggets.
- Integrating information is improved when consumed in multiple ways: Our substantial Q Bank allows you to learn from completing 800+ multiple choice questions with explanations. But answering questions is often not enough to fully master the material. That’s why the course includes 33 hours of systematically-organized lectures so the pieces easily fall into place.
- Anywhere, anytime, and offline access increases time spent preparing, thus increasing your chances of success. The Pass Machine Anesthesiology BASIC Course can be accessed through our desktop Learning Management System and our synched smart phone app, the latter allowing uploading of course material for use when Wi-Fi or cellular signal is not available.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Describe the fundamentals of current anesthetic procedures.
- Explain regional anesthesia.
- Develop a plan for pain management and painful disease states.

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I just took the BASIC exam after having used this API review course and passed on the first try. This course has easy-to-follow lectures and great powerpoints to accompany each lecture. It focuses on material relevant to the board exam and goes in depth instead of trying to cover too much. I liked the ability to speed up or slow down the lecture and also that I was able to download and print the powerpoints since I like to write out my notes. I would recommend this course to my colleagues.”
Paul Cheng, MD, Chicago, IL
“After doing terrible on my ITE, my advisor strongly recommended purchasing this course. I’m so glad I did! It helped me organize my thoughts and gave me structure to learning a subject that’s not very easy to learn! I passed my exam and it made this course worth every penny! Thank you!”
Theresa Gerges, DO, Livingston, NJ
“This course helped me ensure that I covered all necessary topics leading into the exam. As this is a new exam for the ABA I felt in the dark and with API’s help I was able to successfully navigate through the appropriate material to ensure a passing score! Thanks!”
John Dolerschell, MD, Overland Park, KS
“This was the first board exam I walked out of completely confident- not only that I had passed, but that I had done well. So happy I chose American Physician Institute; I’ll definitely choose them again for the Advanced exam.”

Brandon Merling, MD, Chicago, IL
“I took the second ever Basic exam and felt a bit of unease leading into the test, but this was lessened by having a lecture series and question banks that were developed directly from the ABA BASIC Outline. The lectures as well as question banks left me extremely prepared for the exam. The software was easy to use, the question banks and detailed explanations very easy to read, and I would highly recommend this to colleagues.”
Nathan Belt, MD, Worcester, MA

Saad Karmal, MD, Naperville, IL

Karl Takabayashi, MD, Torrance, CA
“The lectures were incredible. I got questions right on the test primarily because they were covered in the lecture. The best part is that i actually learned and understood the material as oppose to just beating a test. I will buy this again for the advanced and i will recommend this course to all the new CA 1. In addition i will keep all my notes for my own review and study. Thanks!”
