ABO Examination Review Course

Due to unforeseen circumstances the "Live ABO/NCLE Exam Review" has been rescheduled to August 5 & 6, 2017

If you were registered for the course during WCBV then POF has sent an email to registrants advising them of the rescheduling or a full refund.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POF and all other exam review courses can only be a part of a comprehensive study program. Successful exam candidates have used these POF exam review courses to answer questions and solidify knowledge gained by studying the recommended materials in advance of the reviews and exams. Both ABO & NCLE exams cover vast areas of knowledge from years of experience. We strongly recommend that you use this review course in conjunction with adequate individual study of quality review materials.  POF’s recommended study guides for both the ABO and NCLE exams are available on the POF Marketplace of this website.
