Good news. The CNBA review is more affordable compared to other part IV reviews. It should also be noted that some reviews are not offered in certain states, which forces certain students to fly to these reviews, spending more money on plane tickets, and hotels. With the CNBA review, you will not need to attend tedious and tiring lectures.
You will have the opportunity to study at your convenience, at your own pace, and at a much earlier time. Most importantly, the review is paperless, which means with a click of the mouse you will be able to quickly navigate from section to section or find topics in the review with ease.
The CNBA review covers strategic concepts and important information regarding the NBCE Part IV Examination not taught in chiropractic schools. It is important for every student to know this information prior to taking the examination.
This review is also excellent for those who can not attend a review course due to work or other reasons. It is also excellent for those who have taken other review courses and yet seem to be unsure, confused, or feel that they are not fully prepared.
The CNBA review contains tons of images, videos as well as multiple Practice X-ray and Clinical Cases unlike any other review course, which significantly help the studying process. We have also included rollover images for the orthopedic examinations, which show the action of the examination as you scroll your mouse pointer over the image along with detailed explanations.
The manner in which the CNBA review is structured and presented helps the learning process significantly.
A: The CNBA review covers the part IV examination from all angles and gives you a total understanding of the examination. It discusses important and common facts, cases, and scenarios that may be presented by NBCE. It guides you through the examination and helps you develop an understanding of how the examination is presented and what is expected of you during the examination. Sample cases, strategic concepts, detailed notes, videos, images, narrations, Over 150 practice X-ray tests as well as 40 in-depth Practice Clinical Cases are included in the review to help you fully prepare for the examination.
The CNBA review contains the following sections
Introduction -- The Introduction section of the CNBA review describes the Part IV examination in detail and explains how the examination is administered. It contains a video that takes you through the examination step by step and explains the process and the format of the examination. It also contains notes that discuss what is expected of you during the examination and likely scenarios that will be presented. It contains samples of how the questions will be addressed and how the cases will be presented. The Introduction section is very helpful and will allow you to understand exactly how the Part IV examination is administered and what is expected of you.
Case History -- The Case History section contains detailed notes and important information regarding your role during the history taking portion. It contains detailed notes and includes important questions that should be addressed during the history taking section. It is very important that you are familiar with these questions during the examination.
Physical Examination -- This section covers the most important and necessary examinations/tests that are commonly addressed during the Part IV examination. It covers specific areas that are important and also discusses certain areas or examinations that are less important and less likely to be asked by NBCE (this process is fully explained in the review). Strategic concepts and sample cases are presented so that you may develop a better understanding of how the Physical Examination section is presented and how you should approach the patient in this particular station.
Orthopedic -- The Orthopedic review section contains detailed notes, and rollover images, which show how each examination is performed as you scroll your mouse pointer over each image. It also describes how each examination should be performed and discusses the positive signs and clinical findings for each orthopedic examination. The Orthopedic section of the CNBA review contains more than 120 Orthopedic examinations commonly asked on the Part IV Examination.
Neurology -- The Neurology section is detailed, organized, and covers the most important neurological examinations and topics that you will likely be tested on. This section is very helpful, and again contains strategic concepts to help you understand what is expected of you during the examination.
Clinical Laboratory -- The Clinical Laboratory section consists of notes and samples of how this section may be incorporated along with the Part IV Examination. This section covers majority of the important blood chemistries that you are required to know.
Technique -- The Technique section contains detailed notes, images, videos, and explanations for each "set-up". It should be noted that you will be asked to perform "set-ups" that are not usually taught in your chiropractic schools and must be performed by NBCE's standards. These set-ups are unique and are explained in the CNBA review.
Diagnostic Imaging -- The Diagnostic Imaging review contains general review notes on the most common conditions presented during the NBCE part IV Examination as well as multiple practice tests/examinations for you to test your knowledge.
CNBA Review X-Ray Testing Section
This is the main feature and the highlight of the Diagnostic Imaging review. This section allows you take multiple practice exams/tests with digital x-ray images to help you prepare for the actual examination. The style of the questions and the types of cases presented are highly similar to the actual NBCE Part 4 X-ray Examination, and we are certain that these practice tests will give you the knowledge and the confidence you need to do well on the main examination!
The Diagnostic Imaging Review is also offered separately (Please see under products for more information).
Practice Cases -- The Practice Cases Section of the CNBA Review is one of the most important sections. This section will give you an opportunity to take multiple practice exams/tests of conditions that have appeared and are likely to appear again on the actual NBCE Examination. Please note that this review does NOT guarantee that the same/identical types of radiographic images or identical types of questions will appear on the Part 4 Examination. It is important to understand that NBCE can generate so many different cases/scenarios/questions for a given condition or pathology and thus make it challenging for the student. Therefore, we highly advise that you do NOT memorize the cases presented in this review but rather take the time to study each of the conditions and their clinical presentations in detail.

"These guys provide a quality product. I graduated in 1996 and practiced for a number of years prior to pursuing a career in education. An opportunity passed into my life requiring retrieving my license. Without CNBA Review, I'm certain I wouldn't have passed! Thanks so much!"
