FAQs about the BCOP Review Course Package:

Does the price include everything?
Yes. $125 for 6-month access and $175 for 12-month access. Our goal is to make the review course simple and easy for you.  The BCOP Review Course contains 3 main components we believe are most beneficial for your preparation for the exam: 1. Immediate access to our BCOP Q-Bank, which contains over 470 practice test questions; 2. Immediate access to our BCOP Online Review Lecture Center, which provides you with links to Biostatistics online lectures series prior to the exam date; 3. Your own hard copy of the lecture notes with nominal shipping and handling.

Is it cheaper to purchase this package deal or subscribe to each service separately?
You save an estimated $39 by purchasing the BCOP Review Course Package.  The estimated savings is determined as if you were to purchase each service/item separately at what it is valued at.   

I am an international subscriber, can I purchase the BCOP Review Course with the lecture notes?
Unfortunately, no. We greatly value our many international subscribers and thoroughly researched options for mailing the course lecture notes. We have found however, that the mailing options are many times unreliable and we cannot guarantee that you will receive the notes. In addition, the mailing and customs costs were expensive making this option prohibitive to our customers. Therefore, we do not mail outside of the United States. When purchasing please choose the option without the hard copy of the course notes. We do not provide electronic copies of our material as we desire to protect the integrity of our information so that we may keep the cost of the review course affordable for all.


How long will I have access to the BCOP Review Course?

You will have access for 6-months or 1 year from the date of purchase. If more time is needed, we do typically offer active customers a discount for adding or purchasing more time. Additionally, you can earn extra time on your account through our referral program. For more information about the benefits of our referral program, please click here.


If I want to purchase or add more time to my BCOP Review Course accounts, can I do that at a discount?
Yes. As long as your account is active, you may log into your account and then click to add more time to your Q-Bank and/or purchase additional viewings of any lectures within the BCOP Online Lecture Center that you desire to view again at a discounted rate. Since the online review course is already significantly discounted, we do not offer any additional discounts for the review course package. 


In what order should I utilize the Q-Bank and Online Lectures?

We designed the review course and each component to allow you to customize your learning experience based on your personal needs. While this may vary for each person, most prefer to watch some of the lectures and then work on the questions, coming back to watch the lectures again prior to the exam.  Some will watch a lecture on a specific category (such as Cardiology) and then complete all of the practice test questions associated with the Cardiology section within their Q-Bank account.  


Approximately how long does it take to complete all of the material?
It depends on how in depth you take your preparation for the exam.  The minimum amount of time it would take to complete all of the BCOP practice test questions and flashcards in a back-to-back fashion would be about 6.5-7 hours straight.  There are approximately 6-7 hours of online lectures. Some people will be able to complete the questions and lectures quicker than this, but most will take at least this much time.  

Do you guarantee that I will pass the BCOP Exam if I do this review course?
No, we do not guarantee that you will pass as everyone's knowledge base, level of training, and experience is different. 


If I make a referral using the referral code provided in my account, will I gain longer access to both the BCOP Q-Bank and the BCOP Online Lecture Center?

Yes.  We greatly value and appreciate your referrals.  For every referral that results in the purchase of any item from High-Yield MED Reviews using your personal referral code, you will be rewarded with the addition of a 1-month extension to your active accounts.  This means that you will gain an additional month of access to both the BCOP Q-Bank and the BCOP Online Lecture Center page for each successful use of your referral code.  To read more about our referral program, please click here.

FAQs about Online Lecture Center

What topics are covered in the BCOP Online Lecture Center?
To see a list of the lecture topics available in the BCOP Online Lecture Center, click here.  We periodically add new lecture topics.  If that occurs while your account is still active, you will be given immediate access to those lectures for no additional cost.

Can I watch the online lectures available in the BCOP Online Lecture Center as many times as I want during my subscription?
When you purchase the BCOP Review Course, you gain access to the BCOP Online Lecture Center, which provides you with links for each available lecture.  You will receive 3 redemption periods for viewing each lecture.  To view a lecture, simply click "redeem" next to the desired lecture at the Online Lecture Center and you will be given 24 hours during which you may watch the lecture as many times as you would like. Similar to a movie rental from iTunes, during that 24-hour period of time, you may pause, stop, rewind or forward through the video as much as you would like. After that initial 24-hour period is over, you will still be able to redeem your additional viewing periods during which you may watch the lecture again, as long as your account is still active (i.e., 6-months or 1 year from the date of purchase). Most people watch each lecture once and then work on practice test questions in their Q-Bank before coming back to re-watch any desired lectures or content.


What does it mean that I can watch each online lecture for two - 24 hour periods of time?
Each lecture comes with (3), 24-hour viewing periods, which you may redeem at any time. For example, when you redeem 1 of the 3 viewing periods you have for each lecture, you will be given 24 hours to watch that online lecture. Similar to a movie rental from iTunes, during that 24-hour period of time, you may pause, stop, rewind or forward through the video as much as you would like.  After that initial 24-hour period is up, you will still be able to watch the lecture again whenever you redeem your additional viewing periods, as long as your account is still active (i.e., 6-months or 1 year from the date of purchase).  Most people will watch each lecture once and then work on practice test questions in their Q-Bank before coming back to re-watch any desired lectures or content.

 

Will I have the ability to re-purchase individual lectures within the review course for extra viewing once I have already taken advantage of my 2 redemptions?
Yes and at a discount! Once you have redeemed each of your 24 hour access periods for a specific lecture within the BCOP Online Lecture Center, you can purchase access to that specific lecture at a discounted price so that you can watch it a third time for another period of 24 hours.  


Are all of the online review course lectures available immediately?
Yes. All of the lectures in the Biostatistics Review Lecture Series are made available from the beginning.


Are there any discounts for renewing access to items within my account?
Yes.  We offer discounts for renewing Q-Bank subscriptions as well as re-purchasing individual online lectures found within your BCOP Online Lecture Center, as long as your account is still active (i.e., not expired). You can choose to renew or purchase a time extension for your BCOP Q-Bank account, or you can choose to add more viewing periods to one of the specific online lectures within the BCOP Online Lecture Center. Or you can do both - all at discounts.  Since the online review course is already significantly discounted, we do not offer any additional discounts for the entire review course package.


Can I share my personal account and access to BCOP Review Course with other people?

No.  Doing so is a violation of the terms and conditions of use that you will have to agree to at the time of purchase.  In addition, you would be subject to legal action taken against you.  We do monitor the number and locations of the IP addresses that access your account, as well as the time of day.  If we determine that your account is being shared or compromised, we reserve the right to shut down your account without notification or a refund to you ahead of time.  Furthermore, sharing your account will take away the number of viewings you have access to for the online lectures and will also mess up your statistics in Q-Bank, as it determines the questions that you have used and not used to help you stay on track with your personal planner.  Therefore, you will not be able to determine what you answered or how you answered the questions, since other people will have answered them as well.  For more information please read User Agreement and the Terms and Conditions.

Are there questions on biostatistics in my BCOP Q-Bank?
Yes - absolutely. We fully realize that biostatistics is a critical component to your success on the BCOP Exam.  You will not need to buy anything outside of your review course to cover this component. 

What other features does Q-Bank offer to aid in my studying?
Our advanced practice testing system offers a variety of unique features that make us stand out from other services.  Such features include a dashboard that allows you to customize your session to meet your specific needs, a personal planner, a performance report card, the ability to flag questions to come back to later, a visual strike through feature to help in narrowing down the answer choices, the ability to set a timer for your session, the ability to see statistics on how others like you answered that same question and a rational section with supporting medical references to help you understand the concept being addressed in the question. 

What is the personal planner in my Q-Bank?
When you begin using your Q-Bank account, you will be asked a few questions that will allow the system to generate a personalized plan so you know what to do on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis in order to finish everything.  Don't worry if you get off track or get ahead - the personal planner will adjust the plan accordingly.  This is one of many unique features we offer to enhance your learning experience and aid in your success. 

What type of performance statistics will I be able to see in my BCOP Q-Bank that will help me to monitor my progress?
Access to your performance statistics is another unique feature that we offer with your Q-Bank subscription.  As you answer the practice test questions, the system will keep track of how many questions you have completed, still need to complete and have flagged to view at a later time.  In addition, it provides you with a performance report card on your progress.  The system will show how many questions you are getting right and wrong and will identify domains or categories where you are strong and weak so that you can re-adjust your studying to aid in your success. 

FAQs about the Review Course LECTURE NOTES

Do I get a paper copy of the lecture notes for all of the material covered in the online lectures?
Yes, you will have access to the slides in print format (i.e., paper copy) so that you can make notes and have a valuable resource to refer back to at a later time.  To see a sample of the lecture notes click here.


How long will it take to receive my lecture notes once I have purchased access to the BCOP Online Review Course?
In most cases, we ship out notebooks by U.S. Postal Service priority mail within 24 hours of the order or next available business day (if the order is received on the weekend or on or before a holiday).  On average it takes up to 3-5 business days to receive your notebook. You will however have immediate access to your Q-Bank and Online Lecture Center and do not have to wait on the notebook in order to start. 


Who do you ship with?
We typically ship with the United States Postal Service.


Is there a point in time when it becomes too late to order the lecture notes?
If you purchase the review course, you will receive your own hardcopy of the review course lecture notes. However, if you wait too long to purchase access to the review course you may not receive your lecture notes before your exam date.  It takes on average about 3-5 business days for your notes to be delivered; please plan ahead so that your preparation for the exam is not compromised.  We recommend purchasing in advance to allow enough time to receive maximum benefit of the review course.
