Philadelphia, November 29, 2012Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has released four new Medical Board Reviews Apps based on content from Elsevier’s popular medical board review titles:

“Studying for certification and recertification, particularly for medical board exams, is becoming increasingly mobile, and thus it is vital that we provide immediate access to this information at the user’s fingertips,” said Robert Sheehan, Mobile Product Director at Elsevier.  “The Medical Board Reviews apps provide invaluable information in a format that is practical, convenient and comprehensive.”

Core competencies can be tested to remedy weak areas through definitive explanations for questions that are not answered correctly.  The new mobile-optimized features include:
