  3. 3. frequently asked questions 3Who should register for this meeting?This meeting was specifically designed for those preparing for the ABPS and ABPOPPMexams. It offers a comprehensive review of basic podiatric medical/surgical procedures andinformation. By taking this course, it in no way guarantees the attendee will pass the exam.This course is not intended for those taking the American Podiatric Medical Licensing Ex-amination (APMLE) Parts I, II, and III. Past attendees have included those who need to earna large number of CE Contact Hours, DPMs preparing for state licensing boards, and thosepodiatrists who want an overall review of podiatry.If I am recertifying, should I take just the Recertification Course or the entire ReviewCourse? The entire four-day Review Course provides a thorough update of topics pertimentto podiatric medicine as listed on the previous page. The Recertification Course is designedto cover the topics that past exam participants have told us appear on the test. However, thetests and questions change each year, so it can be advantageous to attend the entire course.The material provided in the two-day Recertification Course is meant as a refresher; DPMsshould already be familiar with the basic information.I will take the Recertification test right after your course—how can I prepare in ad-vance? The Foundation plans the dates for its meetings many years in advance, but we haveno control over when other organizations schedule their meetings and/or testing dates. TheFoundation suggests you take our Review/Recertification Course a full year in advance ofwhen you plan to recertify, as our meeting and the testing dates for recertification tend to oc-cupy a similar time frame. If you are planning to recertify in 2013 and want to take the 2013 Recertification Course,we suggest you purchase the 12th Edition Study Guide in advance for $275. Please see page8 for information about ordering the Study Guide in advance of the meeting (for Recertifi-cation Course attendees ONLY). It can also be beneficial to purchase and view previouslyrecorded Review Course lectures in our Online Lecture Library (see page 13 of this catalog).What if I can’t participate in the meeting in person?If you won’t be able to make it to Philadelphia in February, you can register to participatein the course online, so you can view the lectures from your home or office, in real-time, asthey occur in the classroom (see page 6 & 7 of this catalog). If you still can’t be available toparticipate in the online version of the meeting, you can purchase the Foundation Study Guidefor $360 (page 8) and purchase lectures recorded from previous Review Courses from ourOnline Lecture Library (page 13).
