AAO-HNS Marketplace

The convenience of the ONLINE EXAM format includes:

  • Unrestricted access from any computer: no program to load
  • Downloadable exam pdf: finish the test offline - just return to fill in your answers and submit 
  • Easy submission of completed exam
  • Red Book article reprints and Symposium Booklet provided in print format

A stable  email address is required for the online exam format. Exam login information will be mailed to subscribers. Online exam format subscribers will login to a specified website to take and submit the exam. Users will also have the option to save a PDF of the exam questions to complete offline before returning to enter their responses and submit their exam. Once the answer to a question has been submitted, the correct response and commentary is revealed.

Exams submitted prior to the deadline will not be scored or recorded until the exam deadline date.  To validate accuracy, answers to some questions may be adjusted once all exams are scored for the deadline. Therefore, the preliminary score received on exam submission may not be the final score.
