Multimedia DVD Review Set for PA Students and PA Programs - 2013 Edition

The Emory PA Program has produced a unique home study board review DVD available for  Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, MP3 audioplayers  and some Smartphones . Study at home, at school, on the go...  An electronic version of the Fall 2012 Board Review is now available.  Each lecture consists of a split screen format with a window displaying the lecturers' PowerPoint slides and the other window displaying video of the lecturer. The Electronic Review is now available for the same price in two formats, as either a Windows XP/ Windows 7/ Vista DVD or a Mac two DVD set.

The DVD format includes the bonus feature of extra audio-only files of all the lectures that can be uploaded and played on portable MP3 players.  Both sets include a bonus PDA- DVD of video files with narrated power point slides for viewing on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad,  and Android devices. This allows users  to review 4 ways: On the PC with the speaker video and slides; PDA video of the narrated slides; reading the PDF handouts in print or on screen; and, MP3 audio only for  jogging, car rides, etc.  See the demonstration link above for a short video of this bonus feature.

NEW: The student copy has the OPTION of  2 weeks of unlimited online PANCE/PANRE-type practice tests from Exam Master (see http://www.exammaster.com/other-health-fields/physician-assistant). This is activated by the user when you want to use your two weeks (recommended after reviewing the entire home study). There is an additional $10 charge per copy for this access with the student edition. 

The Windows version requires Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6+ (free at http://www.microsoft.com) and the latest version of Windows Media Player (free at http://www.microsoft.com). Your computer will need a sound card and speakers to hear the audio. The Windows-version Review requires either Windows XP, Windows 7, or Vista operating systems. The Mac Version is compatible with Apple/Mac operating systems using Safari or Firefox web browsers and Flash video player. Windows users must accept ActiveX content when playing the Review and make Internet Explorer the preferred web browser (Not Firefox or other browsers). The DVD format can be played in a DVD or DVD/CD combination drives of a laptop or desktop PC. The DVD will not play in a free-standing DVD player. A high speed connection (DSL or cable) is NOT required for this Electronic Review, but is needed to use the online Exam Master practice tests.

As a demonstration of the (Windows Internet Explorer) format utilized for the Certification / Recertification Review recording, you may view the complete lecture on "A Review of Hematology", presented by Allan Platt, PA-C. Mr Platt is a popular lecturer at state and national conferences. A copy of the lecture handout is also available. To view this demonstration you will need a current (i.e., Version 6 or higher) version of Internet Explorer and of Windows Media Player ( Version 10). A high speed connection (Cable or DSL) is required. Please be patient as the video file buffers and prepares to play; this may take a minute or two. Please note that this demonstration utilizes streaming files over the Internet. As bandwidth and connection speed can affect your reception of this file, we have chosen to release the final Certification / Recertification set only as a DVD set which will not require an internet connection. If you are prompted by your Browser that "Active X" content is detected, please "allow blocked content" to view the demo.
