Self-Assessment Study Program SASP (2021)
The SASP is the AUA’s most popular study tool for exam preparation!
For over 40 years, the AUA's Self-Assessment Study Program (SASP) has been a leading educational resource for urologists-in-training and practicing urologists. Developed each year, the SASP is a 150-question, multiple-choice practice examination that addresses the core curriculum of medical knowledge and latest advances in patient care. The SASP may be taken open or closed book, and provides correct answers with detailed answer rationales, and scientific references.
Why is the SASP the AUA's most popular study tool for exam preparation?
Constructed in the same style as the AUA and ABU's multiple-choice examinations—and offered in three convenient formats to meet your unique study preference—SASP is the AUA's most popular study tool for exam preparation. SASP provides participants their scores, the average scores of their peers, and access to answer commentary and scientific references, allowing participants to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in various clinical areas and enrich their learning experience. Also, it is important to note that over 30% of the content of the ABU Lifelong Learning Knowledge Assessment comes directly from SASP!
