    Was in the middle of an awesome 50-string set of questions on Kaplan... and then the lovely server-time-out error of death.

    Talk about breaking the state of mind. Oh well... I'll just have to keep clicking refresh to see what happens... +pissed+

    guys, sorry for this unrelated question, but are you allowed to print out questions/answers from Qbank? Or do all your notes have to be handwritten from the screen?

    Thanks!

    Hmmm... this is not my idea of convenient... i could only imagine if I had my test scheduled sooner and I was taking a full length practice test today.

    Still not up. Back to the BRS Path flash cards... :thumbup:

    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    With my exam in three days, this is terrible.

    With the amount of $$$ we pay for this service, we should be able to rely on it 24/7. And if the server does go down, fine, but not for hours or even a day.

    Unacceptable...what can we do about this?? We can try other questions but truthfully, I, like others, have focused our studying around QBank availability.

    Class action lawsuit it is... :smuggrin:

    it really can't take that long to fix a server ... they must be taking the night off or something ....

    grrrrr


    well, for alternatives you can do webpath, robbins, the usmle released items, or those 30 free questions from like usmle123 (or something like that) ...

    You can still check out explanations from old exams.... just in case you didn't review when first checking it out early on, and looking for something to do now (like i was). :oops:
