    Hi USMLERx,

    I used Flash Facts about a year back and I loved the product because it helped me get to know First Aid inside and out. However, I noticed that the cards were in order according to the page in First Aid and became very predictable on what the next card or question is going to be making it less "high yield." Has a randomize option become available since I last used the product?

    When will the 2011 page references be updated? Small, but fairly annoying, detail for those of us who purchased the 2011 ed. of the book.

    How many self assessments are there in Step 1 Qmax?

    How accurate are these assements to the actual USMLE scores, and how do you calculate the correlation?

    "Predictive of actual USMLE performance." How is this measured? Are there testimonies?

    Does the question bank allow one choose questions in blocks of office, ER, Inpatient, Community clinic etc. like the Step 3 exam?
    Thank you.

    What's the breakdown of the step 2 CK test bank? It seems like some of the test banks have 60+% medicine questions. Is there a good amount of the other subjects?

    Yes, there’s a shuffle feature in the 2010 iPad/iPhone app (which is under review by iTunes right now). This feature is on the Flash Facts/Flash Cards on the USMLERx site as well (www.usmlerx.com).

    The 2011 Flast Facts for First Aid Step 1 will be available soon and also has the shuffle feature.

    +1, I'm also interested in knowing the answer to this question.

    Also, what is the cost structure for USMLERx subscriptions?

    Does the Step 3 USMLERx provide CCS practice software or CCS practice cases or just the mcq part? If not, are there any plans in the future to provide the CCS practice?

    Will you post the correlations in step 1 performance and Rx performance? Quite a few of us on here already have a subscription, and we're trying to see just how good of an indicator this thing is, since it's not as well known as uworld and Kaplan for quality and score prediction...

    Does this mean the page numbers will no longer match the 2010 First Aid? Will we have the option to keep the old page numbers?

    You say there are ways both online and through ipod/iphone to access the questions. If you are interested in both options (depending on the day), is there a way to sync so that it knows which questions of a test bank you have gone through?

    Can one reset the STEP 1 Qmax once during your subscription? For instance after going through the question once, can all the question be reset to "unused"?

    The predicted score calculates on the most recent two weeks of data with 200 questions completed. It recalculates once in a 24-hour period. USMLERx provides a 3-digit possible score.

    The Step 1 Qmax uses the same interface as the actual FRED V2 interface for the Step 1 exam, so what you see in the test bank is what you will get on exam day.

    About 15 self assessments in Qmax if that is all you are using it for.
    Again, the predictor is based on your performance on at least 200 questions in a trailing two week periods compared against actual USMLE performance of past test takers. USMLERx is usually within 20 points of your actual performance. Yes, there are students who have used it and told us that we were accurate.

    There's no solid answer for that question. It's totally user dependent, and method of using the test bank as well.

    That's amazing! Do you get access to the android flashcards when you purchase the qbank or is it separate?
