I vouch for the as many questions as possible policy. Regardless of whether this is ITE/Basic/Advanced my quality rankings would be as follows:
1) ACE Exams
4) Reading Open anesthesia old stems
I have no experience with AnesthesiaQbank and hadn’t heard of it prior to today.
The ACE exams provide relevant questions, especially for advanced exam, and have excellent explanations. TrueLearn is a decent representation of content with the added bonus of some questions being lifted from ITEs and likely prior advanced etc exams so you may get a bonus gimme if there a repeat (I did). M5 I found too opinionated and his/her idea of what is relevant has become less and less accurate over the 5 years I used it. Hall is largely irrelevant but is arguably better than nothing.
I am so curious which would be more useful for the Advanced exam aside from TrueLearn. Reading through forums, I have heard conflicting things about ACE questions, and while M5 is a favorite of many, many have also said that it hasn't helped for the advanced. Hall seems to be not as useful as well. Anyone who has done anesthesiaqbank have any thoughts? I'm debating on using some of the remaining time left on either M5 or Anesthesiaqbank
I just took the ITE and Basic in the past few months. The ONLY resource I used for the entirety of the year was True Learn, it's about 2000 questions for both exams combined. I thoroughly read the explanations for every answer choice and retook all my incorrect questions. It feels very similar to uworld which was a comfortable learning experience for me. I did not supplement with any textbook or other question bank. I did fairly well on the ITE and passed the basic with that method.
