    I would like to mention my dissatisfaction with a website called Absite.org. I spent $75 for it hoping to gain the same online-test-style benefits as Kaplan Q bank. It was an enormous mistake.

    The questions are supposedly written by residents, which is hard to believe since the grammar, spelling, and editing are so poor. There are no explanations for why wrong answers are wrong and very little as to why the correct are correct. When you get an answer wrong a screen pops up and says "You have CHOOSED Incorrect answer!! (sic) I did 2 questions and was so offended at the scope and editing that I asked for a refund. The "anonymous" response said they do not offer refunds for dissatisfied customers. This is a pathetic website and I urge you all to steer clear. My recommendations are Fiser's Absite review and Johns Hopkins Absite Review for questions.

    Are you an intern? Have you ever taken the absite?

    ABSITE.ORG is more like the actual absite than anything else out there. It's pretty good.

    To each his/her own but the questions are good and very similar to the real thing.

    I've also used absite.org, and I completely agree with the first post. I found several questions with incomplete answers, and some that were just completely wrong. Also, I think the fact that you can only take the tests twice makes it way overpriced.

    Also, the Fiser review and hopkins for questions is the way to go. I have yet to find a good online question bank.
