I’ve found 3 or 4 anki decks for the EM shelf on Reddit/google, is there one that’s considered the gold standard? I’m just interested in passing the shelf, I don’t need to honors or anything. Thanks!

I used Anking and EM Basic. The practice NBME was also very helpful (repeat questions on the actual shelf from the practice NBME). So was Rosh review but, not sure that's necessary if youre not applying EM.
