I was curious if anyone has experience with doing the BRS questions. How do they to step 1? (I would ask how they compare to school examination, but I guess that depends on the program).

Are BRS easier, the same, or harder than the general Step 1 question? I'm trying to get a reference for how I'm doing. I've been scoring between 67-80% depending on the chapter. Just trying to gauge how good, average, or bad that is.

UWorld questions are comparable. USMLERx questions are easy and not worth your time during dedicated board prep time but would be useful when you are first learning the material.

I haven't taken Step 1 yet, but I usually scored worse on BRS than on NBME exams. Some of this may be because I used BRS questions to study and just knew the material better by test day, but usually I scored about 10-20% higher on NBME than I had on the BRS questions.

I loved the BRS series back in the day. Good times.
