this might sound a bit bizarre, but i am considering doing qbank twice this summer, back to back. first time through will be untimed non-random, second round timed random. hopefully my timing will be better, and maybe even my knowledge.

this is of course in addition to many other Q sources . . .

anyway, tell me what you think . . .

I'm on my third time through Q bank. My score is in the low 90s and I have a stack of detailed notes on each question. OCD? Maybe, but I wanna rock this thing.

Two weeks til test date, I've probably done 7-8 thousand questions so far from Q Bank Q book and all the Rapid Reviews.

I swear once you do so many questions, there's nothing left they can ask you. Plus when you get thrown a question you've never seen before your mind and body just seem to pick the right answer like its a reflex.. and you don't really know why you picked the right answer you just know there's some association that you instinctually recognized. It's a beautiful thing :thumbup:

Good god people

If you've done all the questions you can find, you should probably take the test as soon as possible. The goal is to be a Step 1 expert, not a QBank expert, and I think prolonging your use of QBank will only hurt you on topics that it doesn't cover.

Just a couple of years ago, doing 2000 questions (once) was considered hardcore.

The answer to every Q bank question can be found in FA. No one believes me but it's true. Whether in theory, or some very close associated theory, or even being explicit, every concept and answer to every question is in FA. FA and Q bank are all you need :cool:

Pretty bold statement considering you haven't taken the real thing yet.

I do agree that they'll get you pretty far, however. I guess it depends on what "you need."

Funny how people refuse to listen to those who have ACTUALLY TAKEN THE EXAM.

By the way marie, your assertion that there's nothing left they can ask you is so full of arrogance and naivete I don't know where to begin.
