    hello,
    i posted this thread in STEP 2 because there is a lot of discrepancy in STEP 1 forum about what Question bank is better. So i thought why not i ask people who have completed their STEP 1 on which Question bank do you think is better for STEP 1.

    Some of the Question bank i have heard of are the famous qbank, USMLErx, and USMLEworld.

    i would appreciate any opinions. thanks

    I used Qbank for both step1 and step2 and they worked great.

    My guess is you aren't going to get a very good answer here, since most people only do one questionbank, so how can they compare to one they haven't done? They could have done just as well using both.

    I think using any of the main ones and doing it thoroughly will prepare you well. good luck!

    I agree with you ... but maybe someone can tell me...how their question bank reflected the real thing.

    QBank for both for me were great prep....quite a few word-for-word questions, I was very prepared for the level of content. And I know someone else mentioned everyone used usmleworld for step 2, well I don't think anyone at my school did, so there's probably more variation than we think.

    First Aid and Kaplan Qbank, that's what (almost) everyone at my school did for step 1.
