    IF YOU HAD TO MASTER A QUESTION SOURCE WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

    QBANK?
    USMLEWORLD?
    USMLERX?
    OTHER?


    i guess i have a month to do questions and i'd like to master at least one....or is it better to try to skim as many questions as possible?

    thanks!:)

    many individuals I know used only Kaplan qbank (along with First Aid and review books) and were able to score 230+ (some 260+). Seems tried and proven, though others here will probably tell you different.

    They haven't done studies on those question banks to see which produces a score above 230. It would require a large case study spanning many years.:eek:

    USMLE World just added a Step 1 qbank last year, right? If so, then wouldn't it still be too early to tell?

    Well Qbank is tried and true, but right now every bank seems to have strengths and weaknesses. Finding out which one fits you best is probably more important than finding out which one gave Med Student X a 230+.

    Anything your bank can do, mine can do better.

    I'm using USMLEworld PUNK, what do you say to that? That's right: Nothing, you can't say anything to that. You're such a wuss.

    I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
    If I fail, if I succeed
    At least I'll live as I believe
    No matter what they take from me
    They can't take away my USMLEworld
    Because the greatest question bank of of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest question bank of all
    Inside of the internet
    The greatest question bank of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love USMLEworld
    It is the greatest question bank of all

    You might not be so impressed if you knew that Medikit likes to kick kittens just like this...

    You don't want to laugh at a kitten kicker, do you?

    You get jealous so easily. While I'm out there kicking kittens you're killing them off once a day, so don't get all high and mighty on me.
