Well, when you say your score improved on Qbank, did you reuse old test questions? I think that if you see a question more than once, your chances of improving your score are high.
What are other people scoring on Qbank that will be taking USMLE step 1 this summer?
Keep your chin up, Sunflower. Q-bank is an awesome way to prepare for the test and it will help your score! Unfortunately, I ran out of time and only got to do ~1200 of the 2000 questions. My score generally improved as I continued to study review books along the way. I didn't repeat questions. My score depended on the section (some are harder than others). I started out getting 50-70% on average and scored ~ 70-80% closer to the test with the occassional 60%. I'm a firm believer that doing well depends on how much you can read and process in the short time you have to study. I put in 12-14 hour days during the three weeks we had off after classes ended. Ended up scoring almost 2 SD above the mean on the real deal...really surprised me 'cause I'm not that smart...no joke. Make studying your job and do everything you can to not get burnt out (coffee, change of scenery, reward system,etc). It'll pay off. Good luck.
I Agree I am not doing as well as I would Like On the Q bank questions and afew of the Questions I totaly dont agree with, some of them contradict one another, If you feel the Same way It would be great to discuss it but Im avg about 65% and I finished 25% of the Material.
