No matter how much money you spend on books, every medical student needs to do a ton of practice questions for the USMLE Step 1.
Questions are an excellent way to learn the useful tip-offs and keywords, and—depending on the source—get a better feel for the board format. I believe USMLEWorld is the best question bank out there—despite its draconian efforts to prevent IP theft—and there is no free source out there that matches it especially for the final marathon push before the big day.
That said, there are other ways to study, especially during the basic science years. For question books, post-Step MS3s and your local Half-Price Books are always good resources to buy study materials on the cheap. But free is better, and the internet is undeniably convenient and portable.
I scoured the web to find free question banks online updated May Osmosis, a new free player, adds in a lot as well. For more information on how I personally would recommend studying, feel free to peruse my post: Your website linked me to a site that has really oriented my studying, i feel more confident in, and better prepared for my step 1. Thank You so much for such helpful info. So many links which inspire and help me feel more prepared.
I remember there was a question a day Twitter account from Kaplan last year, but I was unable to find it again today. The Kaplan Qbank is good if one has already gone through UWorld twice.
I also liked the Robbins and Coltan Pathology review question book. Anything else I think is generally not a great use of time. Thank you very much for your help. Also want to let you know that Wiki Test Prep is no longer available.
Thanks a lot Ben, Your list is very helpful Keep the good job, be a blessing to others. Hi Ben, Firstly, I say thanks for this great site. Well organized but a bit mind-numbing death by bullet list for me. I have planned on starting with step 1,i dont know when i will write the exams because i dont have the study materials.
Please see this post about how I recommend studying for Step 1. After that, most would agree that First Aid is the most essential step review book. There are tons of specific review books for anatomy, biochemistry, pathology, etc. I discovered your weblog using msn. This is a very neatly written article.
Thanks qbankk the post. My recommendations for shelf exams and textbooks are here. I just came across your blog and its really helpful, thanks!

I am qvank starting to learn for Step1 after taking Step2 already, because I am an international medical graduate. I found those Lectures very helpful to use another medium. Now I it seems to be difficult to find any free lectures for Step1 I think Kaplan erased all lectures on youtube. Do you have any recommendations? If you find any, please let me know kqplan I can include them above.
Can i pass exam by suding first aid and doing usmle Q bank only? Without studing kaplan lec notes? It would be an added credential for healthcare related fields, like some consulting gigs, research etc, though even those would benefit much more from a residency background. I find this just perfect, thanks for sharing… what do you recommend, I read kaplan lectures about 1 year ago and star doing questions with kaplan qbank and uworld until 4 months ago, but a have to stop cause personal problems I wanna know what do you recommend, should I study lectures all over again or should I star again with questions and first Aid?

Generally, I would continue with questions and supplement with book reading on a per-topic basis as needed. I went through the question bank in usmlequickprep. I find that questions are segregated subject wise. However within the subject, it is not topic wise. I mean i cannot read a chapter from First Aid and then attempt questions. I would have to be fairly thorough in the subject to attempt the question banks. All question banks are like that. How should i prepare?
How should i use question banks? For long term supplementation with UWorld over a year, you can indeed subfilter questions. Hi BenI was excited to discover this website through you. However it does not let me access after I make my qbahk and password.
Alsonot free Q banks but free online classes and seminars some upto 4 hrs long are available by kaplan centre and becker. Wbank pick up a topic and teach very interactively presenting with good quality board style questions at the end.
Steven daugherty are all there but my all time favourite is an anatomy professor forgot his name because he hasnt taken any classes 210 months now. Confucing answer choice A year-old boy is severely burned. Nitrogen loss qbahk during the first few days after the burn. During this acute period, which of the following substances plays a major role in nitrogen loss? A When the body is stressed, physiologically or pathologically, cortisol option A is produced in greater quantities than normal.
In this case, severe burns is the stressor which would lead to an increase in cortisol. As a glucocorticoid, cortisol will increase protein catabolism which will increase nitrogen loss. E 20110 option E released by the thyroid plays a part in increasing metabolic rate but would not specifically be involved in protein catabolism and thus nitrogen loss. Cortisol changes rapidly with stress thinks stress dosing for people with adrenal insufficiency when sick, for surgery, etc.
Summarized for your particular question P: Nitrogen loss was quicker to rise with all 3 counter-regulatory hormones, but reached the same level in both groups within 3 days. 210, the authors concluded that the sustained nitrogen loss kaplah almost entirely explainable by the effect of cortisol alone. Why does Sapphire need my phone number before I even know the value of their services? Silly but probably not nefarious, I think.
I got the impression it was made by an individual, hence probably not well proofed and containing mistakes.
Regardless, I always give fake phone info online. No website I use needs to call me!
How does Kaplan’s Qbank stand up against the competition?
I have been graduated from a Medical University from oversea on After completion residency, I have worked for one years in a hospital. Then, I have joined one of the international agencies to support them in public health and later on, involved in other development issues, out of my professional field.
Now, I am in the US with family three kids and spouse. I need your kind advice and your experiences. I wish I qbznk more to say on this for you. The question is basically as difficult to answer as it would be for someone qbankk wanted to apply from scratch. A lot of college students ask if trying to be a doctor in the US is worth it.
And the only correct response is: See how it feels and go from there. Qbnk Ben, The links toand sample items are not accessible. If you want to access to something old, you can always do so from an archived cache such as from archive.
I know a lot of them overlap. If not, I qbabk pay for your qbahk to do explanations just like you did for the Freeperhaps with a bit more details. You can also share them with others; I do not mind. Please let me know. You may also contact me in person via my email.
A pdf file is also available from the above link, which contains the same questions for your offline viewing pleasure. Pastest is a question commercial qbank that happens to be temporarily free as they polish their product.
Totally free but requires a login. Registration required, pretty robust software tutor mode, tracks prior questions, etc. Many questions are more on the Step 2 side of things, but an impressive collection nonetheless. The questions are not step-style but rather content review.
There are also no kaplqn or goofy diagrams like the book series. There are 20 modules of kxplan questions for questions.
Wiki Test Prep [now defunct, but with questions available as a pdf for download] is was a student-written qbank with over questions with explanations. The site is great, and you can browse questions by keyword, flag questions, and create your own kqplan.
It also lets you know what percentage of students answer the question correctly, which is interesting.
