Easy access to practice!


A friend told me about this app and I'm so glad he did! I'm using the USMLE First Aid book too, but that thing is a brick to carry around. This way I have practice readily available. When I'm waking up and wanna stay in the blankets a bit longer, at long traffic lights, in line, wherever! I feel like I can always learn something.
The explanations are to the point and clarifying. They've even got the ability to improve a question with a quick email link that puts the question and everything in there for you. I haven't had to use it yet, but awesome feature!
I also really like being able to rate my answers "don't know", "somewhat know", or "know". And then be able to review the question in each category separately or all together. Helps me really hone in on the things I need to be reminded of.
Pricy, but no worse than any other worthwhile study tool for boards.

Great app for the price


I gave this five stars not because it's the best study tool out there, but because it is definitely one of the best for the price. It is not as comprehensive as some resources, and the practice questions are probably not as Step-like as some of the better ones, but it is definitely on par with some that cost a lot more and have fewer questions. It has +1000 questions altogether, divided by topic (eg, pathology) and subtopic (eg, inflammation), and each question comes with detailed explanations. Unlike other kinds of question apps I've seen, it also comes with a large library of mnemonics to help remember random facts. It is also very convenient to use, allowing you to get some studying done during both long and short periods of free time. Really couldn't recommend it more highly. It is definitely worth the price and the time in going through the questions.

Amazing for the price


They have great mnemonics, images... For 99 cents it was worth every penny, even if the questions are very first-order. You can't get the second order questions until you master the first order ones. I'd highly recommend it in addition to any other program you buy to start it first. Extra questions will not hurt your score. Probably worth at least $20-30
