Study for your USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2CK, COMLEX, or MCAT exams while on the go. Knock out your daily Firecracker MD or Firecracker DO review tasks directly from the Daily Review mobile app.

The Firecracker Daily Review app is great for studying whenever you can find the time. You can quickly move through your Today’s To-Dos review of USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, COMLEX, or MCAT content, while on the bus to class, while winding down after a long day in the lab, or while in-between rounds during wards. The app was designed to sync your progress and performance with your desktop usage of Firecracker MD and Firecracker DO, meaning USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, COMLEX, or MCAT questions answered in either will be counted in the other. Best yet, if you lose access to an internet connection while on the move, the questions you've answered will sync once a connection is reestablished.

The Firecracker Daily Review app is intended to act as a companion to the core Firecracker MD and Firecracker DO desktop experiences. Your USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, COMLEX, or MCAT daily review tasks will appear in the mobile app each day, and you can create additional 'Get Ahead' tasks if you'd like to continue burning through your stack of high priority questions. You will also be able to solve your daily USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, or COMLEX diagnostic case.

Best Review App - Suggested Improvements


I love firecracker and I'm confident that it will help me score at least a 270 on step 1.

Pros: The customer support is quick to respond and they give you personalized help. They review material is comprehensive and uses spaced repetition which is proven to facilitate memorization. They have an auto-snooze function which prevents you from spending too much time on questions. There's both quick recall style questions and vignette questions. The interface is BEAUTIFUL and easy to navigate. It is synced to the online version, but the app is actually better (the auto-snooze desktop site is screwy).

Cons: The histopathology slides leave a little to be desired - there isn't enough description to guide the user about what the histopath shows and how it came to be. The "additional resources" seem a little disorganized like there were just thrown in there as a gimmick.

It can't keep track of questions


If I don't full finish a day of questions, the question total for the next day is all jacked up. The day will start with like 20/80 questions finished even tho I haven't done a single one yet. And if you do questions but leave a card open past midnight it will add all the cards you did in that session to the next day's total rather than the previous.
It's also annoying that you can't highlight words in the answers if you need to look something up


Nick the slick man chick man

This has helped me tremendously with medical school exams. I am sure it will also aid in improving my board scores as they approach. I have gotten several of my classmates to begin using firecracker and they have seen improvements in their performances. With firecracker’s easy-to-use and concisely structured interface/content, it is no wonder that improvement is certain.
