Ratings and Reviews
Great start, future will tell
Ultimately when choosing which resources to use for step 1 (there are so many) I ask myself, will this help me score better? I haven't taken step 1 yet so I can't say definitively how this will effect me, but having started this program and reviewing the schedule I can confidently say that I believe I will score very, very well if I stick to it. It is a rigorous schedule to be sure, but the company isn't promising a pass, they're shooting to help me score "ridiculously high." As one reviewer mentioned already they don't list what resources they use. While this may cost a few bucks on the front end to get them and follow the plan, most of the resources are must use step 1 study materials that most students plan on using regardless. Bottom line is that this is an inexpensive investment whose value, I believe, will far exceed the 5 dollars I have spent on it. If I follow this plan and score "ridiculously high" on step 1 then this will be a 5 star app. Since I can't say that I've done that yet I'm giving it a 4 star and will edit it to 5 if I crush my goal or move it down if I don't meet my goal score.
Tip for how to use
I have not taken step 1 so this is based on how I've used the app at the beginning of my studies for step 1. First, if you have more than one calendar on ical, double check which is your default calendar because the app auto-fills your default app. Here is my tip: create a separate calendar for the boards. This way, if you want to play around with the schedule (the app gives you choices about how many weeks you have in phase 1 and 2), it's very easy to delete the entire calendar rather than deleting each item. I'll update this review after I've followed the intense schedule for a couple weeks. But so far, it seems like a good way to study without figuring out what to study next.
In store support
In response to the previous review, our website bandwidth was recently exceeded due to high traffic. The website is back up and running and has been upgraded to accommodate high volumes. We apologize as we are a brand new app. The issue of no schedules populating the app occurs when it is downloaded in a poor or inconsistent (switching between different networks) Internet connection. The schedules are stored in an online database and must be retrieved through the Internet. Try redownloading the app in a good Internet connection. You will not be charged again. See the website and/or contact support for further help.
