Kickstart your USMLE® Step 1 exam
Looking for a brand new and more efficient way to prepare for USMLE® Step 1? The adaptive learning Qbank personalizes your preparation for the Step 1 exam. With this Qbank, you can identify your knowledge gaps and address them all at once. The diagnostic pretest, adaptive learning Qbank, and full-length practice exam ensure that you achieve a higher USMLE Step 1 score in less time.
Start your learning experience with the pretest
The adaptive learning Qbank begins with a 40 question pretest. Once completed, your answers will feed the algorithm with information about your knowledge and knowledge gaps which are decisive for your further learning.
Individualize your learning with the practice sets
At the heart of the adaptive platform are the practice sets. Adaptive practice sets are groups of multiple-choice questions and corresponding background information in all relevant subjects for the Step 1 practice exam.
Our Qbank contains over 4,000 USMLE-style multiple choice questions. You can customize your study plan by filtering through our Qbank subjects and creating your own adaptive practice sets.
Empower the Adaptive Algorithm
To power our adaptive algorithm, we ask you to rate your confidence after each question or slide in a practice set.
Be honest! This information determines which content you have mastered and which content we should come back to. Don’t worry about not knowing or being unsure about something—this is not a test (yet)!
Monitor your learning progress
After you complete an adaptive practice set, your progress will be updated in ‘reports’.
Proficiency reports show your how many questions you answered correctly, and metacognition reports show your progress towards conscious competence.
Conscious competence, also known as “knowing what you know”, is the ultimate goal. Once you achieve conscious competence, you have fully mastered your targeted subject.
Archive your goal
Once you’ve achieved your ideal proficiency and metacognition score, you can test your knowledge with our full-length practice exam. Our practice exam mimics the content and experience of test day. You can mark questions to return to later and expand or minimize lab values. Each practice exam is individually scored, and you can pause the exam at any time to return to it later.
