  • Too Easy - False Sense of Mastery

    By AnthonyM83
    Gives you false sense of material mastery. The answer are often the most popular disease. I'm an undergrad and am hitting 50% pass by picking the answer (out of 4 choices) that "sounds" like the related diseases based on the name or picking the disease I know is related. The last question I under answered (physiology/ nervous system section) that prompted me to write this review: Q: Which is part of somatic system? A: answer choices included skeletal, glands, smooth muscle (things like that) It'd be different if that section had hundreds of questions with an occasional high school level question like this, but it only has 40 for the whole subcategory. That's not good use of study time.... Social sciences example: Drunk patient comes into ER. Do you expect sedation, dilated pupils, bradycardia, or tachypnea? Obviously sedation. If you throw in a "sure answer" everyone's gonna pick it and the person studying never gets to solidify knowledge and realize what he doesn't know. I imagine an actual USMLE question would gives choices like tachypnea, tachycardia, bradycardia, or dilated pupils. THAT would make you actually have to think between the choices and test what you really know and alert you to deficiencies of you got it wrong on the app! Of course there are harder questions, too, from my undergrad perspective . But it makes me wonder if those would be considered easy also by an actual med student... It does cover a good breadth of material though and gives nice explanations. Very convenient to use while waiting in line, on the us, etc.
  • 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.
