Idea! Please post the reference of your questions

Its a humble request to all the forum members to also post the resource of the question at the end of the explanation.
This will help us in correlating ourself to the resource.

Thanks

Please read it carefully i said to write the source in the explanation.
yA if it was a qns from NBME its better to write in the title.

Although referencing your explanation is a nice idea but I think referencing the source of the question is far more critical and important

You completely misunderstood. There is no point of referencing the explanation.
I am trying to say whenever you explain the answer to the qns which you have posted please also tell the source while explaining. You may write it in the title part of your explanation post.

I hope you got it.

I did not misunderstood, I understood very well what you are talking about.
But am I suggesting (in addition), that you HAVE TO mention the source of the question when you post the question.
The main reason, is that if you don't say the reference of the question then we'll be afraid that the question is from NBME and we don't want to spoil the NBME.

I hope you get it

Yes you are absolutely true.
I was thinking it would have been better if we had posted it at the end with explanation.
If the title of qns does not carry NBME as title its understood that its from some other source as people are diligent enough not to spoil the NBMEs
Any ways the purpose of this post was to help people know the source of the qns.
Can be followed any way they like.
but please do post the source
