First Aid First Aid Q&A for the iPhone

First aid Q&A iPhone app. Has anyone tried it? I am tempted to buy but it's kind of expensive and I can't find well written reviews. I want to solve questions after each chapter I finish but Kaplan Questions book isn't enough for me.

Here's the iTunes link

The First Aid Q&A for iPhone is just a sample of the original FA Q&A Book.



That book has been polled here
Is First Aid Q&A for the USMLE Step 1 reliable?

Of course you get digital advantages of making customized tests and tracking your performance.

One of the problems that most students did not like in this app, is the integration of Epocrates in it. You have to have an Epocrates log in username (which you can get for free but still it's not nice for many users).

"...is just a sample of the original of FA Q&A BOOK"

don't both of them offer about 1000 questions? what's the difference exactly?

"You have to have an Epocrates log in username"

oh! do I have to be online when I use it? or just register once to activate it?

Correct Answer Im using it!

I got the First Aid Q&A app off itunes and i dont need internet acccess to use it and personally, i like it I think its pretty much an electronic version of the Qbook but it throws in a little extra statistcs and mixed Vs subject wise. Im doing it subject wise every time i finish a chapter in my studies.

I suggest you to buy the iphone 5 instead because the iPhone 5 is coming. Maybe itíll land in September, maybe October, maybe some time after that, but sooner or later Apple is going to release a sequel to the wildly successful iPhone 4.
