I don't think you have to worry about repeat questions. There are over 2700 questions on usmle consult so there will be plenty of practice questions.

The scorrelator is not that accurate in my opinion, but I still liked using USMLE consult early on because it has a lot of short, detail oriented questions that helped reinforce some of the recall facts we have to know. It doesn't have too many integrative questions but it was a good q bank to start off with.

There are also really good explanations for some of the questions because they give figures from textbooks.

So I would suggest using consult early on in your preparation to reinforce what you are reading. UWorld and Kaplan Qbank are more like the real USMLE questions from I have heard and you should use these closer to your test.

I believe you can take it as many times as you want but I only took it once so I don't know if you get the same questions the second time

Also, the reason why I say the scorrelator is not a great predictor is because they only used data from a couple hundred students so the data pool is small

Good score! I had a similar one but like I said, it's not very accurate in my opinion.

I wouldn't worry about repeat questions, I believe they will not be repeated in the qbank itself. There are 2700 questions so there are plenty for practice. I only got through 40% before I switched to UWorld and Kaplan

Yea, go through as much of consult as you can and then finish Kaplan. It's more important to finish Kaplan than consult so make sure to plan your time accordingly.
