Default Qbank confusion.

I am currently going through First Aid, for the first time. I wanted to select a question bank which will help me consolidate whatever I read. I wanted an offline qbank which has all the sections as divided in First Aid. Like system wise and subject wise as well. I was confused whether to get USMLE Rx, Qbook, Kaplan Qbank. Any help and insight will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you want an offline Qbank, then you have to go with First Aid Q&A for USMLE Step 1 Qbank. This is a great qbank to warm up with, its divided into the the same sections as FA (same authors), and it helps consolidate everything thats in FA. This is advice only if you have time (like if your exam is next year), if you're pressed, you better go straight to Uworld.

I'm sorry, I'm not really able to speak to that. My exam isn't until next summer. But from the research I've done over the past month, yes it is possible. But remember, when you're getting up to those types of numbers (260+), it's more than just knowing material, its also critical thinking, speed, focus, stamina, and keeping your cool.
