Default i noticed that people are putting up practice exam questions

Hey guys. So I'm still getting used to this forum. I've seen that a lot of people take advantage of this forum by putting up questions they come across. I am guessing these are either uworld,kaplanqbank, or the actual step questions?

My question is, why do people put up questions online and from which source do they usually do this. Because in Kaplanqbank n uworld, the answer and explanations are provided no? Or do the students on the forum usually help with good tips and tricks to memorize?

Just wanted to get an answer from the experienced users that post questions on a regular basis, so that way I can follow their footsteps by the time I am doing questions.

thank you

Default why they do it

hi,
i havent posted any questions but i have decided to reply you.
i think people do so for several reasons, maybe they came across a question and could'nt answer and worse still the explanation the question bank gave was not helpful and they are hoping that someone can break it down better
or they came across a question that they think will be beneficial to other forum users

btw i think the questions are from question banks or books, not from the actual exam.

welcome to the forum, no one else replied so i thought i should
