Default Yes!

I am using it now and I can simply say that I WISH I STARTED IT EARLIER!
It helps you focus on your weak points in an effective, attractive and intelligent way.

and last week they started their 2200 QBANK ... that is incomparable!!

I wish all of you to try it>>>it has a 1 MONTH FREE SUBSCRIPTION ... no excuses now for anyone...try it and if you were uncomfortable, just leave it.

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF US !

it actually looks pretty good. the website is a little annoying to navigate at first (due to the popups), but its otherwise well organized. the content isnt very thorough... rather its more like a usmle secrets type of book.

the qbank looks promising at first, it even has an interface similar to fred v2. however, testing out the step 2ck questions i already found a significant error by the 5th question. you are presented with a very short vignette of an elderly man with increasing confusion and getting lost while driving, and then they abruptly ask for the therapy to be initiated at that moment. im pretty sure you would at least have to assess for depression, b12 deficiency, and order a tsh level before you assume that its dementia.
