Default Q Regarding USMLERX

How good, and accurate are USMLERX qbank? I subscribed to them a week ago, but unfortunately im not doing to great averaging ~57%.

I'm also doing USMLEWORLD and averaging 65-70% consistently. I've done usmleworld already once, and now doing 5-6 blocks of 48 questions per day plus 2-3 blocks of 48 questions of USMLERX.

My question is, is USMLERX a reliable source to study from? I feel that they questions are much more difficult and twisted around that USMLEWORLD.

your feedback is greatly appreciated!

USMLERx is only good as an adjunct to UW
It's not as reliable as UW and Kaplan
You are probably getting high UW scores because it's your second time doing it

I suggest to check your status by doing NBME

I finished kaplan earlier

my current averages are
UW 55%

I find usmlerx easier

my opinion is Rx is lower than UW and Kaplan, it is different from the exam too

some questions in real exam is harder than UW but most of them are easy

Woow, the exam is even harder than UW, oh my God

what do you mean most of the questions are easy, what was your score?
