Question What is the best USMLE Step 1 Question Bank?

Post and Poll Options were last updated on October 10th, 2013.

In this poll we vote for the Best USMLE Step 1 Qbank (Question Bank).

Choice of Qbanks Listed:
The Qbanks listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 1 exam. Qbanks
that are outdated and that do not have updated websites are removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process. One popular example of a removed qbank is the WikiTestPrep as that qbank is no longer available and before it was getting many votes.
If we have missed a USMLE Step 1 Qbank, please post about it in the mainstream Step 1 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

Why No Replies?
You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always comment about any qbank in our main Step 1 Forum.
You can also check our Qbanks Tag.

Who Should Vote?
Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the qbanks above. Artificial inflation of votes by qbank publishers will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted.

Qbanks listed are linked?
Qbank links are periodically updated to the latest website URLs. If website URL is broken please let us know so that we update it.

I'm a huge fan of USMLE-Rx. We got a discount code at my school, available until 9/4/14 : DOWNQMAX1 $129 for 12-month subscription, you can buy now and activate up to 6 months later if you prefer to wait. I find it to be a pretty comprehensive question bank. It's made by the writers of First Aid, making it one of the cheapest and best out there.

The best Qbanks that I used for my Step 1 and Step 2 CK prep, and I used a lot of them during my prep, were UWorld and the USMLE Success Academy. The level of difficulty and the structure of the questions came closest to the actual structure of the exams.

Default UWorld

Of course UWorld. USMLERx is helpful during your 1st read of FA as it gives you screenshot of the FA with the explanations.

UWorld is the leader, but I found that using a few Qbanks was extremely beneficial as they each have something positive to offer.

Hi all!
Who has tried Becker's Qbank
On SND forum several guys wrote their opinions, and two of them said it did have some mistakes, but that was long time ago
What about now?
