i did about 40% of usmleconsult after having won it thrice last year.
I don't like it much and the type of questions are substandard when compared to uworld which is the gold standard.
It will definitely serve as an adjunct to you preparation, provided you have 1.5 months to spare with, but take my word, do not do this one after uworld. Either do it with kaplan lecture notes or before uworld but never after uworld.
the explanations for the answers is not great either and there are several "high yield hits" consisting of outside references which are very lengthy and according to me, out of the picture of the question.

so the baseline is, if you want to practice more and more and more, go for it. i don't have any time to spare for usmleconsult, so i stopped it long ago.

Hi!

I have a question to those of you who won subscription to usmleconsult more than once. My current subscription is about to expire very soon, I won another PIN code and I would like to extend my subscription but I'm afraid that if I activate the 2nd code I will reset my qbank questions that I have done so far. Does anyone know if there's any way to extend the subscription and not to restart the whole qbank all over again?
I would really really appreciate your help!!!

ps. I have contacted elseviere phoneline but their employees are not sure how to answer my question...

say for example if your 1st 30 days subscription is going to end on 30/8/12 at 18:00hrs, if you want to extend it, enter the new code the same day or even an hour before that and it gets extended by a month.

but are you sure it will not restart my qbank? I'm just double-checking bc the guys on phoneline are not sure about it. One even told me the if I activate new PIN I will not be able to see my previous tests so basically I will be starting the bank all over again. The other 2 guys I spoke to said something different. So I figured out that someone who actually tried extending by activating another code will know better than they do...
