Thus, to score high, drink from their never-ending fount of knowledge as early and as much as. Doing well on the USMLEs and Step 1 in particular involves having as much integrated, applied knowledge of the human body as possible.

Furthermore, you must know how to apply it to clinical scenarios. Introducing a QBank into your studies early in your second year or even late in your first year is useful. This might even be a waste of UWorld questions; see above.

Rather I got really good at applying pathophysiologic principles to questions I had never seen before. By constantly applying knowledge to novel clinical scenarios, I vastly improved my Step 1 score. I repeated incorrect questions twice once by accident, and once by curiosity.

Since I was using Anki, I knew the answer without reading the question. I could also remember the flaw in my reasoning the first time. Yes, I may have improved my knowledge slightly by repeating the question.

UWorld comes as close as any. However, if I were to do only one question bank, I would still choose UWorld. High-scorers recognize that memorization itself is insufficient. They must learn how to apply that knowledge to interpret the test questions correctly. The latter group sees the QBank merely as a means to an end. In my experience, this group does much better. I completely agree. Verdict: Definite fact.

Again, like much of the dogma, the answer will depend on what you believe the test to be. If so, then doing UWorld right before your exam may or may not be as important.

Rather I saw the exams as a series of carefully constructed questions that would test my ability to integrate and apply pathophysiologic principles. You are free to disagree.

I welcome your thoughts in the comments! That there are plenty of viable, rational alternatives! What do you think?

Are you still planning to repeat UWorld twice? Other thoughts? So why did I ignore this advice? And what did I do to eventually boost my score to ?

Here I deconstruct several of the most common beliefs surrounding the UWorld Question Bank, and see whether they withstand rational scrutiny. I considered sifting through any of the number of anonymous USMLE forums to find examples of this advice, but to be honest, I still get pangs of anxiety whenever I look through those forums, with all of their distress and breathless dogma. This is perhaps the most common advice I heard as a medical student, and one that I ignored.

What is the basis for this common medical student belief? This is one of the most common misconceptions I see among students preparing for Step 1: This sounds reasonable until you consider that it ignores the opportunity cost of spending weeks repeating UWorld over and over. In other words, every single time you repeat a UWorld question, you are losing the opportunity to study a question from a different question bank, one that might help you grow your knowledge in other ways that UWorld will not.

UWorld is fantastic, but is by no means infallible. There are definite strengths and weaknesses to UWorld, and to ignore other valuable resources is to set yourself up for potential disappointment. For example, it is excellent at making difficult two-step reasoning questions, although tends to be weaker on more recall-type questions that are also seen on USMLE Step 1.

Fiction, although to get the most out of any question bank, make sure to use Anki to make sure you never make the same mistake again. Why is this? One of the most difficult things about the USMLE Step 1 is that you will see questions that you have never seen before, or even thought about.

My real secret to scoring on Step 1 is this: Full disclosure: Doing well on the USMLEs and Step 1 in particular involves having as much integrated, applied knowledge of the human body as possible, and knowing how to apply it to clinical scenarios.

While I agree that introducing a QBank into your studies early in your second year or even late in your first year is useful, this definitely does NOT have to be UWorld I would even argue that this is a waste of the UWorld questions. By constantly practicing my ability to apply knowledge to novel clinical scenarios, I vastly improved my Step 1 score.

The two times I had repeated wrong questions once by accident, and once by curiosity , I found that since I was using Anki, I could remember not only what the right answer was, but also what the flaw in my reasoning had been when I first saw the question.

And while I may have improved my knowledge slightly by repeating the question, I found that I learned much less in 30 minutes of work than if I had simply done 30 minutes of the Kaplan QBank.They must learn how to apply that knowledge to interpret the test questions correctly.
