Choosing the right material for USMLE preparation is the key to achieving high scores. There are a number of options out there in the market to prepare for the USMLE Step 2 CK exam. From our experience, we have found the pros and cons of different variations in each. The UWorld Step 2 CK Qbank, while retaining the good features, answers all of the shortcomings and also has some new features helpful for the exam. Read along for a detailed overview.

  • Most widely used Qbank: Used by over 90% of all medical students
  • Questions are concept-based learning resources, not facts or assessments of knowledge
  • One-stop comprehensive resource
  • Questions and explanations are written by only the top medical experts with clinical experience

The More Questions You Practice, the Better the Result

If you practice a small pool of test questions, you may miss several topics. Our Step 2 CK Qbank has over 2000 high-quality questions, which cover almost all of the topics you need to know for the Step 2 CK exam. We add questions daily to ensure that relevant topics and new concepts are covered. We believe that if you work on our Qbank twice and read the explanations two or three times, your chances of earning a competitive score are high. After ample preparation, practicing as many high-quality questions as possible is the key to a high score on the Step 2 CK exam.

Focused Exam Content with Detailed, Up-to-date Explanations

We teach you the concepts, which are important to not just pass the Step 2 CK but to attain a competitive score. Our explanations are based on evidence-based medicine and widely accepted procedures/treatment. With every explanation, we have a specific "educational objective" outlining the main concept, making the entire concept very easy to remember.

All of our materials are created by practicing physicians, who specialize in various fields. Each question of our Qbank requires a unique and systematic two- to three-step thinking process. These distinct, sophisticated, and multi-faceted practice test questions are not offered by other educational sites. Unlike other competing services, our high-yield content will help subscribers master the content of the USMLE™, achieve exceptionally high test scores, and obtain competitive residency placement.

Learn More in Less Time

In many USMLE Qbank sources an average student can answer around 70%-80% of questions. This means that by spending a good amount of time and money, you end up learning only 20%-30% of new content. Unlike our competitors, our practice questions are much harder, making it much more difficult for an average student to score high in the first few attempts. The goal is not to discourage the students, but to motivate them to study harder and smarter. Average scores for UWorld are around 50%-60%, implying that, on average, a student learns 40%-50% of new content with our Qbank. The UWorld Qbank question items are designed to test the difficult part of the examination content while incorporating the less to medium difficulty concepts in each explanation.

You may think that the topics in UWorld are not relevant to the Step 2 CK, but this is not the case. USMLE expects you to know everything about common topics: for example, MI and related complications, pediatrics rashes, 3rd-trimester pregnancy complications, and the most important points about rare diseases. The UWorld Qbank is designed to test the difficult part of the examination content while incorporating the moderately difficult concepts in each explanation. For example, you do not need to know the different types of malaria or leishmaniasis, but you should know the preventive measures recommended for a person travelling to an endemic area; the UWorld Qbank gives you exactly that.

How Well are You Competing with Your Peers?

The explanation section of every question also includes the percentage of people (registered users like you) who have answered that particular question correctly. Knowing how others are performing on a particular question helps you evaluate your performance and the areas you need to improve. Suppose you answered a question wrong and more than 70% of other test takers answered correctly; that means you should know that question and you should never miss that concept in the exam, which may compromise your score. On the other hand, if you answer a question correctly, when less than 30% of people answered correctly, you will have a higher chance to earn a good score on the USMLE. To apply this logic, you will need to consistently answer tougher questions correctly, not just once or twice.

Feel at Home on the Big Day

Familiarizing yourself with the real exam software interface is very important. We have designed our Qbank to have the same look and feel as that of the real exam. Enough practice with this Qbank will make you feel at home while you are taking the real exam, so that you can spend your valuable time analyzing the question instead of becoming familiar with the software.
