Step 3 Qbank

Why Should I Subscribe?

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 Step 3 exam. From our experience, we have found both the pros and cons in each one of them. The UWorld Step 3 Qbank, while retaining the best features, answers all of the shortcomings and also has some new features helpful for the exam. Please read along for a detailed overview.

Focused Exam Content and State of the art Explanations

Disclaimer Step 3 Qbank has been updated to reflect upcoming changes in exam content. Click here to review the changes we have implemented.

We teach you the concepts, which are important to not just pass the Step 3 but to attain a competitive residency placement, too. Our explanations are based on evidence based medicine and widely accepted procedures/treatment. With every explanation of a question, we have a specific "educational objective" outlining the main concept from that particular question, making the whole concept very easy to remember.

Furthermore, all of our materials are created by real life 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, which is extremely beneficial for strengthening one’s critical thinking, judgment, and test-taking skills. Unlike other competing services, our high yield content will undoubtedly 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 of the existing Qbank sources for USMLE an average student answers around 70%-80% of questions. By spending a good amount of time and money, you end up learning only 20%-30% content which is new. In contrast, with UWorld, you will learn approximately 40%-50%, because in this Qbank it is not easy to score very high in the first few attempts for the average student.

How Well are You Competing with Your Peers?

The explanation to every question also includes the percentage of people (registered users like you) who answered that particular question correctly. Since the final USMLE examinee’s performance, knowing how others are performing on a particular question helps you evaluate your performance and where you need to improve. Suppose you answer a question wrong and more than 70% of other test takers answered that question 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 high score on the USMLE. To apply this logic, you 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. The look and feel of the UWorld Qbank is almost similar to the real USMLE exam. Enough practice with this Qbank will make you feel at home when you are taking the real exam, so that you spend your valuable time thinking about the question instead of familiarizing with the software.
