The cross-linking [interlinked content] is excellent between the sections of the product. If you encounter a challenging Q&A, it’s easy to reference the key information found in the core content and, from there, get to other related topics. The information is all high-yield and easily digestible. And all the content and questions have been authored and edited by physicians actually practicing in the relevant fields- you can be sure the information is up to date and relevant both to test-taking AND practical clinical knowledge.

I just started my study schedule this week and this is helping me stay organized on Step 1 material. I wish I had found this resource earlier instead of spending so much time organizing bits and pieces of material from other resources.

The Medical Student Core and Qbanks implement what students want: clear, thorough, accurate, yet informal discussions of the key topics they need to know. These products focus on high-yield information but don't just provide bare facts. What makes them unique is that they aim to help students better understand this information, and to enjoy learning more while studying, rather than being intimidated by their exams.

I don't think there's any better way to assess how well you've learned material than through questions! The advantage of using questions alongside the material [Student Core] is that the questions will allow you to determine your areas of weakness and your areas of strength.
