Ellen Scholnicoff, MD

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.

Paul Catalana, MD

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.
