I am writing this just an hour after writing the actual step 1 exam, so I believe that makes me a better judge of the quality of this product. I have tried most of the available qbank products around, and Becker was the last one that I had tried before my exam. I was pleasantly surprised with the close resemblance of the question stems to the Becker qbank format. By that yardstick alone, Becker qbank is the one that a step 1 examinee should be solving in the days leading up to their actual exam. The questions are designed to not be a mere repetitive exercise of the other existing qbanks around. The questions are designed to fill in the lacunae left after one has almost exhausted their preparation — I found so many questions that ended up either correcting my previous understanding of a concept, or filling in the voids that had crept in my preparation, unknown to me. The prompt feedback replies to the queries from their faculty is noteworthy.

When I was looking for test prep options for the USMLE, I wanted something that could help "connect the dots" between the different subjects I learned in school. After a few webinars, I signed up for Becker's Integrated Cases with Dr. Raymon, intending to use it near the end of my test prep period to tie concepts together. Integrated Cases, fit my learning style perfectly by combining interactive questions and whiteboard-style lectures, and building "cases" that often showed the overlap of concepts between different disciplines. The deeper understanding of core concepts definitely helped my final test score. Elijah Lackey, USA, Ross University School of Medicine I used Becker's question bank and eCoach to study for Step 1 and was impressed by the quality of the instructors and the material they've put together. I ended up getting over 250 on Step 1 and I know Becker helped make that possible. Thanks!
