“In my opinion, MedSmarter is the way to go. Kaplan and falcon do help with content knowledge and have a lot of books and resources but that’s it. You don’t get the focused, INDIVIDUALIZED, review that is necessary for you to succeed.
MedSmarter is a great prep program if you’re interested in a focused and more individualized approach to studying for your USMLE Step exams. I am a detail-oriented individual with a lot of knowledge, however, I did not know how to focus that knowledge on exams. I often choose detailed answers when they are looking for commonly tested topics. MedSmarter reviews all the details necessary to be successful on the exam, but They make sure to tell you what you need to know, and for me, they were extremely helpful with test taking skills!!! I improved my score from the original assessment to actual test over 25 points. I also finished blocks with 10-15 minutes left because I was confident in the answers. I picked and moved on. Even on the exam! It was crazy how well I improved and how easy the questions were after opening my eyes to how to take the test. I am forever indebted to them for helping me be successful on my step 2ck as I have graduated Med school and well on my way to securing a residency position!!
At the end of the day if you want content knowledge any program will work, but if you want someone to understand and point out your strengths and weaknesses and work with you to improve those strengths and eliminate weakness MedSmarter is the way to go!!”
