Life is full of challenges but studying for the USMLE doesn't have to be one of them. In collaboration with McGraw-Hill, gWhiz has released USMLE Step 1 First Aid Q&A for iOS. Based on material from the highly respected book, First Aid Q&A for the USMLE Step 1, this essential mobile educational app offers board-style questions and answers as well as easy-to-navigate, high-yield explanations for correct and incorrect answers.
“At gWhiz, we’re committed to improving the educational experience through engaging mobile applications,” said gWhiz founder, Kevin Reville. “With this app release, users get outstanding USMLE study materials, software intelligently designed for effective learning, and a set of useful analytics to help them determine where additional work is needed. And the best part is, they get the convenience of taking it with them on their mobile device.”
“The app provides students with new ways to access and interact with our review material and is designed to deliver the best on-the-go exam preparation possible,” says Scott Grilo, Vice President and Medical Publisher of McGraw-Hill Professional.
This app includes a free starter pack of 48 questions organized into 24 categories consisting of 17 chapters and 7 sample test blocks. Users may test their overall knowledge by answering randomly generated questions from all 24 categories or target areas of weakness by focusing on a specific subject. For a more intensive review, the complete set of 986 board-style questions and answers is available through in-app purchase.
With the ability to flag questions and review detailed analytics, users can closely track their progress. By offering a rigorous review of key concepts and facts, this comprehensive app gives users the knowledge they need to master the USMLE and similar medical exams.
