35+ Hours of Videos

In developing USMLE ACE, our goal was to create a new Qbank that supersedes the existing Qbanks while covering a broad spectrum of topics with enhanced learning techniques. We believe that “repetition is the mother of all learning” and thus, important topics will be repeated multiple times so that by the time you are through with our Qbank, you will know all the high-yield facts by heart.

The subscribers have access to  1,800 questions, explanations, & many short follow up questions/answers. Above all, Ace offers 35+ hours videos, and many memory aids and graphical images for better understanding and memorization of the information you need to score well on the USMLE Step 1.

Most noteworthy, USMLE Step 1 is a broadly-based, integrated examination, so the exam questions commonly require you to perform one or more of the following tasks:
  • Interpret graphic and tabular material
  • Identify gross and microscopic pathologic and normal specimens
  • Apply basic science knowledge to clinical problems

Topics will be mostly repeated using follow-up questions♠, which are short questions and answers that follow the explanation section of each question. In addition, we underline/bold/color high-yield facts while using mnemonics and memory aids to ease the memorization of more difficult topics.

Other QBanks

Ace USMLE Step 1 Videos and QBank Prep Course is designed to maximize your STEP 1 score, and prepares you for your third and fourth years of medical school. Indeed, while primarily focusing on the Step 1 exam, our Qbank provides pertinent details that you will encounter when writing the Step 2, Step 3, and shelf exams.

Most of the questions in other QBanks on the market require only one level of thinking. In contrast, the actual USMLE exam questions rely on multi-level thinking. Our questions use the same approach as the actual exam to make our questions challenging while covering multiple topics in the same question. With this approach, the actual exam will not feel nearly as challenging and you will feel as though you are merely going through another block of USMLE ACE questions.

We have designed our exam interface to, as closely as possible, recreate the look and feel of the actual exam to best prepare you for taking the actual exam. You have enough on your mind that day without having to worry about deciphering the format of the exam before you even begin to answer the questions
Here at USMLE Ace, we believe that through presenting unique sets of videos, we can enlighten the minds of every medical student in the country. These videos cover various multiple choice questions which have been embedded in the Q-bank. Such videos has a total of 35 hours that will enhance your auditory and visual learning in a more efficient and faster approach of reviewing questions.
