The BoardVitals USMLE Step 1 question bank includes more than 3050 USMLE Step 1 board review practice questions specifically written to simulate the complexity and time of the real questions on the exam. The real exam lets you move backwards and forwards from question to question, as well as correct old answers. The BoardVitals system is modeled after this behavior as well. The USMLE Step 1 question bank follows the exam content outline for the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®) USMLE® Step 1 Exam.  New BoardVitals USMLE Step 1 Features:

Robust In-Depth Explanations

We’ve updated our USMLE® Step 1 question bank to include more robust and detailed explanations. These new questions have more in-depth explanations and enhanced features designed to help you learn the information better. Features include: 

  • Improved explanation formatting 
  • Longer explanations on complicated concepts
  • More high-yield topics
  • Improved distractor answers
  • Mnemonics

Vital Concepts

The BoardVitals USMLE® Step 1 question bank now includes our new “Vital Concepts” section. Vital Concepts details important information and/or a summary of key teaching points tested in the question. It is designed to help you optimize your understanding of the tested concept within each specific question. When you study this section with the updated explanations found in question banks, you will understand the key points for each concept and knowledge area on the exam.

Better USMLE® Visual Aids

The new USMLE® Step 1 question bank includes more questions with visual aids to give you a clearer look at difficult USMLE® concepts. These visual aids include diagrams, flow charts, tables, and more radiological and pathology images.
