UWorld: Is Your Strategy Wrong? (I Scored 270 By Ignoring The Dogma)

UWorld Strategy Wrong

Virtually everyone who’s taken Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 3 has used UWorld (sometimes called “UW”). Formerly known as “USMLE World”, it is held in near-religious reverence. Its questions match the USMLE Step exams’ two-step reasoning process. Its explanations bring medical students to tears of joy. It’s even rumored to have cured several forms of cancer.

I jest. But when I was a Stanford preclinical student stressing over USMLE Step 1, I bought everything I was told. “Everyone” knew that all you had to do to destroy Step 1 was to read First Aid five times, and do UWorld at least twice. (And review your wrong answers another couple times for good measure). Then and only then were you ready to brave the rite-of-passage exam.

So why did I ignore this advice?  And what did I do to eventually boost my score to 270?

Table of Contents

Does the Dogma Make Any Sense?

Here I deconstruct several of the most common beliefs surrounding the UWorld Question Bank. Do they withstand rational scrutiny?

The “common knowledge” surrounding UWorld is an opinion. This is also my opinion from preparing for Step 1/Step 2 CK. It also comes from well as having tutored students for the USMLE Step and Shelf exams.

NOTE: I considered sifting through any of the number of anonymous USMLE forums to find examples of this advice. However, med student forums still give me pangs of anxiety, with all of their distress and breathless dogma. If you can brave forums without getting palpitations, share it in the comments and I will update this article. (But I might not visit it myself =).

Claim #1: Repeat UWorld At Least Twice. (Even At the Expense of Another QBank).

This is perhaps the most common advice I heard as a medical student. I ignored it.

Why does everyone tell you to repeat UWorld? It’s simple: UWorld is a fantastic resource (it really is). Therefore, doing it more than once will somehow boost your score even further.

If a little of something is good, then more must be better, right?

This is one of the most common misconceptions I see among students preparing for Step 1. If something has helped in the past, then repeating it ad infinitum will increase your score indefinitely.

Repeating UWorld Isn't Better

A little bit of water is good for you. But excessive water isn’t necessarily better.

A Little is Good. More Isn’t Necessarily Better

This sounds reasonable until you consider that it ignores the opportunity cost of spending weeks repeating UWorld over and over.  In other words, every repeated UWorld question prevents you from studying a question from a different question bank. Other questions can help you grow your knowledge in other ways that UWorld will not.

UWorld is fantastic, but is by no means infallible.  There are definite strengths and weaknesses to UWorld. To ignore other valuable resources is to set yourself up for potential disappointment. For example, it is excellent at making difficult two-step reasoning questions. However, it tends to be weaker on more recall-type questions that can also be on the USMLEs.

Verdict: Fiction. Although to get the most out of any question bank, make sure to use Anki to make sure you never make the same mistake again.

Do UWorld Only Once

UWorld questions are as close to the real thing as possible. Because they’re so close to the real thing, I did NOT do UWorld twice.

A huge challenge for USMLE Step 1 is questions that you have never seen before. Some you may have never even thought about.

This is my real secret to scoring 270 on Step 1. Learn how to reason through questions that you’ve never seen before. Getting never-seen-before questions right differentiates people who are scoring <240 vs. 250-270.

How to Prepare for Questions You’ve Never Seen Before

How can you get questions right you’ve never seen before? By practicing questions that you haven’t seen before.

This might seem obvious. So why do so few people do it? UWorld is similar to USMLEs. However, that does NOT mean that your USMLE will be exactly like every UWorld question.

How many students claim their test was nothing like First Aid/UWorld? Lots. But if UWorld is so much like the USMLE, why are so many students blind-sided? Because they go in thinking the content of the test will be identical to UWorld.

Instead, expect the unexpected. Use UWorld (or other QBanks) to simulate never-before-seen questions.

Full disclosure: I used Kaplan’s Question Bank first. My NBMEs were in the 250s before I even started UWorld. (I only did 2 Qbanks total).  I didn’t repeat either, and didn’t even go through my incorrect questions.

Claim #2: Begin UWorld at Least a Year Before Your Exam

This is a variant of the UFAP refrain: “all you need is UWorld and First Aid.” In this school of thought, the only things Step 1 will test you on are found in these two resources. Thus, to score high, drink from their never-ending fount of knowledge as early and as much as.

(To read Beyond UFAP: Why a List of Resources Isn’t a Good Step 1 Strategy, click here).

Doing well on the USMLEs (and Step 1 in particular) involves having as much integrated, applied knowledge of the human body as possible. Furthermore, you must know how to apply it to clinical scenarios.

Introducing a QBank into your studies early in your second year or even late in your first year is useful. However, this definitely does NOT have to be UWorld. (This might even be a waste of UWorld questions; see above).

A 250+ Comes From Applying Pathophysiologic Principles to Questions You’ve Never Seen Before

Remember: I didn’t score 270 on Step 1 by having more knowledge than 99.9% of other medical students. Rather I got really good at applying pathophysiologic principles to questions I had never seen before. By constantly applying knowledge to novel clinical scenarios, I vastly improved my Step 1 score.

(To read The Secret to Scoring 250/260+ You Can Learn Right Now: Question Interpretation, click here).

I repeated incorrect questions twice (once by accident, and once by curiosity). Since I was using Anki, I knew the answer without reading the question. I could also remember the flaw in my reasoning the first time.

Yes, I may have improved my knowledge slightly by repeating the question. However, I learned much less in 30 minutes repeating UWorld than if I’d done 30 minutes Kaplan QBank.

Verdict: Fiction. However, if you plan on only completing a single QBank once, then I would recommend using UWorld

Claim #3: UWorld is the Most Similar to the Real Exam

Can any QBank mimic the USMLE’s aim of forcing you to apply knowledge to novel situations? UWorld comes as close as any.

Having been a medical school tutor for years, the difference in quality between Kaplan and UWorld isn’t all that vast. However, if I were to do only one question bank, I would still choose UWorld.

Verdict: Fact (see caveats above re: best uses)

Claim #4: “My Test Was NOTHING Like UWorld”

Why do so many students who take the test who come out saying that it was nothing like what they’d prepared for? They say it wasn’t at all like their UWorld questions. But how do others (including myself) claim it was very similar to what they’d expected?

I’ve worked with multiple students who have failed Step 1 prior to coming to me. I believe that the difference in these two groups’ experiences stems from what they believed the test to be.

UWorld Repeaters Often Believe USMLEs = Tests of Knowledge, Not Application

The students who’ve failed their USMLE often feel that the exam is a test of facts. They think repeating UWorld and First Aid are the best way to accumulate those facts.

The high-scorers know it’s impossible to cover everything they could be tested on. Instead, the know that the point of the exam isn’t knowledge. Instead, scoring high on the USMLEs requires the application of principles. High-scorers recognize that memorization itself is insufficient. They must learn how to apply that knowledge to interpret the test questions correctly.

(To read How Are USMLE Questions Written? 9 Open Secrets for Impressive Boards Scores, click here).

The latter group sees the QBank merely as a means to an end. To them, it’s a practice ground to hone their reasoning skills for the day of the test. In my experience, this group does much better.

Verdict: Fiction, at least in my experience and the experience of most of my friends/students

UWorld Strategy Wrong

Repeating UWorld questions makes it harder to answer items you’ve never seen before.

Claim #5: Use UWorld in Your USMLE Preparations

This is a no-brainer. I completely agree.

Verdict: Definite fact.

Claim #6: Do UWorld Just Before Taking Step 1/Step 2 CK/Step 3

Should you save UWorld for last? Again, like much of the dogma, the answer will depend on what you believe the test to be.

To you, are the USMLEs a test of knowledge? If so, then doing UWorld right before your exam may or may not be as important.

What if you think the USMLEs test your ability to apply knowledge to questions you’ve never seen before? You will likely want to use UWorld as the final question bank before you take your test. (See above; UWorld is the best QBank I’ve found that mimics the real test conditions).

If it isn’t already abundantly clear, I fall in the latter camp. QBanks are a learning tool, not a repository of facts. Use them to learn critical information as well as how to apply it to novel situations.

Verdict: Fact (depending on what you believe).

Concluding Thoughts

While I am sure there is going to be disagreement, my goal with this blog post was to challenge the UWorld dogma.  It is no doubt an extremely useful question bank. However, it is by no means the holy grail of USMLE Step 1 preparation as it is so often held to be.

Ultimately, your preparations and how you use these resources will depend on your fundamental beliefs about the USMLEs. As a medical student and USMLE tutor, I worked under the assumption that Step 1 wouldn’t be a receptacle for me to regurgitate UWorld/First Aid knowledge. Rather I saw the exams as a series of carefully constructed questions that would test my ability to integrate and apply pathophysiologic principles.

You are free to disagree. (I welcome your thoughts in the comments)!  Remember that there isn’t only one way to approach using UWorld. That there are plenty of viable, rational alternatives!

At Med School Tutors, we rely heavily on UWorld in our work with students. Over the last ten years, UWorld has been widely recognized as the gold standard Qbank for all USMLE exams. This is due primarily to the quality of its questions and rigor of its explanations. 


UWorld content is updated throughout the year, which keeps the Qbank incredibly current in the changing world of medicine and medical testing. Students who use UWorld achieve consistently topflight results, but where do they go wrong? What are potential pitfalls that second year med students should make sure to avoid in their own prep?  


We've identified the five biggest mistakes that med students make with UWorld for Step 1 prep (and also posted five more big UWorld mistakes here).


The top mistakes to avoid with UWorld Step 1 prep:

1. Not starting UWorld early enough in your Step 1 study period

Many students come to us concerned about starting UWorld questions too early in their Step 1 study period. They say they're not ready to tackle a Qbank as difficult as UWorld. They would prefer to start with an easier Qbank or focus more on reading. This is a mistake!  


Step 1 is a question-based exam. Therefore, the best approach to studying for Step 1 is to incorporate UWorld questions early and often. Even if you have not finished all of the material five months before your exam, there will certainly be some content you've covered.


For example, if you've already had your immunology course, do some immunology UWorld questions! If you've learned biochemistry, create a few short biochemistry question bank sets from UWorld. During your heme block in second year, do some heme questions. 


Attempting difficult questions is a great way to focus your studying and highlight areas of deficiency. Additionally, you might want to do UWorld questions on the topics you're learning in coursework.  


Remember that you can customize your question sets based on discipline. You can focus on heme pathology or heme pharmacology, if that is what your course is covering. No need to deal with biostats or biochem during a heme pathophys block. The earlier you expose yourself to difficult case vignettes, the more efficient your question-based studying will be later on. 

So, when should I start UWorld?

If you are in your second year of med school, buy UWorld now and start building your basic sciences foundation by working through questions.


2. Not spending enough time reading explanations in UWorld 

Glossing over UWorld question explanations is one of the biggest and most damaging mistakes med students make when utilizing UWorld Qbanks.  Students who score 240 or higher on Step 1 know that the true value of UWorld lies in its high-quality explanations.

UWorld questions are prompts. They are vehicles for practicing the pattern recognition, clinical reasoning, and test-taking skills that we need to score high on the USMLE.  


However, doing UWorld question banks alone and skimming the explanations is not enough to achieve mastery of the material.


Top scorers understand that UWorld is best used as a learning tool, and most of the learning happens when reviewing explanations—especially on questions you got wrong.


If there are five answer choices and only one correct answer, 80% of the content will focus on the incorrect answers. We must read all of the explanations—every word—to get the most out of the question.


Does this take time? Absolutely! Students come to us and say, "I'm spending too much time on UWorld sets. It's taking me forever to review my blocks."  We say, "No, you're not. That's how we learn."


Med School Tutors has found that students should spend 2-3x as long reviewing explanations as completing sets. This review includes looking up content in high-yield resources and making flashcards. Don't skimp on question review!  


3. Not linking UWorld Qbank explanation review to First Aid

First Aid is the key book to use for Step 1 prep. We all know this.


What many students do not know, however, is how to effectively integrate First Aid study with UWorld question bank review for Step 1 prep.  


We think about the UWorld Qbank as a tool for illuminating or animating the content in First Aid. Anyone who has opened up First Aid to a random chapter and tried to read it through as a narrative knows how difficult this is to do.  


What we've found from our own study experiences and through our extensive work with students is that linking UWorld to First Aid is an incredibly effective way to make the book content stick. This means that optimal question bank review entails having a copy of First Aid ready to annotate—or even just to locate the information. Get ready to flip those pages! It's one of the best ways to learn First Aid.


4. Prioritizing the percentage of correct answers over learning content

Med students are data-driven individuals. We all love numbers, percentages, trends, etc. However, we fall into a trap when we allow the numerical information provided by UWorld to overwhelm the learning component. Students become overly enamored with percent correct and cumulative results, when what really matters is how much we are learning from the explanations. We cannot stress this point enough: UWorld is primarily a learning tool, not an assessment tool.


Additionally, students who focus too much on numbers are more likely to suffer study inertia. Why? Because these students are afraid to move on to the next question block until they've mastered the material. This leads to more reading, more passive watching of videos, more review of notes. Students move slowly through the Qbank to improve their chances of achieving high percentages on the next set. Let go of your concerns about numbers! Nobody will see your percentages. Keep the focus on where it should be: learning the exam content and improving test-taking skills.


5. Working through the UWorld Qbank once only

This is a big mistake that students make for many of the reasons described in this post: focusing too heavily on percentages, not wanting to waste the questions, wanting to start with an easier Qbank as a "warm up."  


What students often do not realize until too late is that there is an overwhelming amount of content in this Qbank, again, found primarily in the explanations. It takes multiple passes through the Qbank to embed the key points in our minds and derive the full benefit of this wonderful learning tool. Most students do not have photographic memories (we don't either), which means that repetition is the key to learning the material.


Mastery learning entails identifying the best resources and approaches, and working them repeatedly. If you are a 2nd year student and have not already done so, go ahead and acquire UWorld Qbank. (Many schools provide students with access to UWorld subscriptions, so be sure to find out if that's the case before you purchase it on your own.) Start working on questions now as you create your basic science foundation. The earlier you start, the more likely you are to score high and join the 240+ club. We'll save a spot for you.

USMLE Step 1 Questions

Are you getting ready to take your USMLE® Step 1 exam? We get asked all the time about how the BoardVitals Step 1 Question Bank compares to UWorld and Kaplan’s, so we talked to a few MDs to get the inside scoop.

The Step 1 exam is a one-day, 8-hour exam, divided into seven 60-minute blocks. The number of questions per block varies, but never exceeds 40, which would suggest that timing is not the biggest problem, but is something everyone should take into account. The total exam has at most 280 questions and allows test-takers to jump around to answer questions on their own accord.

There are so many different products, each with their own pros and cons, available to students, how do you know what is the best for you? We’ve got a detailed comparison of major USMLE Step 1 question banks to consider just for you. Check out what Kaplan, UWorld,and BoardVitals has to offer.

Interested in the comparison for USMLE Step 2CK or USMLE Step 3? Check out our other blog posts.


BoardVitals offers questions banks for all sorts of medical exams. These questions banks are written and reviewed by doctors and experts who have recently taken the exams. This process allows for users to sort questions based on the highest rating, providing the best questions (according to other doctors) first.

All of the question banks are subscription-based, and the USMLE Step 1 is priced as such: $149 for a month, $199 for 3 months, and $329 for 6 months. The USMLE Step 1 question bank consists of approximately 3,300 questions with detailed explanations for a comprehensive understanding of each topic.

Free Trial

BoardVitals offer a free trial consisting of 25 sample questions. This is a great way to test the features of the Qbank and see how questions, explanations, and references are presented.

Progress Tracker

Each Qbank provides individual exam scores, the median score of all users, and the user’s percentile rank for the questions in a test.

Feedback & Customer Service

On each question, feedback is encouraged. BoardVitals has several physicians on staff and this feedback loop enables users to ask questions and get additional information from those physicians. This is a great feature for students who need clarification other than what was provided in the explanation and rationale. Customer service is available 24/7 via email [[email protected]] and via phone [877.221.1529] during normal business hours.

“BoardVitals ensures a thorough review of all high-yield materials with features that let professors to incorporate questions into their lectures, so that students are better prepared with USMLE-style questions throughout their basic science studies,” Bisi Akindele, MD, said.


Oftentimes, board review study guides try to mimic the same experience found on the actual exam. While the software itself is not exactly like the real exam, the format of the questions are, and BoardVitals presents its examination blocks in either a “timed” or “review” mode. This allows users to practice time management that will be required in the exam. Review mode allows you to see the explanation and correct answer for each question immediately after answering it. Additionally, this Qbank includes audio questions which are a component of the exam. Explanations are provided for correct and incorrect answers in order to cover all topics relevant to the USMLE exams.

Additional Features

  • Users can create exams made up of an unlimited number of questions if they wish, to do an uninterrupted set of questions. This feature is very helpful if a student wishes to review all the questions in a topic at the same time. “This is a great way to build one’s stamina, especially since the actual exam is 8 hours long,” Akindele said.
  • The more you use the Qbank, the more it learns about your strengths and weaknesses. It will even suggest categories individualized to each student.
  • Users can share a question with another student or professor for discussion. In addition to this, a “send exam” feature is available for faculty at institutions that use BoardVitals, and this allows them to send exams to the students for reviews or assessments.
  • A user can go over all the questions again by deleting the completed exams, that way, they’ll be able to reuse all the questions in the bank easily.
  • BoardVitals provides users with study tips and other great pieces of information on their blog.
  • For each new customer, BoardVitals donates one vaccine to children in need as part of their philanthropic initiative: #GiveVax.
  • Mobile app available.
  • The “Vital Concepts” section includes a summary of key teaching points tested in each question for further review of subjects tested on the exam.


Kaplan offers questions banks for several medical exams, including USMLE Step 1. Their Step 1 bank has more than 3,300 questions at $199 for 3 months, $249 for 6 months, or $349 for 18 months. Compared to other offers, Kaplan offers these affordable long-term options for those who plan to begin studying many months in advance. The drawback? If you planned to study with the Qbank for a little over a month, you’d still have to pay the rate for the full year.

Free Trial

Kaplan offers a set of 100 sample questions in their 7-day free trial.

“This is a good number of questions to cover all the topics and can give a good picture of how much you know in each topic,” said Bisi Akindele, MD. “There is a free diagnostic test as well, which I did when preparing for my step 1 exam. I used it to gauge my weak subjects before fully starting my preparation.”

Progress Tracker

This Qbank features information displaying individual results. These include test analyses and cumulative performance. 

Feedback/Customer Service

Kaplan has a help link in each question for those who need additional clarification. They have a doctor available via email to flush out medical content found in the questions. Customer service is available via email or phone.


Kaplan presents its questions in a format to simulate the exam. It has both “timed” and “tutor” modes. Each question comes with detailed explanations and references. Kaplan question stems are known to be longer than the usual question stems. But at the end of the day, it’s learning the material that counts.

Additional Features:

  • Kaplan has various course options and combinations featuring textbooks and live/online courses.
  • They feature high-yield videos that cover topics found on the USMLE exams.
  • There are free step 1 live and online information sessions.
  • Mobile app available.


UWorld specializes in providing effective question banks covering all topics found on USMLE Exams.  Written by practicing physicians who excelled in the USMLE exams. UWorld’s USMLE Step 1 Question Bank has over 3,500 questions and costs $269 for 30 days, $369 for 90 days and up to $719 for 2 years, which includes two self-assessment exams. UWorld also provides QBanks with practice exams for an additional fee.

Free Trial

UWorld provides a 10-question free sample test for users to test out the platform and product.

Progress Tracker

UWorld tracks users’ progress and compares individual test scores, the average of other users, and the user’s cumulative performance. Each individual question also shows the percentage of people that chose each answer option. 

Feedback and Customer Service

UWorld has a link to FAQs, forums for each exam, and 24/7 customer service via email.


UWorld is the most similar (of these three) to the actual exam. The calculator, laboratory values and even the coloring of the program mirror the test.

The Qbank also has “timed,” “tutor” and “timed tutor” modes.

“USMLE World is the most used and highest yield question bank. Students should try to complete it at least once (preferably twice) before their exam,” said Christopher Carrubba, MD, co-director of tutor development and medical education for Med School Tutors. “However, more questions are better! Utilizing BoardVitals and Kaplan question banks can only help your score.”

Additional Features

  • UWorld has a separate Biostatistics question bank. This is a great tool that can be used for step 1, 2 or 3. It includes notes on all topics with questions and extended explanations. It covers the material expected on the examination.
  • UWorld provides two 4-block assessments (can be purchased in combination with a question bank or alone). These are great tools to use after completing the question bank, in order to gauge how ready you are for the real test. Since the real exam is 7 blocks of questions, you can combine the 2 assessments for 1 practice session.
  • Mobile app available.

“In my opinion, the assessments may overestimate your preparedness and isn’t the best prediction for the actual test,” Akindele said.

Ratings and Reviews

External keyboard issues

Great app. Was excited with the new notebook feature. However I am not able to type notes into the notebook using an external keyboard on my iPad. I am only able to type notes when using the screen keyboard. Would really appreciate being able to type into the notebook using an external keyboard. Please fix this. Thank you!

We are sorry you are facing the issue. We will work on it and try to release an update at the earliest possible.

Great but needs small improvements here and there

I think this app is a great representation of the website version. It’s useful to have on phone when on rotations like OB, for example, where the next delivery will be 4 hours later. I use the iPad version a lot and I think it looks and works really well. However, I think it needs more functions when using a magic keyboard with the iPad though. It would be nice if when swiping with two fingers on the trackpad would go to next question. Also when highlighting things, it currently requires a two finger tap with trackpad. It’d be nice if like on the desktop version it highlighted automatically. These are small things but would really be nice to have.

Display of lab values is terrible and a deal breaker

The method by which this app displays lab values is a deal breaker for me. It covers the question text and does’t allow simultaneous highlighting of the text which mandates a total change in how I handle timed questions. Worse, any movement of the lab values window or scrolling within that window is lost once the window is closed (to highlight text etc) and reopened. There is enough room on an iPad screen to put the lab values side by side like on a pc. Alternatively, show the lab value window while allowing interaction with the question text and answer choices and save the pane and the place last scrolled to when the window is reopened within the same question. These issues don’t allow me to use this app at all in timed mode. Only untimed or review. Please fix!

This is still an issue months later

We appreciate your feedback. We are always looking for suggestions to improve our app. We would certainly consider working on it in our feature release. Please contact our support team at [email protected] for further questions
