  • Most Qbanks for Step 2 CK are created in a way that allow you to take your practice quizzes in subject mode or mixed mode. Our Advising Team recommends doing your Qbanks in timed, mixed mode and to complete the entire Qbank before taking your board exam.
  • Make a Qbank schedule that works for you and stick with it.

Student Testimonials

"This course was amazing. It was designed to enhance true memorization rather than cramming. I would know answers to questions before I read the options! I passed because of you guys!"
- Duke University, Class of 2013

"It was extremely positive. I couldn't have done well on Step 2 without you guys. You also gave me an excellent foundation of knowledge which will help me in residency. This course was not just a short-term to stunt to achieving a good score on an exam. It will no doubt yield long-term dividends for my medical knowledge"
- Drexel, Class of 2013

"I loved it! I am so thrilled with my score and I attribute all of it to the preparation I got from Doctors in Training. It kept me motivated on days that I felt like I just couldn't study any more. Everyone should do the DIT course in preparation for Steps 1 and 2!"
- Wake Forest School of Medicine, Class of 2012
