More than test prep...

While this guide is to help you find resources that will support your preparation for USMLE, Shelf, and other certification exams, these tools can offer more.

As you work through modules and various domains during your pre-clinical years, these resources can be used to help you review your knowledge while also helping you get a feel for how scenarios are presented in the various tests.
