Exam Consult Medical Finals is an entirely online resource that provides an extensive and relevant bank of questions for medical students, especially in the build-up to their final exams. The website itself has a good layout and is very user friendly which makes it simple to navigate and create the test that you want. As all of the resource is stored online it means that you can access your tests and statistics where-ever you are and you can pause and resume tests at your leisure.
The questions are integrated and clinical which helps to reinforce knowledge learnt during a medical degree and gives a good basis for revision. Each of the answers also has an extensive and informative explanation so it not only tests your knowledge but is a useful learning tool. During the quiz you have the ability to mark/make notes on certain questions so that you can go back to them and there is an integrated calculator and lab values chart to help in some of the questions that require it. Test results and statistics are recorded and stored so that you can easily track your progress and identify areas of weakness.
As a second year medical student I have found this resource very useful for preparation of my upcoming exams (although some content is beyond my knowledge set) and am certain that it will be an invaluable resource during my final exams.
