Step 1 Flashcards for a Strong Preclinical Foundation

Building a strong preclinical foundation is essential for success throughout your USMLE sequence and future clinical career. Our premade Step 1 flashcards give you greater flexibility to learn this background knowledge and develop your clinical judgment.

Clinically Relevant
Step 2 CK

Balancing clinical rotations, shelf exams, and USMLE prep can be tricky, especially with the added pressure placed on Step 2 scores following Step 1's move to pass/fail. Our ready-made Step 2 CK flashcards will help you save time as you navigate this busy period of medical school.

Getting Started: Browse vs Study Mode

Just like our customizable USMLE flashcards, known as SmartCards, ReadyDecks are accessible via “Browse” and “Study” mode.

Browse Mode

Within “Browse” mode, you’ll find each flashcard listed under its associated deck. At the top of the screen, you can search for flashcards based on specific keywords, or sort them by subject. This is useful when you need to find specific information or quickly review a topic.

When you open a flashcard, you’ll be able to view the front and back of the card, as well as its associated keywords, in a few simple clicks.

Study Mode

Within “Study” mode, you’ll see the same decks as in Browse mode, but with metrics for each that outline your study progress. The benefit of using Study mode to review your ReadyDecks is the integration of spaced-repetition technology. With this feature, you’ll be prompted to review flashcards you struggle with more frequently to help you learn and retain difficult information over the long term.

In your settings, you can modify your study experience in a few ways. You can choose the maximum number of flashcards to review each day, the order in which they appear, and how many days into the future you want flashcards to reappear after you’ve marked them as “Good” twice (graduating interval) or “Easy.”

Additional Benefits of Premade Medical Flashcards

While we still encourage you to create custom SmartCards as you complete your QBank, ReadyDecks serve as a useful tool to diversify your review. For example, ReadyDecks allow you to:

  • Find and review specific information quickly
  • Learn or strengthen your understanding of important exam concepts
  • Study strategically while away from your desk
