When you log into USMLE-Rx, you may notice that the landing page looks a bit different. Here are a couple of helpful hints to get you started:
- The search bar in the top right of the page lets you search across the entire USMLE-Rx ecosystem—even the First Aid ebook—by topic. From there, you can create question sets or flashcard decks, view videos, pull up Rx Bricks, or refer to facts from First Aid for the USMLE Step 1.
First off, we made it easier for you to see which subscriptions you currently have and how much time you have left.
Up at the top, you’ll see your latest activity. Perhaps you were reviewing a brick last night before falling asleep and you’re struggling to recall which brick it was. Now, you can jump straight to that brick.
If you have Rx360 or Flash Facts, you’ll now be able to go straight into Study Stream from the dashboard. You can adjust your daily goal and see how many overdue cards you have in your queue.
The dashboard also gives you a quick way to see your progress in various tools like Qmax, Flash Facts, and Express Videos, or go straight to the main areas. So, for example, in Step 1 Qmax or Step 2 CK Qmax, you can:
- View your tests
- Create a test
- See how many questions you’ve answered and how many you’ve gotten correct or incorrect.
- Or go to the cumulative analysis
In Flash Facts, you can:
- View your existing decks
- Create a new deck
- See the confidence ratings for all of your cards. Again, if you want to go deeper, the cumulative analysis is there for you.
For Express Videos, you can:
- View your playlists
- Browse videos
- Or go deeper and see your confidence levels based on the videos you've watched
At the bottom of the dashboard, you can see key information regarding your use of Rx Bricks.
- The bricks you've worked on recently
- The number of bricks you've completed
- The number of collections you've completed, and
- The amount of time you've spent studying in Rx Bricks
What does the red/yellow/green color-coding mean?
As you make your way through the USMLE-Rx study materials, your progress is indicated by color coding. Green means you've nailed it, yellow indicates that you know it but that your confidence is shaky, and red indicates an area of deficit. You will see the red/yellow/green coding throughout the USMLE-Rx interface in all of our products, so you always know where you stand.
