New in Firecracker: 1,500 USMLE Questions, Group Discounts & Topic Ratings

Posted by on Mar 17, 2013 9:41:10 PM

Hi Firecrackers!

Guess what? That's right, we have more features and content to announce! Here are some of things we launched last week:

  • 1,500 USMLE Step 1 & Step 2CK Questions. We just released 1,500 USMLE-style questions for Step 1 and Step 2CK and will be adding more every week. Most of these questions are for subjects that fall under either "Organ Systems" or "Clinical Clerkships," but look for USMLE questions for Basic Science subjects soon! These questions were authored by Residents at Mass General and Brigham and Women's Hospitals. We will soon charge separately for these questions, but, if you buy time on Firecracker before then, you will get all of our USMLE-style questions 100% FREE for the length of your subscription! We've been called a First Aid killer and we now have our sights set on the likes of UWorld and Kaplan Qbank. Let the games begin. ;)

  • Group Discounts for Medical Students. Since so many of you have asked us for a discount, we've decided to run a special group deal until March 31st. Both current and new members can get 30% off any subscription plan once your school group reaches 50 or more people. And, even if your group only reaches 25 to 49 people, you will all still get a 20% discount. Click here to learn more about group discount for medical students. (Note: This discount is available for medical students with a valid .edu email address. But, we are working on a deal for International Medical Graduates as well. We love you guys too!)
  • Topics Ratings. To help you figure out what Topics are worth flagging (and to help us improve our Topics), you can now see what your fellow Firecrackers think about any given Topic. To help us and your fellow members, please rate as many Topics as you can and tell us how we can make them better. Please send us content feedback this way rather than via our normal customer service feedback system. Thanks!

As always, let us know what else we can do to help you become a better physician!
