Surgery Shelf - 96th Percentile
I used AMBOSS as my primary resource to prepare for my surgery shelf exam, and am quite happy with my score (96th percentile!)! AMBOSS is a fantastic resource for medical students preparing for their exams.

"And the students who are doing all of their clinical/pre-clinical work with this resource are so lucky, they have no idea how much better this is than the options before it."

" I finally found the most efficient way to learn"
"Amboss won me over with being one platform on which I can do pretty much everything. Question bank has a fantastic feature of highlighting important concepts that a student should pay attention to in order to answer the question. Having that feature primed my brain to quickly pick out relevant clues out a sea of details, which frequently overwhelmed me before - especially during an exam. The answers are formatted in a rule in/rule out method. I really appreciated this approach since I saw exactly where my knowledge gaps were. With most other question banks I could only test myself by organ system, but with Amboss I could also test myself by presenting symptoms!! We all know our test question is going to start with 'patient coming in with a caught, fatigue, and fever...' but now there is a way to find what is unique about one presentation v.s. another. If I was interested in a topic that was tested in the question there was a side bar that gave me the opportunity to review everything about the pathology in a concise/high yield manner. Whether it was epidemiology, treatment, diagnostic exams... it had it all! It even provided me with differentials!! I couldn't believe my eyes. I was so happy that I no longer needed 4 books to be open in front of me to get a full picture. I finally found the most efficient way to learn. I saved and still saving so much time. I am not sure how I stumbled upon Amboss, but once I started using it I felt as though I found gold. Amboss found a way to organize the information in the most efficient way possible. Amboss has to be part of a students tool box from the beginning of medical school. "
