The AMBOSS Step 2 CK Self-Assessment is a practice version of the USMLE® Step 2 CK exam, simulating both its structure and scoring. It consists of four question blocks of 40 questions each, presented in the NBME®’s official timed format. After completion, takers will receive a score prediction, performance analysis, and personal study recommendations.

“AMBOSS’ self- assessment was a great transition from passive step studying through classes to focused dedicated study period. This exam gives you a taste of test day and a baseline of where you are going into dedicated...It's really hard to find good questions with good answer explanations, but this self-assessment has them!”

“…[W]hen it came to Step 1 prep, the self-assessment was the perfect first step in getting ready for dedicated studying; not only were questions well made and the test at the perfect time to give me a "baseline" of where I was at knowledge-wise, but also, the in-depth explanations (linked to the AMBOSS library) provided an unparalleled review depth and integration after receiving the score report.”

"Being able to see a percentage correct really helps [you] see progress as the exam fatigue can set in, but it is a similar length to the NBME practice exams so the session still feels accurate. Being able to stop the test easily also helped reduce my own anxiety. I find that the AMBOSS explanations are the best across the multiple banks I’ve used and the incorrect explanations are just as useful."
