Question about QBank



I'm starting to use the amboss qbank for step 2. I noticed you can make filters for the types of questions you want to see. For example you can make a filter to see all IM shelf + Surgery shelf questions if you want. Suppose I only want to see the questions that are in BOTH obgyn shelf AND the step2ck question list. Is there a way for me to do this? I do seem to see it right now.

    Hi Michael, 

    Thanks for reaching out about this! 

    You can complete a Qbank Session with questions that are Editorial team has deemed high yield for both the Step 2 CK Exam and the OBGYN Shelf by creating a Qbank Custom Session and filtering by Exam. To do this, select Qbank > Custom Session in the sidebar menu of the platform. Then, once on the "New Custom Session" page, select the Exam filter and check the box next to USMLE Step 2 CK. After that, stay within the Exam filter and select the drop down next to Clinical Shelf Exams, and check the box next to Shelf – Obstetrics & Gynecology and press done. 

    After that, make sure to set up all your other filters according to your preferences. Then, you'll be able to start a Qbank Custom Session with questions deemed high-yield for those exams in either Exam or Study Mode. 

    I hope this clarifies, but please feel free to reach out to us at with any other questions. Happy studying!
