I am a medical graduate from University of Ibadan, Nigeria. I graduated in 1997. I completed my residency training in Nigeria and Germany in 2007. I have been working in the private sector as a consultant cardiologist for the past 15 years, before deciding to try new horizon in Canada. So I registered to write the Canadian medical licensing exams starting with the MCCQE part 1. Initially I found it very difficult to study because I have been away from academic life for such a long time. However once I was introduced to the Canadaq bank. It was very helpful to me because with it, I could cover several topics at a shorter period of time, and it also helped me to remember what I have read and know my shortfalls, that is topics I was not very conversant, so that I could focus on them. I was able to pass the exam at my first sitting and I know that without the Canadaq bank, I would not have been able to make it. The questions and the format of their questions are very similar to the real exam.

I am a Canadian who studied abroad in Scotland. CanadaQBank was invaluable in my preparation for writing the MCCQE1. I was very happy with the service and I ultimately scored well on the exam (84th percentile). I would absolutely recommend CanadaQBank to anyone working towards writing the MCCQE exams. I suspect you will quickly realise how valuable a resource it is. I can't imagine how I would have prepared without this resource.

I have used the Canada qbank for CDM practice. This is the best and only resource that I found that can be reliable and give a good set of cases to practice. The explanation is really detailed and their support video on the Youtube channel is helpful. I have also done as many cases as possible, especially in the area of family medicine and ethics. I really recommend this resource as part of the mandatory preparation for taking the MCCQE1.

I have always dreamed of serving as a doctor like my grandfather. No matter how much effort I put in I could not start residency due to a insufficient scores on the board exams. I realized how my style of studying for these board exams was wrong. I tried uWorld as most people in the United States suggested and it was not working. Since I was not becoming successful in matching in the United States, I decided to try the Canadian exams and try matching in Canada. It was then I found CanadaQBank. I found that I can take multiple board exam prep courses. The style and formatting of questions was much improved and closer to my thought process. I learned information on a higher level. It was also less expensive so I decided to try the Step 2 CK, Step 2 CS and MCCQE Part 1 exam prep. Viola! I have passed my Step 2 CS exam without a sweat. I started to trust the CanadaQBank service since then and it has not failed me yet. Thank you for all of your help and I want to pass this onto my sister and other prospective residents.

Hi I subscribed CanadaQBank for MCCQE 1 exam. First of all, the reason I subscribed was they had an option of free subscription for 2 months in case you don't clear the exam (conditions apply!). I thought they must be simply extraordinary, otherwise who ll guarantee like this. I started solving their questions. They were distinct, and explanation was thorough. They covered all topics. And more importantly, when ever I had doubts regarding the questions or explanation, I mailed them and they promptly responded. To be frank, this was my only material. I cleared the exam in my first attempt. And, I am not exaggerating or falsely claiming any of this. I recommend canada q bank for MCCQE 1 exam. Thank you

As part of becoming a fully registered staff (consultant) physician in Canada with my Irish credentials I had to write the MCCQE. The last time I managed adults was in my intern year (8 years ago) so needles to say I was a little rusty. With less than 1 month of CanadaQBank I was able to revise enough to pass the MCCQE, in all honesty with most of the work being done in the last 3 days before the exam. The questions were representative and the explanations were helpful. The videos provided nice refreshers on topics as well as useful tips on the types of questions that would come up. CanadaQBank was instrumental to my passing mark.

I am an IMG, and did my Pediatric residency in NJ. At the time I was studying for MCCQE 1, I was graduated from residency for 5 years. I have study physiology and other specialties again for this exam. It was quite challenging especially coming from another country. Canada Qbank was comprehensive and back to the basics. I specially like the Youtube videos as it makes the subjects more virtual. Questions are similar to the actual exam, so they are good preparation. I passed the exam with a score a 277, and I am satisfied with my learning experience. Thank you!

I used the surgical foundations question bank to supplement my study for the royal college surgical foundations exam. I found it to be a very useful study tool. The app makes it especially useful to be able to review on-the-go and in between cases. I also liked that I was able to refine questions by subject topic so I could work on my weaknesses. Overall and excellent tool that I would recommend to everyone writing this exam.

I'm a graduate of a Canadian medical school but did residency abroad. Now that I am returning to North America to work, I needed to write the MCCQE1.

I started reading questions from Canada Q bank for my MCCQE 1 exam. I liked the way they've framed the whole layout of website, viz unused, incomplete, incorrect questions. Questions and explanations covering all topics are excellent, they don't twist or repeat the questions, all questions are different. Whenever I had queries, I mailed them and they responded well. Now I have cleared my exam. Thank you.

International medical student writing the mccqe1 and passed first try. CanadaQBank was useful to me for getting used to the CDM's style. I didn't use the mcq's very much and it might've helped get used to shorter stems compared to uworld. Overall happy with my 1 month subscription to fine tune to the qe1 cdms.

I just finished my MD. During my preclinical years, I used QBank to help me prepare to my exam. I chose the questions according to the topic of my exam. During my clerkship, I did QBank to help me study during each rotation. During my las year of MD, I used QBank to prepare the LMCC1 and my final faculty exams. QBank helped me a lot because it tested my knowledge, instead of just passively reading, and I could see my progress. I succeeded very well all my exams throughout my MD and my LMCC. I am so glad I subscribed for almost 4 years, it was definitely my best investment in my studying ! Good luck with your exams !!

I'm a PGY4 currently completing my second year of Psychiatry registrar training in Australia. I am originally from Canada, and wanted the option to be able to return to Canada once I have completed my registrar training in Australia, so I knew that I needed to pass the MCCQE Part 1 exam. I had previously used CanadaQBank to study for the MCCEE, so I immediately thought of using CanadaQBank again to help me study for the MCCQE1. I purchased a 6-month subscription, which was a perfect amount of time for me to refresh my knowledge on the more general aspects of medicine, as I was not seeing a lot of general practice or specialised surgical presentations in my full-time work in Psychiatry. CanadaQBank also provided me with ways to revise my knowledge of the Canadian ethical aspects of medicine, which can vary slightly from the Australian standards that I have become familiar with over the past several years. I cannot express how much the CanadaQBank exam preparation helped me when studying for the MCCQE1. I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have passed the exam without the materials and exam preparation provided through the QBank.

J'ai finit mon doctorat en médecine à l'université de Montréal en mai 2022. Mon objectif était de rentrer en médecine de famille, ce en quoi j'ai été accepté.

Il m'a aussi permis de réviser avec mes amis, puisque nous nous questionnions à tour de rôle! eux aussi réussi leur examen. Je suis heureux d'avoir réussi Merci!

Canada QBank was a great tool to be able to rigorously prepare for the MCCQE Part 1. The questions were very exam-like, the multiple choice were challenging and the explanations stimulated advanced learning. I went with the 3 month package and a 3-month studying period was sufficient for myself thanks to the depth of content covered by the CQB. I felt very prepared for my MCCQE the day off and left the exam with a great feeling as well.

I put 3 months of my time during my clinical rotations towards studying for my Canadian MCCQE1. I used only canada Qbank and my learning experience during my rotations to get this done. I am truly thankful to CanadaQbank for giving me an idea of what to expect. I was so used to the USMLE platforms and exam experience I had no idea what to expect with the MCCQE, but I was able to pass on first try with a 241

I registered for 3 months access for my PEBC EE and it was very helpful as a practice for the materials I had studied prior to my registration. I like that there were explanations for each topic and you can create a quiz based on the topics you need to focus on. I was able to pass my PEBC EE on my first attempt and CanadaQBank played a big role in that. I found that there were some areas of study I would have missed otherwise.

Decide to write the MCCQE1 in December , heard from a couple of friends who have used it before who mentioned it's very useful but probably tougher than the actual exam. Subscribed for 2 months in January hoping to write in February. My experience in General practice helped with most of it but the clinical decision making was where I found Canadaqbank most useful even though it's still different to the actual exam but no doubt provided me great deal of knowledge base to tackle the exam. Highly recommended! Happy it helped me pass at first time of asking
