Scored 260 on Step2CK with AMBOSS:

The questions provided are very well written and generally cover high-yield topics in a structure similar to the real exam. I believe all students wishing to ace the exam should use it to strengthen important topics, practice your weakest points and build the confidence needed for the real deal!

* Ongoing surveys sent to 6000+ medical students at 124 U.S. medical schools since 2018 make the foundation of our research into AMBOSS usage and scoring.

Verified USMLE Step 1 and 2 CK reports were correlated with individual AMBOSS platform statistics — namely number of exam-style multiple-choice questions completed and Learning Cards read. Study participants represented AMBOSS usage ranging from no activity to completion of more than 5,000 exam-style questions in the AMBOSS platform.

Although exams are important, we understand that scores only represent one point being used to consider residency and other career opportunities. AMBOSS helps students in many aspects of medical excellence, and we want to remind you that your score does not define who you are or the contributions you can give to patients, research and more in the future.
