Medic World Website Reviews


Welcome to MedicWorld's website review section!

This bit of the site is brand new and still under construction so please be patient with it...

Here are some sites that I have found useful (or not so useful) during my time in medical school. The sites are organised by the categories on the left and each has been given a rating (out of five stars) to guide you in your choice. There's also a complete list of sites here.

Lastly, if you think of a website that we really should have reviewed... or if you disagree with one of my reviews (obviously this would make you wrong), please e-mail me and we can post your reviews online too!

I first heard about onexamination.com early in my final year and it’s a resource that I wish I’d discovered much earlier. While the site does offer book reviews, course information and revision tips, onexamination.com is predominantly an extensive question bank that includes typical assessments for all exams from medical school and PLAB levels, through to The Royal Colleges’ Membership papers.

As a medical student member, you have access to literally thousands of questions, covering general practice, anaesthetics and all of the usual medical and surgical specialities, as well as additional topics on the basic medical sciences, statistics, NICE guidelines and much more. onexamination.com allows users to customise and adapt their revision to their personal needs. Once logged in, you create your own mock exams (either MCQs, EMQs, ‘n’ of many or short answer questions) with between 10 and 100 questions on whichever specialities you want to focus on at that time. Furthermore, you can set the bank to only include questions that you haven’t seen before or even to adjust the questions to your skill level (so they get harder as you get better). When you get bored of revision and something far more exciting crops up halfway through a text, you can even save the test to return to at another date. As you complete your mock exam, you are given your marks and the answers to the questions are explained in a sentence or two at the bottom of the page, sometimes accompanied by external links to further information on the topic...
