Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers

  • What makes USMLE Xponential Advantage different from other resources for USMLE?

    Xponential Advantage is all about teaching you test-taking skills. We believe after 100s of hours of tutoring students for USMLE that the biggest deficiency in most students preparing for USMLE is not knowledge or intelligence; it is test-taking skills. Imagine if you were invited to Top chef and learnt all the recipes by heart, but you didn't know how to cook those dishes. Unfortunately, that's how most students prepare for the USMLE. They have bookish knowledge, but they have no idea how to apply it properly. Our mission is to make you a USMLE Question Solving Master.

  • What is included in the course?

    USMLE Xponential Advantage is a course about supercharging your test-taking skills so you can solve every USMLE Question with profound ease. It has our DD Algorithm - A whole new way to solve questions without getting confused. This is super effective when you are stuck in a question, unsure between 2 choices, or making silly mistakes. It also integrates with our Elimination Blueprint 2.0, a technique that teaches you how to solve questions without always knowing the answer. [Bonus] USMLE Step 1 and Step 2CK Mentoring to teach you the best Resources, Qbanks, and Practice tests for both exams

  • Who should sign up for USMLE Xponential Advantage?

    Xponential Advantage is for any medical student studying for their USMLE Step 1 or Step 2CK, who are looking to supercharge their test-taking skills to take their score to the next level.

  • What is the DD Algorithm?

    Imagine if you went into a jungle and didn't have any idea where you were. How hard would it be for you to escape the jungle? Now imagine if you somehow got a map of the jungle. How easy would it be now to escape? The DD Algorithm is a map for solving every question. It's been designed to guide you when you are confused while solving a question, stuck between multiple answer choices, or don't know the exact answer. Not only that, it prevents overthinking and underthinking that deviates us away from the correct answer.

  • What is the Elimination Blueprint 2.0 ?

    You will never know the answer to all the questions for either Step 1 or Step 2CK. Well, then the question is, if you don't know the answer to a question, how do you solve it? The answer... Ruling out other choices to reach the right answer. Elimination Blueprint covers the vastness of this technique with examples of real questions being solved with elimination. Imagine how confident you will be in your exams if you knew you could solve any question, even if you didn't know the answer.

  • How does this work with my other resources?

    The DD Algorithm and Elimination Blueprint 2.0 offer a whole new way to learn from and integrate all of your resources. Once you have a solid understanding of dissecting questions and Elimination, you will know exactly what to focus on while learning from UWorld, First Aid and Pathoma, and the rest of your resources. This will give you an exponential advantage over other medical students preparing for the USMLEs.

  • When is the best time to do the course?

    When you start your USMLE Journey, be it Step 1 or Step 2CK. The DD Algorithm and Elimination Blueprint 2.0 not only teach you application and test-taking skills, they also teach you how to learn a certain topic from a Qbank or any other resource for maximum impact.

  • ₹7250 is a lot of money... am I getting value for this?

    So the fact of the matter is only very few people teach USMLE test-taking skills. Maybe you have heard of...The Tutoring Companies. These people charge between 150$ to 500$/hr, and if you were to take tutoring from them, it would cost you about a 1000$ to 3500$ to get an idea of test-taking strategy. Furthermore, they don't even teach you an algorithm or a system but only give you a basic idea which in no way is worth it. Our mission is to provide excellent and affordable learning of test-taking skills to all medical students worldwide. This required creating a whole new system that anybody could learn and adapt to. Developing a world-class system and testing it requires lots of time and monetary investment, which is very hard to do. Now anyone wanting to improve their scores doesn't have to shed thousands of dollars for it. So to answer the question briefly... Yes, you are definitely getting value for money!
