While some students have seen tremendous success using Firecracker as their sole USMLE-prep resource, we are confident that this program will complement the rest of your materials. For instance, although Firecracker can absolutely be relied upon to replace First Aid, you will find page numbers for reference in Firecracker to the most commonly used review sources (including First Aid 2017): labs.firecracker.me/search

The more high-quality reference and review books and practice questions you can get your hands on, the better. If you want to supplement Firecracker’s thousands of practice questions with another question bank, UWorld is generally considered the gold standard for that. Here are the most popularly used review resources to use alongside Firecracker: http://blog.firecracker.me/students/tools-for-dedicated-prep-part-1
