This app brings the total number of United States Medical Licensing Examination question bank apps created by Modality in partnership with McGraw-Hill to twelve, spanning the publisher’s bestselling First Aid, Lange and PreTest series.

“Board review is incredibly taxing for both medical students and their instructors,” said Scott Grillo, vice president and medical publisher of McGraw-Hill Professional. “The volume of material to master is daunting, and providing students with rapid access via iPhone and iPod touch to the thorough, vetted content in our books will no doubt facilitate their success on the exams.”
