Rosh Vs. HIPPO med recommendations?

Recommended Posts

From my understanding HIPPO is like a course while Rosh is only a question bank.  So I think it depends on how you failed and what you need to work on. If you lack content I think HIPPO would be better for you but if you had test anxiety and struggled with vignettes Rosh is your answer.

I tried both HIPPO and ROSH and thought ROSH was MUCH better. I was not a fan of HIPPO at all. I felt like most of the questions in HIPPO relied on recognizing "buzzwords" and the PANCE has really moved away from using buzzwords. In my opinion, the ROSH questions were a much better reflection of the types of questions and the difficulty level that you will see on the PANCE. They also had better explanations for why each answer was correct/incorrect. Also, I was able to get a free month trial of ROSH. If I were you, I would try emailing them and tell them you are trying to decide between the two question banks. Ask them if they would consider giving you a free trial to help you decide. Nothing to lose by asking.

PANCE is death by questions.  Rosh will allow you to do that over and over.  Although costly, I highly recommend the extra EOR exams and 300 set practice banks.

I don't know anything about hippo but I think nearly everyone in my class used ROSH and passed.

After using both rosh for my first exam that I failed and hippoed/Medgeeks for my second, I felt way more confident with hippoed. It allowed me to review and test myself while rosh is just a Q bank. Hoping that I passed this time, still waiting on results.

      Hey Yall
      Currently prepping for the PANCE. I have been studying for the past two months from PPP and ROSH. Initially I did alot of reading from PPP with scattered questions realizing quickly this is not as effective as making notes. I started to make notes for the bigger systems, such as CARDS, PULM, GI, MSK. Ive been studying everyday from 10-12 hours and with a week left I get this feeling that Im not ready. 
      Below I posted my results I took two weeks ago, not sure how to feel. 
      My question to yall is, what are some strategies you used to take exams? what algorithm did you have in your mind when analyzing a question. 
      My ROSH score is a 578 with 92% passing but I understand this isnt as predictable. 
      I have played with Kaplan and have scored in the mid 60s to 70s on it within each organ system.
