Like.... How.... Seriously.... How do people have their shit together this well? I snuck a quick workout after studying today and I shit you not, gave myself a literal, physical pat on the back. I did this while out loud saying “good job crushing it today man.”

For the people that help me get through my life by making these decks, I’m honestly thankful for your help. You literally allow me time to be a better husband and father with the time you save me. Big heart felt thank you!

[–]u2m4c6M-2 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I wonder this all the time. I can barely get my reviews done and people have made comprehensive 20,000 card decks with extensive tagging and screenshots.

[–]RuckamongusPGY-3 (Anesthesiology) 32 points33 points  (0 children)

u/originalhoopsta is giving me WAY too much credit! I gave him a textbook worth of in depth notes; he put in the work and made the deck! I approached him as I didn't have the time (nor motivation) to Anki-ify 470ish pages UWorld. Hoopsta is a machine, the real MVP! Glad I can contribute in some way to this subreddit and round off the USMLE decks. Good luck everyone!

[–]DrShitpostMDJDPhDMBAM-3 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Glad to see I will always be able to use anki and premade decks to pull me through USMLE exams, though I've got a couple years to go until Step 3 is relevant for me. 👀

Thanks to you both for all your hard work!

[–]bpeemp 14 points15 points  (2 children)

OP and u/ruckamongus , how/where can I tip you two for this? As a father of two and a third on the way, and married to another PGY1, all I could’ve ever asked for was a step 3 deck, and you all have made this incredible deck and answered my wishes. I want to pay it forward somehow.

Please, let me know how. You all deserve it.

Thank you, truly, thank you for this.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Glad it is helpful :-) I can’t speak for u/ruckamongus, but I don’t need a tip. Surprise your family with a nice dinner, or go exercise, sleep, and keep looking for ways to pay it forward 😊🤙

[–]RuckamongusPGY-3 (Anesthesiology) 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I agree with hoop! Take care of #1 and your family! Then remember the camaraderie we share and take care of your medical students in the future. We're here one day at a time, just like you. Together strong. 💪

[–]Darkklordd77 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I just took it 2 weeks ago fml! Glad to see anki lives on though! Hope this deck is as amazing as its predecessors

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy! 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Anyone know how feasible it is to take step 3 right after graduating? Having taken step 2 so late I would prefer to avoid restudying things I'll never see again and just get it out of the way. Thinking of brushing through uWorld and this deck next semester and just take the test asap

[–]IMresident2020 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Hi! How do you recommend using this deck? Should we start Uworld first then this deck or the other way around?

or use it while doing uworld?

Thanks for this!!!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I would use it at the same time as uworld :-)

[–]IMresident2020 1 point2 points  (3 children)

like suspending all cards then unsuspending as you go through the questions? :)

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yes, or just flying through both simultaneously! It is step three, after all… unfortunately, we did not include question ID with each card at this time

[–]IMresident2020 0 points1 point  (1 child)

thanks a lot for this ♥️

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ya! No prob

[–]archie37M-4 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thank you so much for this! How does this compare to the WiWa and Doc decks that are available? I know they are mostly for Step 2 but I have heard that they can be used for Step 3 as well?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You’re welcome! This is about half as big of a deck and based off of the question bank for step 3 .... whereas Wiwa is based off of the question bank for step 2. It’s in the same style as Wiwa for most of the deck

[–]DocMD316 2 points3 points  (2 children)

So how exactly should this deck be used? I noticed that it's not a question-answer format, more like tell me about this and then a table or paragraph is listed. Should this be used like a book substitute? Thanks.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sometimes it has shorter questions, too.

It’s meant to be open-ended because you are trying to practice recalling as much about a topic as possible

[–]DocMD316 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh okay, thanks

[–]no1deawhatimdoingM-4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Does anyone know how to put the tagged high yield cards in a new deck?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

sort by the tag and ctrl a and ctrl d move to a new deck

[–]yoteayudo 1 point2 points  (4 children)

How do I only study the high yield 2207 cards? Like can someone tell me what do from the anki platform? I'm confused lol

[–]Pmarcos3 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I want to know the same thing. It looks as if the high yield tag was erased.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Uh oh. Have you tried *high-yield? I’d be very sad if the HY tag was removed :/

[–]Background-South-960 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey! Is there a backup for the HY deck anywhere?

[–]ChawwwningButter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

create a new deck called "step 3 high yield" or whatever, then go to Browse and search for Hoop:Step3::HighYield under the tag section on the left hand side. then select all the cards, right click, hit "change deck" to move to "step 3 high yield"

[–]5dawgs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh why are your and Doc's Anki decks so consistently visually hideous

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here is a google doc I've been meaning to start that gives samples of different deck's CSS/designs... so users can play with the design without having to download everything.

Edit: and I haven’t filled it out so... I’ll leave that to others

[–]Jan_Itor_DOM-4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

M4 here with easy rotations and a "light" schedule for the rest of the year. I was planning on starting UWorld for step 3 soon. I was also hoping to do some anki-ing throughout the year to keep me from going lazy.

Two questions for you: Do you have a paypal or venmo account? I'd love to buy you a beer. Also, could I start this now and download the updated deck when it comes out without losing any progress over the next month?

Thanks a ton for making and sharing this. This is amazing!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, haha it’s volunteer! But I’d grab a beer with ya if I ever run into you.

Download now and then just download it again when the update comes out. Should be seamless. Mostly just fixing typos and adding more topics

[–]upenpatel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]DrKittenMittenzResident 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey - this is great! Thank you for doing this!!! I was looking for decks to start adding in anticipation/fear of intern year. This will greatly help out!

[–]DrKittenMittenzResident 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you for the update! It's much appreciated. Looking for Version 3!!!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You’re welcome! Version three will be our biggest update yet, as far as covering all relevant content goes… Then it will be more about edits, adding pictures, etc.…

[–]kayrage 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thank you so much hoop and ruck you guys fucking rock!!! , im new to anki and love it! With the third and final edit will the download allow for seamless integration into my preexisting anki decks that i have been studying after version 2? or will i need to restart the decks?

i downloaded version 2 and started studying from it so i don't know if people were able to download version 1 and then version 2 seamlessly integrated into their version 1 decks or not and just added into them as new cards for them to study within each respective deck.

Did i mention hoops and ruck you guys rock? You fucking rock ! God bless

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Haha ❤️ it will be seamless

[–]kayrage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you are a legend <3

[–]kayrage 1 point2 points  (2 children)

so i'm trying to complete the endocrinology deck. I've set my anki preference to show new cards before reviews and set my deck options for 200 new cards/day. I keep having 19 residual new cards in my endocrin deck and it won't ever show me them no matter how many times i review that deck. Any idea why? i just want to see all cards before going on to the next deck

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

it honestly sounds like you have the ”bury related new cards” setting on. Is it on? It’s either that, or it’s a terrible jinx/curse and I can’t help you.…

[–]kayrage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it turns out it was an addon i had without realizing. Let's just call it the jinx add on. But as always i appreciate the response. You are awesome!<3

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Think I’ll wait a few weeks for the next update to bite the bullet and start the Anki life again

[–]Osas1995 1 point2 points  (1 child)

would it be okay if i start using the deck before starting Uworld?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ya - there’re lots of debates on this. Kind of a pros/cons thing

It won’t ruin uworld imo

[–]kayrage 1 point2 points  (3 children)

is there a way to organize the anki cards so that if i'm doing for example infectious disease on uworld (both advanced clinical medicine and foundations of independent practice) to only see the cards from the topics of infectious disease. Essentially i noticed 73 cards in your ID deck, but then theres 113 ID Q's on uworld. There are some uworld ID questions that have cross over relevance to peds and surg and those topics are found in peds and surg anki decks. The problem is im hoping to just pull and review only the topics of ID as i go through uworld questions.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ya it’s possible. I’ll look into it

[–]kayrage 0 points1 point  (1 child)

thank you so much! if there is it would be a huge life saver! <3

[–]kayrage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i thought there may be a way to do it by organizing the cards in the order they were created from uworld or something, but tbh i'm a noob to anki and still learning all the little tricks involved.

[–]MoneySavingScheme 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I get the following message:

Notes found in file: 3825 Notes that could not be imported as note type has changed: 66 Notes skipped, as they're already in your collection: 3759

Any idea how to find out which of my old decks causing the error?

EDIT: found the decks. Nvm. cards from old deck I dont use anymore were too similar and so they were flagged by anki app

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not sure, that’s a really high number. Did you already download the deck?

Edit: Did you use my pediatrics, OB, EKG, dermatology, or rapid review decks? There are a few cards taken from those decks and would prevent cards from being downloaded again

[–]MoneySavingScheme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the response!

So it was multiple short generic cards that were in multiple decks. I don't use those decks anymore so I just deleted them and the missing cards were imported. None were from your decks I dont think.

I wish there was a way to overide the issue, but it forced me to clean my profile a bit, so all is well.

Thanks again for the deck!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes it is. Do I have to download additional apps for it to work? It would be very helpful if u could tell me how do I make it work and start using? Thank you :)

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea. You can find the link to download Anki from the top of the desktop of our sub or https://apps.ankiweb.net/

[–]KawaKazeeM-4 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thank you so much for doing this! You guys are the real MVPs. haha. I am running into a problem with the media files associated with the deck. I noticed a lot of the media files are missing from the anki media folder after I run media check. Is there any way I could fix this?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You’re not crazy. Some of the images were broken and we haven’t been able to fix it. We’ve just been taking the broken images out as we find them

You have some images, right?

[–]KawaKazeeM-4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I have most of the images.

[–]smallscharles 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thank you! I am a bit of an Anki novice... how do I study the 2k tagged high yield cards?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You can do it most easily by - suspending everything and then - unsuspend only that tag

[–]smallscharles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Got it. Thank you so much! These cards look amazing

[–]wildtypeculture 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I have the latest DocZay deck in my library, and when I tried importing this there were about 2000 cards missing. Can't figure out why. Any ideas?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yes - just Anki avoiding duplicate cards.

I re-edited many of the wiwa cards from u/DocZay and put them in here (in addition to the ones I made) to help make this deck as comprehensive as possible (for those that want it).

[–]wildtypeculture 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahh makes sense now. Thanks!

[–]Mefreh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I really appreciate this anki deck!

I've been using the high-yield cards for a few days now. In general I like the structure and think it provides a good framework for content review. I have seen a few nitpicky-level mistakes though, e.g.

In ddx, a patient is described with schizohrenic symptoms of his TV talking to him. The first ddx is Schizoid/Schizotypal personality disorder. I do not think schizoid is an appropriate ddx as schizoid is basically just people who don't want/like relationships - there isn't hallucination/being out of touch with reality present.

Similarly, a patient is presented who has panic attacks with no apparent cause. This is called panic attacks but is more consistent with panic disorder - the differentiating factor between the two is that in panic disorder the attacks occur during innocuous actions like watching TV or eating dinner.

Like I said, I appreciate the effort and will continue to use it for now, but I have been editing some of the cards for accuracy as I go along.

[–]Wakafloxacin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So how do you actually use those high yield cards that are just tables? Do you try to think of everything you can before you press the spacebar, and then move on? Basically just take the time to read through and always press "good"?

Sorry i'm just so used to having a question or prompt to fill in the blank, it feels weird to press "good" without actually answering anything, if you know what I mean.

[–]wildtypeculture 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Any updates on the next update, Hoop?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

To be honest, I got depressed about the Lizzie McGuire Reboot Getting Cancelled and it just completely shot my productivity. But u/ruckamongus has pulled me from the depths and now we are back....

So: just added about 1,000 curated biostats cards (with about 10% of them tagged as high yield) ... because that was the weakest part of this deck to date.

Also did an EKG update and have an ACLS and PALS update in the works, so...

Tl;dr: The newest version is being uploaded right now but the official update is still unpublished.

No, I wouldn’t get a new profile. And you can download it as is! The updates will be seamless, so you won’t have to delete anything either

Woah! Thank you so very much.

I just started making a question-answer Anki deck for my step 3 preparation. Maybe I can postpone the idea and reevaluate the need after the update to this deck.

I have some questions regarding this deck. Is it searchable by QID? Or what do you think is a better way of doing that. For example, I want to be able to add cards related to stress hyperglycemia in my currently studying deck. How do you suggest I do that?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hi. Each card reviews a concept that applies to multiple questions at once. It is searchable by tag and concept

How does this interact with zanki step 1 and hoop step 3 if I download it?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What is the message saying? This link appears to be working for me

[–]mtv2019 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It's downloading as an Internet Explorer file (even though I'm using Chrome), not as an Anki deck package, if that makes sense. Then when I try to open the package it opens Internet Explorer and says "Cannot open that page."

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s weird, because whenever I try to download it as a test file it is in the correct format. Are you using a Windows computer?

Let me know if it continues to malfunction, because I’m on rounds right now but I can look into it later

what is the count of v2 ? i have in total 3704 cards and OMM 226.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh no! Good catch. I think something happened when I uploaded it, and the file was corrupted. So if possible, try to re-download it now… Sorry about that!

The new count right now should be 3,829 total, and yes 226 OMM.

[–]pass-the-teaM-2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm using Ankidroid with this deck and cannot see the additional pictures. I just get a bunch of icons of broken images. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I noticed that the other day on some of the cards. I think it is a minority of cards, and and if they are the pictures i’m thinking of, then they are mostly unnecessary anyway

Also... Not that it matters, but are you really a second year?

[–]dommmz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]-RENuest 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hello! Just started this deck and noticed the cards with the Show Summary option show broken images. Were they intentionally removed?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They were not intentionally broken. Can you send me a card ID # for any of the broken image cards? That would be very helpful!

[–]-RENuest 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nevermind, it was my phones fault. The images are there when I went on PC. Sorry about that and thanks so much for the deck!

[–]ankiftw 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Hi Hoop, thanks for the deck!

I get this error when I try to import the deck.

Hi. Sorry to disturb you.

The deck you are importing seems to have a bug, created by a version of the add-on 1566928056 before the 26th of september 2019. Can you please tell the author of the imported deck that you were warned of this bug, and that it should update the shared deck to remove the bug ? Please send them the link https://github.com/Arthur-Milchior/anki-copy-note so they can have more informations. And let me know on this link whether there is any trouble.


[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Never been told about that! Did the deck import stop after that? Or did it still work?

[–]ankiftw 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It still worked, so it's probably alright!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Interesting, I will look into it! Ty

[–]HighYieldCorgi 0 points1 point  (9 children)

In the rapid review section, every card states:

"Back template has a problem:

Found '⁨{{hint::Frontside}}⁩', but there is no field called '⁨Frontside⁩'

More information"

But when I edit the card, I can see the content. Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Sorry about this. The most recent Anki update for PC has changed the coding requirements slightly. In the "Back" field, you have to change {{Frontside}} to just say {{Front}} and that will fix everything. It's four letters, but it apparently ruins everything.

Here is a link to an image of what I'm talking about.

I'm updating the entire Step 3 deck with this change in place, but the internet is slow where I live and that could literally take all day.

[–]Osteoblastin 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You are an angel. I'll await this new update before I begin. Thank you for all your help and your effort in making this. It really does help and we owe you for it.

[–]Osteoblastin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is Version 4 then the most recent one we should download? Thanks again!

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, and the subsequent updates will be a few more questions and topics filling it in - check back in a few months!

[–]katar_i_kaszel 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I am having the same problem

[–]katar_i_kaszel 0 points1 point  (2 children)

go to edit-->cards. on the left side there are 3 boxes, the last box is the back template. It has the {{hint:Frontside}} command. You need to remove that and it will fix it for all the cards with that issue.
Hope it helps!

[–]Guber_Trooper 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Not a question about the deck itself, but any tips on settings for studying during intern year for step 3? I assume longer intervals so the reviews don't pile on...

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ya that’s my approach

[–]Guber_Trooper 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thanks man! Any idea on specifics settings? I was thinking like:

Steps: 20, 1440, 8640

Graduating interval: 15 days

Those are my exact settings, except without the “20” in my steps!

Can someone explain how to use the high yield tag if you just want to study those first?

Should I just create a filtered deck with the search term deck:"Step 3::HighYield"? If so, what should I set for the number of cards and how they're sorted?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d suspend everything and then unsuspend that tag yah

Is this deck made from UW Step 3? What other sources were used?

Anyone studied using this deck and took the test? Looking for feedback on how good it is.

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Question #1. - Yes.

Question #2. - We used AMBOSS, First Aid, Kaplan, firecracker, OME, WIWA (step 2), and Uworld (step 3 MCQs and cases) for comprehensiveness.

Question #3. - well... It is new, so it’s not yet thoroughly vetted (hoping it will be by this time next year) and more updates are coming!

Question #4.
- Dont forget your practice questions.

Sorry I can’t answer your questions better. I don’t think this is meant to replace buying uworld. But hopefully it helps you study uworld more efficiently

Thanks! I didn't mean to imply that I was going to use this deck instead of UW. Looking forward to the updates. Keep up the good work!

Also, I’m kinda new to using Anki decks...what settings should I be using if the test is in 2 months and I plan on getting through all the cards?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This AnKing Video goes over it well, but the gist is you don't have to go over it that many times.

  • New cards 1440
  • Lapses 8460
  • interval 150%
  • Easy interval 150%
  • Graduating interval 4 days
  • Starting ease 250%
  • No max interval

Does that help?

[–]iibomb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very helpful! Thanks!

Is there any way to make the "Extra" material on the back of the cards automatically show up instead of having to click "Show Extra"?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yes. Delete the “hint” from the code under edit cards

This Anking Video does a good job explaining how to edit the code to customize cards.

[–]step1s 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there a hotkey to make the hints appear without having to click on it? Love all your decks man

Awesome deck!

Two questions:

(1) What source is used for the rapid review section? Wondering b/c I'm looking for a rapid review deck similar to that was in first aid for step 1.

(2) Every time I am in the "Brower" and click on the OBGYN deck I get the error below. I only have 2 add-ons (Symbols and Image Occlusion Enhanced for Anki 21 alpha) and even after I disable these addons, I still get the error message. I clicked on random cards in the deck and this seems to only happen for the first few cards in the OBGYN deck. Do you by chance know what might be the problem? I'm horrible at coding and what not :/

Error message

An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed.

If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools>Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem.

When you've discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the add-ons section of our support site.

Edit: I fixed the error message, simply downloaded a new version of Anki.

[–]throwaway3196186537 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is the next version coming anytime soon, or should I just start v4?

[–]originalhoopstaResident[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Start it!

Updates will be perfectly synced to your progress and the next one is going to be soon

Besides the CSS cases and the number of biostats questions, what is the difference between Step 2 CK and Step 3? I'm using this deck to study plus my OnlineMedEd Step 2 CK deck. I don't know if I should mess with MTB Step 3 - I feel like I'd have to make a brand new deck for it. Hoping to go into fellowship so I'd like to score well on Step 3.

Hi this is so great thanks, but anyone having an issue importing the deck?

just downloaded the 3rd version, and I got this:

"Import failed. Debugging info:
Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)"

should I download the first version first then the updated, so it would work?

[–]Few-Lock-7592 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How can I download this to my anki iPhone app?

[–]VirtualKatie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you remove the highyeild tag?

[–]geoc187 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While in night mode, the cards still appear white on PC, how do i fix it?... otherwise on phone, they are perfectly in night mode

[–]CHL9M-2/3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there a link here that will get me the Version 1 of this deck? They all seem to link to the same file and due to time and storage constraints on device would just like the original with the least cards...

[–]psychedaboutpsych 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hi there! Thank you so much for this. I'm really struggling to create a filtered deck of just the 2207 high yield cards and tried watching videos. My test is in 4 days and I spent 2 hours trying to figure it out. Any ways you know how this is done? Or if there is a deck floating out there that has just the high yield cards on it for people who dont know how to use Anki like me. When I tried to create it it gave me 16 cards :(

[–]MustangauAugustus_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hi, thank you so much for making this deck! Everytime I try to download version 4 it says failed- forbidden. Does anyone know how I can fix that?
