β˜… Syntax changes: all missing and extra line breaks (enters) in the deck have been resolved. Additionally, β€œ->” symbols have universally been changed to β€œβ†’β€

β˜… As we plan for full image support on the web application, we have moved all copyrighted materials (FA and Sketchy) to their respective fields, as well as others (UWorld, OME, Emma Holiday, misc. B&B slides) to the additional resources field. We have plans for replacing the remainder of the images with copyright friendly material from the web to protect the deck for future learners.

β˜… Next steps will be replacing UWorld tables as editable tables within the deck to allow information to easily be updated to reflect the newest practice questions! This is a huge project that we are just beginning to undertake now, and will take quite a bit of time and support.

August + September 2022 Updates

β˜… VERY IMPORTANT The decks have been rearranged so that there is an AnKing head deck and then a β€œStep 1” and β€œStep 2” subdeck. It is not crucial to the update process, but we recommend putting your decks into two similar decks prior to updating so new cards do not import into duplicated decks (Everything needs to be spelled and capitalized exactly as follows: the Step 1 subdeck contains Lolnotacop, Zanki Pharmacology, and Zanki Step Decks; and the Step 2 subdeck contains Cheesy Dorian (M3), MedicalArk, and Zanki Step 2.

β˜… In collaboration with Sketchy, TONS of videos now have updated tags and images. Check out our discounts page for a Sketchy discount: OBGYN tags done (thanks to Emily DJ), images to come soon! Miscellaneous step 2 sketchy tagging done, images to come. Sketchy Anatomy and Sketchy Physiology images and tags added (thanks to Jen, Liam, Ore and reiddd). Sketchy Pharmacology foundations, Biostatistics, & Epidemiology chapter images and tags added (thanks to Miranda)

β˜… In collaboration with OnlineMedEd and based on user feedback, we have updated many of the OME banner links. Check out our discounts page for an OnlineMedEd discount.

β˜… Under the direction of Pixorize, more Pixorize tags and images have been added. Neuro tags thanks to u/intergalactic_badger The images are only available through a paid Pixorize subscription (if you had a subscription previously and don’t know, send them or us an email and they’ll help you out). They are in the Extras section of the website. Check out our discounts page for a Pixorize discount.

β˜… UWorld tags: Step 1 & Step 2 tags reorganized to work with the UWorld QID to Anki Search Add-on (member-exclusive add-on). Most of UWorld Step 2CK tagging complete (thanks to Abdulla, Jacob, u/Joshausha).

β˜… Boards & Beyond Step 2 neurology, renal and pediatrics tagged (thanks to u/mintfanatic and u/kushapatel07).

β˜… Syntax changes: made all a/an’s before a cloze β€œa(n)” to fix ambiguity; removed line breaks at the end of cards; removed all periods at the end of cards.

β˜… Many images were moved from the extra section to their appropriate field

β˜… Note Styling: Significant updates to the AnKingOverhaul note type are automatically sent via the AnKing Note Types (Easy Customization) add-on. 1) See this video for details about the new note types and add-on. The add-on allows for very easy customization of the note type (with no coding knowledge!) 2) A Bootcamp field was added for future updates that Bootcamp is going to add. We are working closely with them and expect to get these updates in the near future.
