How can I clear my question history so that I can start with a clean slate?
On your My Profile page, you can select to clear your performance data by clicking "yes" to reset your account. Once done, the system will reflect all questions as unanswered and your performance history will be completely erased.
How can I make sure that I see all of the questions in the database?
Make sure to select "Unanswered" as your question type from the Create Your Own Quiz page. Then, when you select questions by learning objective, you'll be able to calculate the number of unanswered questions remaining in that learning objective. Choose some or all of those questions for each learning objective until there are none remaining.
Why am I seeing the same questions more than once?
The Easy suite of sites uses adaptive technology, which creates a customized study plan based on your skills, your time, and what you need to learn to maximize your score. The questions item are not delivered randomized; they are delivered adaptively based on your specific proficiency and responses. If you are seeing questions more than once, the platform has determined the questions are from your weaker learning objectives.
I think I found an error in a question. What do I do?
The questions in the Easy suite of sites undergo extensive editing. You can report content issues by clicking the "Report Content Errors" link underneath each question item.
Institutional Subscription Support
If you are on site at your institution, you should be able to seamlessly access the site(s) of interest from any computer. If you are experiencing difficulty accessing a site, please contact your library's reference desk.
If you are off site, you can log in to our sites using just your My Access account, provided you previously created a My Access account while logged in to your institution’s network. If you haven’t established a My Access account, you will first need to log in to your institution’s network (instructions below) and then sign up for one. You can also gain access to our sites by just logging in through your institution, but establishing a My Access account is a more convenient method to view our sites remotely.
A majority of institutions use a proxy server to provide remote access to their users. To log in using a proxy server:
1. Go to your institution's library website.
2. Locate the databases or electronic resources page.
3. Locate the site you wish to access. When you click on it, you will be re-routed to your institution's proxy log-in page and asked for your institutional log-in credentials (often the same username and password you use to log into your computer or gain access to your institution's intranet, though log-in credentials vary by institution). Once you have logged in, you will be rerouted to the site.
Not all institutions use proxy servers, so if the instructions above do not apply to you, please contact your library reference desk to find out about remote access at your institution.
If you are having trouble logging into your My Access account, please contact Online Customer Service (by email at OnlineCustomer_Service @ mheducation dot com or by phone at 1-888-307-5984 [toll-free, U.S. only] or 1-614-759-3663 [outside the U.S.] between 8 AM and 5 PM Eastern Standard Time to confirm you have the correct username and password.
Methods of Access
The Easy suite of resources offers a full range of access options for institutions, including:
Institutional subscribers submit their network IP ranges to McGraw-Hill Medical during subscription setup. These ranges are verified and loaded into the system and all users coming from inside the range are automatically provided seamless access from any IP-authenticated computer.
Institutional subscribers can place registered links to our site(s) behind their secure login (for example, a library site that has already validated a student). The institution must register the domain and URLs where the links are placed with McGraw-Hill Medical during subscription setup. These links will then automatically and seamlessly log the user into the site(s) every time they are clicked.
Remote access to the Access resources via EZProxy requires EZproxy 2.4c GA (2004-03-21) or later combined with this database definition:
T [Insert Site Name]
U [Insert Site URL]
DJ [Insert Site Domain]
For example, the database definition for USMLE Easy would be as follows:
T: USMLE Easy
