    I used OnExamination for third year and it was good. The app is incredible and lets you just sit there and do some questions during some downtime. It's 'Work Smart' feature or whatever it's called picks questions based on your current achievement, so if you're having a bad day it will make all the questions a little easier or if you're answering everything easily it will make them harder, and then put in questions that you've got wrong before to help you learn stuff. Never tried the other 2 so can't compare though.

    I'm a big fan of passmedicine. I found it was very similar to the types of questions in my exam. It's very guidelines and management based. There's also a huge textbook thing on there where you can search for different conditions.

    I think a lot depends on which are most similar to your university's questions so I would suggest speaking to those in years above you to gauge this. As MrsHamster mentioned, PassMed is guidelines-based which is helpful for my school, whereas the other two had more questions about physiology or biochemistry which we don't get tested on at all. It also has good notes which I have used to look things up even for finals. You might also want to consider cost. The lack of an app didn't affect me much as it has a mobile page which is very easy to use. I think there have been a few threads like this on TSR, so might be worth a search if you haven't already done so.

    I've never used pass medicine so can't help with your question about difficulty, but I have used onexamination and pastest - I would always go for on examination even though its more expensive, I just find it a really good resource.

    The impression I had was that OnExamination was better for clinical 'what is this' questions, perhaps targeted at earlier years. Passmedicine seems better for later years and following guidelines on investigations and management, and has a lot on side effects and drug interactions.
