Smile Kaplan closer to nbme than uworld?

Has anyone noticed that the Kaplan qbank questions are more similar to the NBME questions than UWORLD? Uworld uses the same software as the real thing, but I noticed the actual questions itself have been more similar between kaplan and the practice nbmes than uworld and the nbmes. Uworld covers more of the major concepts in my opinion, but the style that kaplan writes their questions felt closer to the nbme exams I've taken.

Can anyone comment on whether they felt kaplan qbank or usmle world qbank questions (not software) were closer to the real thing?

I postponed my exam so I have a good 5 weeks now to really bring my score up from a 213. If you have any tips on test taking skills that would be awesome as well.
