Default Q banks versus the real deal from recent test takers

Hey,

I want to know how the Q-banks compare to the real deal. I want to know from recent test-takers who took the step 1 in the past 6 months. If you can elaborate on each Q-banks (Uworld, UsmleRX, Kaplan) and how they compare to the real deal, it would be further appreciated.

Thank you,

Thank you,
uworld is no doubtly the best qbank.. and que much more similar to the real ones.
I didn't find Qbooks much useful.. I had Kaplan Qbook but the questions were not that good..
after uworld you can go for USMLERx or Kaplan if you want more practice..
Solving more questions is better.

all the best..
atlast many ques in exams will be solved by logic..
