I did both Qbank from kaplan first and now I'm almost done with UW. If I will have to choose one it is definately UW, the ammount of stuff you learn in Uw doesn't compare at all with kaplan Qbank.
Re,member to plan your time to go through FA and UW notes before exam.
UW notes are a lot, well I'm basically dissecting UW. I have done notes in FA and in my notebook. I have a lot of stuff.
I'm almost done with UW and I'm taking a month to review FA and UWnotes and do more NBMES and UWSA2.
Hope this helps

simple is that KAPLAN Q bank is learning tool and uworld is your evaluation tool ... i think both have their own importance ...
