Kaplan Medical Kaplan Assessment after each chapter or after all subjects!

Can anybody give me an idea how to make good use of Kaplan prep tests for step 1 at the Kaplan center.
Either to do those questions after each chapter? or after completing all subjects?
Which one to go with?

Most of my friends like to complete a full subject before doing questions because they feel this way its a good review when you're done and it's a good way to see what you have retained.

I however prefer to do one topic (ex: Renal Phys) and then do questions right after to see how much I learned and to fill in empty spots right away while the info is still fresh.

Angry should I trust the result of the Subject Assessment tests?

I did the Pathology Assessment test after the first read of Goljan and I got 78%. The evaluation told me to stop reviewing for this subject and begin with another one. Before that I had done the Q bank, first time, timed, subject based and got ~55%. So I am confused! How should I continue learning Pathology because most of the time I can distinguish what is right and wrong but without reading the answer choices I can't tell the answer?

since u did q bank before doin assessment test, probably that helped u improve ur perfomances. if u r done reading all subjects,i think u should test urself with uworld.
