dear smita, don't be discouraged for the following reasons:
1- you've only done 3 blocks and it's too early to judge
2- think of q banks as a learning tool, not as an assessment tool
3- kaplan q bank is known to have many low yield concepts, so 60% is actually pretty good

so keep soldiering on, i would say don't take as many notes from kaplan as you normally would with uw. good luck and soldier on
