Use Kaplan Qbank, subject wise, only High yields. If you have the time for everything go ahead.

But do UW at least 2 months before the exam, random mode.

do everything first...
when ur done with about 50% of the questions.. concepts start repeating and ur percentage goes up


then if u have the time.. set out about 4-5 days.. n go over only the HIGH YIELD questions again.

yeah i agree, if you have the time go for it. If you don't go with the high yield, i think its up to 65% or maybe a bit more of the qbank.


After you are done with kaplan, you'll find UW much easier (at least i think so), because they are a bit more straightforward than kaplan. I think kaplanqbank makes them more complicated to be able to teach more concepts.

When you do UW, you'll see what i'm talking about. Anyways, Good luck.
