Listening Is Kaplan Qbank easier than USMLERx?

I guess I'm shocked that for me Kaplan Step 1 Qbank is A LOT easier than UMLERx. I always heard it was suppose to be UWORLD>>>> Kaplan>> USMLERx.

However if I do a subject base exam in USMLERx I get maybe 60% and but in Kaplan its 70%.

Has this been anyone else experience?

@islandcrazy: Hmmm... Does usmleRx really strengthen FA concepts? I'm still trying to decide whether I'm going to get usmleRX ONline. I'm only going to use it for 7-10 days. Just for a quick run-through when I read FA again midprep... I'm doing uworld and kaplan qbank online. Is usmleRx worth the $99?? Or if it's only going to be for 10 days, should I stick to the offline version instead?

My exp is the opposite, 70% for Rx and 60% for Kbank. 70% is great for a K average score, btw.

@Path2012- Well that is a subject base average which I heard is suppose to be MUCH higher than if I did random because it doesn't really expose weak areas. Planning on doing some random timed blocks soon after I finish reviewing some of my weaker areas.

@d_wiqed- USMLERx does help memorize FA in a way that you can help intergrate it. Also I find it tests you on the details of some it facts for instance if the question is about a child with Down's Syndrome they would give you the fetal alpha-protein level instead of the saying the child was born with epicathanal fold so most people would go straight for neural tube defect.It tests the TINY and MINUTE details of FA.
