First Aid FA Q&A derived from USMLERx!

Hello
I have the FA Q&A Book
I was wondering if it is a part from the USMLERx questions?? Or they are lower quality as are the Kaplan qbook compared to Kaplan qbank?

Good question... Actually, I also have the same book and I have the same question. I've done some questions and I think that the book is okay.

Unfortunately they are the same questions. I started off doing the Rx questions from the bank and then was planning on doing the qbook only to discover they are the same. Clearly the book has less questions but I think they picked the most non-repetitive HY questions from the bank and put in the book. For instance in the book you may only get 1 dorsal column question but there are maybe 10 dorsal column questions in the qbank. However there may be no Charcot- Marie questions in the qbook but several in the bank. In the end the qbank is much better than the book about hammering questions.
