Question Uworld transition from Kaplan

How was the transition from Kaplan to UWorld? I've been hearing its a bit rough due to question structure differences and that the level of difficulty on UWorld is much more harder than Kaplan Qbank.

The new Kaplan Qbank is not easier than UWorld. I did it the other way around... I did 1000 questions in UW, and then did 1000 questions in Kaplan... and I occasionally swap back and forth between the two. There's definitely a difference in terms of the quality of question writing and answer explanations, but for me, it wasn't dramatic enough to produce any "transition" symptoms.
