if ur around 70's or above... ur in perfect shape,,, just be sure to do the uworld after kaplan,,, dont go to the test with only kaplan

the question are harder than the exam and more picky and ask for lots of details in subjects like micro,,,, but the exam has longer questions and require more thinking,,, better critical thinking

good thing about kaplan qbank is that it makes u memorize things good

dont worry about it, good luck
i'm so bad i make medicine sick,
Imma show you how great i am

you wont know if you're in "good shape" or not until you take an nbme, they are the only real indication of what shape your in.

regarding which qbank is most like the exam, answer: Uworld.

is 70% a good score in kaplan? yes.

does that mean you will score well on nbme and in UW? probably.

but you wont know until you take an nbme.
