USMLEWorld U world or free questions?

Hi, I found http://www.wikitestprep.org/ a web page with free questions and http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/webpath.html.

I woul like to know if I should invest time on those or just do Uworld? I have done UW in the past, and I'm afraid I'm gonna remeber some of the questions.

Thanks.

Wikitestprep is outdated and does not reflect the current exam status.
WebPath is wonderful and very useful.
If you have done UW before then there's no point in doing it again! Do something else, such as Kaplan or USMLERx.

I liked wikitestprep as well. DoctorF is right, its only ~700d questions. It is well worth doing in my honest opinion (IMHO). Of course, doing any question bank is worth doing.

The other plus side, its free! A medical students favorite word, besides "pass" of course

I disagree 700 questions in 1.5 days!

Being able to do the 700 questions in one and a half day is an outright proof that the question quality is not that good.

I agree that why not to do more questions specially when they come free but such banks should never substitute the big brothers (Kaplan and UW).

That's my opinion about it.
