Question What is the point of a Qbank?

Ok so i know that everyone says to do a qbank, as I will also be doing, but no really asks as to what exactly are you supposed to get out of it?

is it that the qbank points out certain areas of greatest importance that you will most likely encounter on exam day? or is it just there to give you a feel for the types of question pattern being asked on the test? or to point out your weakness areas?

ps--I will begin with the qbanks and so i wanted some info on how best to utilize them...Thanks
