I am also doing online Kaplan Q bank with my second read...which I think is helping me a lot....So after finishing my second read I am going to buy a 2 month subscription of online Uworld and do it with my fast 3rd read and FA...Right now my Kaplan average is aroung 50% , hopefully that will rise to 60 or above cos most of the people say that Kaplan is more difficult than UWorld...

Last word...FA and Uworld are must for Step 1.

DIT is not vital n i think its overrated. I would rather get a study partner than paying them so much for just reading from first aid. Even u get offline, i don't think its great

Guys I too have exam in nov.
I am doing Kaplan qbank offline and mostly reviewing my weak subjects.
thinking to do kaplan qbank till month end and then do you world till the exam date. may be 2 times.

While i am doing kaplan offline. Some questions seems really weird to me. Most of time i am getting 45-55%. ya its random mode and i didn't did B.S. yet.
but do everyone think kaplan qbank is kinda weird or i am just doing bad in this.

Why i am doing UW from next month
bcoz i am weak in micro and biostats. So i am thinking to do UW offline 2007 for these 2 subjects before starting UW. Is it right? and ya i am doing UW as learning tool.
any suggestion is welcomed.

Is Nov too close to be doing Kaplan qbank?

I was also planning i'd be ready for November but still haven't started any qbanks. Was planning on starting them next month.

How many questions can be done per day? Should I completely skip RX and qbank and go straight and directly to UW if I want 250+?

Is there any correlation between the Kaplan Qbank score and the exam score? What should an average score be? 60% okay?

Default What i Think!!!

check forums... people who get high scores from 260 and above didn't just stick to uw they did massive amount of q's from all q banks including rx, kaplan, consult and did all the nbme's 1-13 thatz my plan i may not give it in november but i still think there's enuf time cuz november is 2months + away.. so i'll still say give kaplan a finish learn all you can learn and move to uw, and if u still have time u can chip in rx. it all depends on what you want for yourself!!!!
