Help I've finished Kaplan Qbank... Now what?

Hello! I've just finished Kaplan Qbank, with an average of 67%. I'm planning on buying UWorld now to review with First Aid. I'm just wondering, is it worthy to keep doing Qbank in my spare time? I have a pretty good memory for past questions, so when I take new sessions, I score around 90%... What do you guys think? Thanks for your help!

have u done uw ? I think its essential to do questions, practice makes perfection and the test its all about question. If u know the answer because u got it wrong the first time try not to focused in marking the correct answer but to find clues in the question that leads u to the correct answer.

No, I'll start UW next... I remember the questions I got wrong, but I always read the explanations, so I know WHY I got them wrong and how to get to the correct answer. But I'm pretty sure the exam won't have the same questions as QBank, so I don't know how useful that'll be :/

I think you should start UWorld. If you have some spare time, sure you can go through some qs from qbank again or do qs from another source.

Well I think u should do uw is a great learning tool specially in some things that are not in the FA. the questions won't be the same but the pathology or presentation will, so u get an example of every way u can be asked about one particular pathology. Plus practicing with time is a must.

At the end is ur decision and ur money everyone learn in different ways
