Help UWorld has information not in FA and Kaplan!

I have heard that kaplan only covers 30% of the material for the exam, and that uworld covers like 50-60% of the rest?

is this true? i have learned/memorized kaplan and FA but haven't started uworld yet, but am confused now that some of my friends are saying that uworld has many new things not given in kaplan and its like learning things you never knew before...

Default u world

Im not capable of answering your question.But having done U world I can say that you have to use u world as a learning tool. and a normal student will get around 65% of the questions correct on their first round of doing the questions.
but 65% is very subjective.
