i haven't finished mine yet but the quality of questions is very high. it is very similar to the NBME in every aspect, including percentage correct. it's not like uworld where you get used to missing 1/3 of the questions.

If you have time you should check them out, they sometimes come up with very tricky questions that will make you review certain high yield subjects.

The best advice is to have the online qbanks like Uworld or Qmax, and the Q&A books you can take wherever you go for quick question practicing. At least that is what I do.

If it doesn't hurt your budget and you have a good sized space in your calendar, go for it, totally.
I found it very hard, maybe because I only grabbed it when tired. My UWorld score was better.

I would recommend the phone/tablet version over the book form. The statistics and ease-of-use is invaluable.
