Kaplan qbank should be done with 2nd read. If you are not in a rush then rx can be done after first aid after second read of Kaplan. I wouldn't advice skipping Kaplan q bank.

Kaplan has a superb question bank. Once you complete it, you then can venture to USMLE world question bank.

Best of luck

Are you going to do both of them at the same time? Have you gone over all of FA?

Well,not really.. But I am going to do it side by side, I mean after completing each system/discipline and then, in the end, randomly/all disciplines... Also, the q bank has only 2 options, either for 1 month or 12 months... And Rx has a difference of only 50 dollars between 3 months and till you pass subscriptions, so, I think it's better to do both of them side by side with the completion of systems/disciplines with till you pass subscriptions... Right??
