Why don't you fill out that gap with the Kaplan QBank?
I realized that some things that were not mentioned once in USMLE world QBank are very well covered and explained in Kaplan QBank

That's the way I did it. Did it exactly like you, had 6 weeks to the test afterwards. Did the Kaplan QBank then, worked out well finally.

I can only speak for myself. I did it the way I wrote above, it worked out very well for me. If you have too many concerns, extend your USMLE world period.
