USMLE Books How is PreTest any good for the prep. ?


For those of you who've tried these series of books, PreTest, particularly biochemistry and genetics, are they helpful for the prep. ?
I have looked at some questions and found them tough a bit specially the genetics section.

Is there some similarity between these Qs and the ones on the USMLE exam ?

To put in other words, how do you rate the difficulty of the Qs in this book among other Qs like in qbank, UW, NBME and the real exam ?

Or maybe I find PreTest Qs tough because I am bad at genetics.
