Hello, i took Center Prep, the questions in the center prep do NOT resemble anything like USMLE real questions, their target is to make you UNDERSTAND and APPLY the concepts, NOT make you feel like a USMLE-like test.
So that depends on how strong your basics are, if your basics are strong i dont think you need those questions.

Correct Answer

you are welcome!
well i took Kaplan Qbank and it helped me a lot reinforce my concepts and pacing myself with the questions and time, and the questions really make you think deep which helps you getting use to USMLE-like real questions (2nd order 3rd order questions)
of course the best qbank out there is uworld hands down, but if you want to do Kaplan before uworld i think its the best approach i got those recommendations from my fellow friends that already did the test with high scores.
of course i havent written the test yet, so i cannot speak for myself, but lets see how i do and if these were good recommendations (i hope)

good luck!

also! if you have time to finish kaplan qbank thats great but if you dont, DONT insist on finishing it and wasting time on it, only 50-60% is adviceable, then do NBME see your score and if its more than 210 move on to uworld which is the most important to spend your time on.

also i thought that center prep came with the Qbank?
at least mine came with that, i bought the deluxe prep though, probably that is the difference.
