Dollar Sign Financial Trouble, Which Qbank to buy?

I am doing Kaplan notes and no question bank yet.
I plan to give a reading to notes then I'll buy a question bank and practice it.

I have financial problems as I am not working and I am dependent on my parents and it's quite embarrassing to ask parents for money at this stage of life so I can just afford one question bank.

Shall I buy kaplan or UWord?

Also, NBMEs, there are 6 forms, I just want to buy just 2 or 3 to check myself which one shall I go for?

its better to do both. I know its quite embarassing to keep asking for money from parents after u become a graduate. My suggestion would be to take both, as this exam is a one time shot, so do everything it takes.

But if u still want to choose one among them, i would say dont miss on UW.
