I agree

One week is wayyyyyy too less I think. You see kaplan qbank has some 2300 question and uworld has 2077. Each test can have a maximum of 46 questions. So imagine doing that in a week! You might be able to pull it off by taking loads and loads of tests, but then you won't get to review the explanation which is the whole point.

Generally I have seen alot of people preferring uworld over kaptest qbank.
