Kaplan Medical Difficult Kaplan Questions

Hi guys,

am new here

I can see that qs at the end of each chapter of Kaplan lecture notes are very difficult! so twisted and often confusing

What's going on, am I so stupid

Is the qbank the same?

Is the real USMLE exam the same?

Don't worry, you are not alone. I find them extremely hard too. But when I do Qbanks, the questions are not that hard, only a few are though. I think the questions at the end of the KLN LN is more for you to grasp the concept, the idea. If you can understand them, then you can understand easily other questions.

Kaplan and UW questions tend to be harder than the real exam. I think this is because of inherent issue in commercial services as they tend to show off and to prove to us that they can make really difficult and mind squeezing questions.

In reality, the exam is bit easier and more straight forward.

So I agree with lemontea88, don't worry about it
