I think both Qbank are good but UW is better for learning and Kaplan for self assessment. If I were u I will do Kaplan Qbank now.

Arrow I think more qbanks is better than repeating a single qbank

In my personal opinion I think doing more qbanks is better than repeating the same bank no matter how good it is.

The idea is to get exposed to more and more concepts and to train yourself for the exam.

I think USMLE World (or any other qbank for that matter) should not be regarded as a textbook that you should repeat again and again to grasp the materials. Instead you should rely on USMLE review books and enforce them with qbanks.

If you have the time, perhaps doing kaplan Qbank and then repeating UW is wiser than just repeating UW without experiencing what Kaplan or other qbanks have to offer you.

Nevertheless, I will be adding a poll to your thread to see what other members think about your particular question.

Also, have a look at a related poll here

Definitely redo the questions you got incorrect on UW the first time around. Beyond that is your decision.
