Question Kaplan QBOOK or USMLERx???

Background Info: I'm an IMG who is about begin studying and am following the ZUMZUM method.


So I'm confused on something.. According to ZumZum Method (which was based on 2009) He said to purchase the Kaplan QBook and do that book after each subject and then do the Kaplan Qbank after studying all subjects and then UWorld and NBME before the exam.

But I was researching a little and the Kaplan Qbook hasn't been updated since like 2008. (6th edition and 4th edition are identical!). The Kaplan Qbank is up to date with questions they normally ask though.


Now my question to you guys is, what should I do?

A. Purchase Kaplan Qbook and use it anyway

B. Instead of doing Kaplan QBank after all the subjects just do it as a substitute to Kaplan Qbook.

C. Purchase another Qbank (Not Uworld) such as USMLERx and use that instead of the Kaplan Qbook after I study each subject.

Definitely Rx. Kaplan tests a bunch of extra stuff which may be nice to do, but not at all necessary for the boards. Rx is more close to what the Boards is going to test. And I think saving UWorld until the end is a good idea!

We have a discount code for USMLE-Rx at my school. It's valid through 6/5/14 (tomorrow!) and the code is SUNYDOWNQMAX1 which is good for a 1 year subscription for $99. It's originally $200, so I'd say it's a steal!
