Kaplan Medical Kaplan CK Qbook versus Kaplan CK Qbank

Hi everyone ....

I have a confusion regarding Kaplan CK Qbook.

I got it with Kaplan CK Lecture Notes set. Is it similar to the Kaplan CK Qbank or different??

If Kaplan CK Qbook and bank are different when we should incorporate in study i,e Qbook early and bank later or vice versa?

At present I am done with IM and doing peds ....

I am having this doubt since many days and when I saw something similar post in step 1 forum I thought of posting my doubt in the CK forum.

Please kindly advise who have done both Kaplan CK Qbook and Kaplan CK Qbank.

Default The difference between Kaplan CK Qbank and Qbook

The Kaplan CK Qbook that is sold on Amazon is the same as the Kaplan CK Qbook that you get with Kaplan CK Lecture Notes.

The Kaplan CK Qbank and the Kaplan CK Qbook are entirely different and they don't feature the same questions.

It's recommended that you start with the Qbook along your readings and then when you finish your primary reading you moved to the Kaplan Qbank.

The Qbook, being a book, does not have features such as calculating your performance, comparing your scores to others, choosing subject-specific blocks, getting updates, and seeing teaching videos that accompany the answers and explanations.

Thank u so much for replying and correcting my thread.

Since I got it (Kaplan q book) i will do it along subject wise for 2nd reading.

I will start Kaplan CK Qbank after 2nd reading. And UW for last.

Am I correct in doing that??

What do u think Kaplan is before UW or UW followed by Kaplan in last i,e just before exam?
