diagnostic is the test that will estimate your score after you are done with the qbank (like UWSA but for kaplan)
Qbank is the regular question pool.

Let's see. Kaplan has some features for step 2 CK

1. Diagnostic test: Its purpose is to give you an idea of how are you before your preparation for the exam.

2. Qbank: The regular qbank, you use this to practice your questions.

3. Self-assessment exam (similar to UW): It is similar to the diagnostic test, but it gives you an idea of how is your performance.

Okay for both the diagnostic test and the self assessment features ,, Do they utilize questions from the regular Qbank pool .. or they have separate sets of Questions ???
