Kaplan Medical Kaplan CK Qbank or Kaplan CK Qbook?

I have a question, is it better to get a Kaplan CK Qbank subscription or do the Kaplan CK Qbook provided with the second reading of Kaplan CK lecture notes before starting u world?
Thank you

The Kaplan Q book brings 17 tests of 50 questions. Every test is of an specific subject, I mean not mixed questions.

What I do is I use both. The book when I dont have internet or my laptop. Sometimes I just do 10 Qs before I go to bed or when I wake up. Sometimes I use it when Im finished with a subject.

But the Q bank I use it in an organized way. One test of 44 questions every day. Mixed and timed.

Doing questions in a timed maner is really important. But I dont time myself with the book.

Im doing UWorld after Im done with Kaplan Q bank. I have heard is way better. And to be honest Im a little dissapointed with Kaplan. The Qbank for step 1 was way better.
