Default couple q's on kaplan qbank and length of their videos/notes

Hi I am trying to plan my study schedule now. Can anyone tell me how many total hours the full kaplan video course is... not the HY which is like 45hrs? I will use it alongside the full lecture notes. I have a few months preparation time available.

I am already doing UW but while I was reading the kaplan stuff, I was thinking of doing the qbank online after each section. Does anyone know if there is any conflicting info with the management/diagnosis between UW and kaplan qbank? I know everyone has a negative feelings of kaplan's qbank with nitpicky details and irrelevance but hoping to hear from some who actually did the entire bank with UW.

already doing the kaplan books with the videos and it's taking me a whole day + to finish just a chapter along with the videos. i'm doin it for internal medicine now bcoz the exam is 80% of it, don't kno if i can keep up with the rest of the subjects ((e.g ob gyn, peds, surgery etc.)...

but i figured if i'm able to withstand the torture with IM i can as well give little room for the rest of them.

oh about the q banks sorry can't comment on that. but everyone says UW is the gold standard..

but question though, after going through a chapter in kaplan and you attempt UW how do you perform on it does it improve?
