There both equally good

What i do when it comes to qbanks is i try to understand the background to each question. If i get a question wrong, i usually write down the explanation as to why it's right. Then i read all the other explanations and understand as to why those options are wrong.

I swear if you do that for each and every question. You will notice things start to blend together and you tend to understand what the questions are trying to get at.

I think if you did uworld 3 times already, i would go ahead and give kaplan a shot. There are also qbanks like usmleRX and others out there you can try out. Do only one qbank at a time. do it at least twice and then switch to either uworld or usmleRX to review the concepts and test your usmle test taking skills.
