Kaplan Medical Is Kaplan qbank needed for CK?

I just started my prep I want to give my exam in about 4-5 months or so and I just finished step 1. I started with Kaplan surgery LN the first few chapters I found it pretty boring so I started doing the Kaplan CK Qbank. It's going okay except that I'm wondering if I need it or can I just directly do UW.
My plan initially was to do Kaplan LN (with lecture videos only for IM and OBGYN), MTB then kaplan qbank and THEN UW subject wise after each subject. Is kaplan qbank good and is it really required? should I do UW first and then kaplan? Thanks in advance! I'm aiming for 240+

In my view, Kaplan q bank is a good starter. I'm doing u world right now and having done Kaplan before has helped me a lot in making uworld easier. You can also refer to my thread on Kaplan q bank scores, for more info and reviews

Thanks. Do you think I need to go through kaplan LN as well or just read MTB before I start kaplan qbank? Which subjects do you suggest I do kaplan LN? Thanks in advance!

KLN notes for all subjects. Did not do MTB so I can't comment. Do one read before the bank

I think Kaplan LN are good for all subjects, and getting both MTB CK and step 3 books would be good. MTB CK is good for IM, while MTB for step 3 is good for other subjects as the CK one isn't as complete. I'd suggest you have them all, that'd make a comprehensive prep. Doing Kaplan Qbank now and UW later along with NBME would provide you the maximum chance of getting a higher score.
Good luck
