I did Q banks one by one. I read MTB 2 all. Others books just read only my weak areas. I think kaplan you can skip. But Rx and UW were useful. And if you have time than go through Robbins pathology q bank.
Good luck!

congrats on your excellent score.
I need some insight doing USMLE RX q bank. How much your average on rx and how u did it. I initially was doing ok upto 35 percent of the bank. But then my I started getting really hard qs . then I realized , initially they gave all me all the easy and medium difficult qs and now I am getting all the hard qs and most of them I felt very low yield and difficult to solve. I reset the q bank now reading FA page by page and doing only hard qs.

Did u got the similar experience , please share your expeience

Congrats on a great score! I see that you used RX. I subscribed to USMLE Rx as well because I wanted to practice doing more questions. However, RX has a lot of serious discrepancies including typos. So far I have came across at least 8-10. Today I had a question about Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy that stated the murmur decreases on standing/valsalva while the opposite is true. Was that an issue for you? Seeing these type of serious mistakes has made me wary of doing this qbank. It helped me for Step 1 but I I don't find it reliable for Step 2.

When I was using RX I safe qs for the simulated exams on which I got 80% lately
Also I was using q bank by system, so it was not random qs, it helps me to memorize the concepts.
good luck

I think RX was helpful for me , also I find useful old kaplan q book , more than online kaplan q bank.
On real exam I have several EKG which is mostly covered by UW , so it is difficult to say which q bank better. In my opinion using three q banks was useful because it cover all concepts for CK.
Good luck

I was using from the beginning of my prep kaplan online but I was so stress out bse my score was like 58%
I guess I solve from 50 to 250qs per day and it was depending what level difficulties were qs.
Than I decided start with UW where score was 68% I did first run and than another run on incorrect qs and weak areas. Along with Uw I was using RX just by system , but I safe most of qs for simul exam in RX .
I took all clinical medicine forms on NBME and did similated exams on RX and later on UW.
Good luck
