Default should I finish studying everything before...

Should I finish studying everything before starting to practice questions from a Qbnak (Kaplan/Uworld)...


should I do study and practice questions (subject wise) simultaneously.

[If money wasn't an issue I would be doing kaplan qbank as Im studying, while saving Uworld qbank for the 2nd pass aka reviewing segment before the exam. Since it's an issue which one of the above two choices you recommend I should go with].

I think studying AND doing questions at the same time is the way to go. You retain concepts faster and reduce your overall prep time. I haven't done my exam yet but If u must choose one, I'll say go with Uworld cos everyone on this forum says it's better. Best of luck!
