MKSAP5 is much easier than uworld. MKSAP is great for folks who just started studying for ck as the questions are easier and wont hurt your ego as fast as uworld would.

The absolute best bank for step 2 is always going to be uworld. But if you start with doing uworldfrom the very beginning and finish it, it'll be annoying to even consider using an inferior bank like MKSAP because you've been spoiled with uworld. Like riding 3rd class after riding first class.

So my point is, if you want to do some questions on MKSAP, then do that first before starting uworld. Because once you start using uworld there's no coming back. Mksap will definitely prepare you for the internal med nbme. Either way as long as you eventually do uworld u can't lose.
