Default Kaplan Qbank worth doing before starting UW?

I'm almost done with the first read of Kaplan though I don't remember much to be honest. I plan to do MTB 2 + 3 right after and start UW after that.

Should I get Kaplan Qbank before starting UW? Thanks.

I agree with poster above me. A lot of ppl don't like kaplan qbanks because it's too detailed/complicated/viciously tricky in the pattern that is unlikely to show up in real exam.

And Kqb hit you brutally. The point is to make you feel like you haven't study that well so you will be dilligent in your studies. I benefit from Kqb in terms of getting used to long Q stem, real exam q length is nearer to kqb. I also benefit from difficult concepts.

Usually after you're done w kqb you will see significant improvement on your uw qbanks. If you still have plenty of time, there's no harm to do the kqb. If your time is tight, just focus on uw.
