I haven't done the exam yet...im scheduled on june 5....i was in the same dilemma and asked around some of my friends.
I did usmle consult after i did bad in uworld( ended up 55% with lots of stupid mistakes ).

Usmle consult is a nice qbank that is worth trying and its price is really great 2 months for 115$ with their own assessment! It helps u with the small little concepts that u might forget and also introduces some weird WTF nbme like questions and the questions are short like the nbme assessments. It gives u a great peds,psych,derma and ecg cardio question practice...the rest of subjects are also covered nicely...Hematology was tough but i needed it as it was my weakest subject. The explanations are from elsevier books could be very detailed sometimes but its nice to read( covers the whole topic rather than just a certain concept like uworld). You get to see many questions with microscope images,ecgs,ct and xrays.

The great thing about that qbank as well is that it points out ur strengths and weaknesses in each block u solve like ur prinicples of management, pathophysiology and mechanisms of diseases, diagnosis ,...the same way as an nbme assessment report does.
I finished it with 70% cumulative and got back to uworld again and started getting 68% and above in blocks i do these days. In my opinion i think its a mix of uworld and rx ( the best of both worlds).

after usmleconsult go directly to uworld...i tried kaplan but didn't like very long questions with weird low yield concepts.

Thank you.
I have did 50% of usmleconsult and stopped it then moved to kaplan qbank which I have finished 50% in comparison consult is less peculiar but with good questions my overall impression is that its a kaplan like bank or wanna be kaplan. usmlerx from my step 1 is not worth it I dont know about CK but from what I recall my overall was 80% not realistic at all ,the in comparison to my step 1 kaplan which was 73%, UW 76%
