Listening Need an advice ,, UW alone or with Kaplan Qbank ?

Hi all ,,

I'm finish Ck preparation now ,, I used Kaplan off line Qbank (I know it was wrong from the start but that's what happened anyway ) I used 2007 version I guess ,,

My average score is 87% ,, So I need more practice

I thought in taking Kaplan online Qbank now and then USMLE World ,,

What do you think guys about this ,, should I go for Kaplan Qbank first (the 2001 version) or skip it and jump directly to USMLE World ???

I need your advice here ,,

Thanks all

Hello Dr-ahmed!

Certainly other students will weigh in, as many use more than one question bank for additional question practice. We recommend using fresh questions if possible, as re-using questions will inflate your scores thus skew your progress assessment. We do not recommend using an older Qbank, as the material won't be current and, if pirated, there is no guarantee of accuracy, completeness, etc. If your scores are currently 87% (taking timed tests of unused, random, mixed questions) then you are in good shape and may want to consider an NBME self-assessment exam:

Best of luck!!
