Default How many questions to practice?

How many questions do we need to practice before we can take Step 2 CK?
Most of my friends fall in the range of 2000 to 3000

How about You?

There's no number that present a threshold
the more you do the better
If you can do 100000 questions then it's better than 5000

It's not only the quantity but also the quality
Someone who has done 1000 high yield questions would score higher than someone who has done 5000 low yield questions

Speaking of this
I think USMLE World and Kaplan Q banks are still the highest yield banks so far

I've seen several friends hitting on CK with qbanks only.
They did not read Kaplan, FA, or any other book. Only qbanks.
Usually the target is 5000 questions before safely entering the CK exam

is QBANKS sufficient for giving the exam??
i have seen in this forum that many have been recommending to just do UWORLD qbank...do we need to add kaplan qbank too??
i have about 3 months for the exam...i am kinda confused..

USMLE World is more than enough my dear. You don't need to do the Kaplan Qbank.
