Kaplan Medical Kaplan QBank questions


I have currently been preparing for my step 3 with MTB Step 3 and have recently started doing Kaplan QBank. I do plan to do UWorld next month.

I have noticed that some of the questions in the Step 3 QBank seem very basic compared to the questions that i have seen for Step 2CK, also many questions (but not all) are considerably shorter in length and finally there are only about 900 questions in total, which is significantly less than what i have come to expect from the previous 2 steps.

So i guess my question is, why the dramatic difference? Are the questions in Kaplan QBank reflective of the actual exam like in Step 2CK? or are there better practice tests out there that i should be spending my time on?

Please advise, thank you!
