Am afraid I can't understand your question.
Qbank is a term that refers to question banks usually online question banks. Both Kaplan Medical and USMLEWorld call their online question database as qbanks.
However, USMLERx for example calls it Qmax.
My personal opinion is that you should do both of them (Pirated print editions have several disadvantages like not being up to date and difficult to monitor your performance score ...etc).okay doc. lets talk it your way doc, i have few friends using printed form of questions both from kaplan n usmle-world,however if we talk about the online questions then you suggest that both kaplan and usmle-world questions should be done or just one of em.hope am able to convey it to you???,
i am reading this book and its not bad at all. In Step 1 most of the questions are "fact based" so simple recall helps - people expect the same of FA 2CK as well that all the "HY facts" will be there. But its more of a condensed review. Afterall people taking the test create the book on recent HY stuff.. so always worth it.I am sure this has been brought up before many times but still, how important is first aid for step 2 ck? I mean its really really helpful in step 1, is it as good for step 2? Also which edition? I heard that 7th edition is really good unlike all the previous ones, so is there really such a huge difference?
OK, so after checking these threads and reading ur comment i've decided that i will probably do both Kaplan and U world Q banks BUT my real dilemma is which to start with .... i know that U world is harder and one of my friends that did step 2 CK recently tells me that the educational objectives in U world made up at least 75% of her knowledge and so i thought i start with U world and write down as much as needed of the objectives and then do Kaplan Q bank BUT i'm scared that having done Kaplan bank more closer to the exam i might go in a bit weaker since the Kaplan questions r said to be easier than the real exam ....SO please help .... bare in mind that i plan to do the NBME last before the exam ...!!!! HELPMy personal opinion is that you should do both of them (Pirated print editions have several disadvantages like not being up to date and difficult to monitor your performance score ...etc).
But better than my personal opinion is these threads;
You may start a new thread (with a poll) asking our members what do both or only one of them
