Can someone please tell me which question bank is better to start, UsmleRx or Kaplan question Bank? I have heard that usmle Rx has changed their Q bank and the new one is better than Kaplan.

I am on my first reading right now and want to supplement it with the q bank.

Thanks.

Its your first reading definitely go with kaplan qbank coz it has got very good explanations and short video also(kaplan teachers teaching concept)
there r few to no mistakes in kaplan qbank

on the other hand usmlerx has mistakes.plus structure of questions has serious defects.also explanations are not good n very short.

usmlerx may be good to learn FA (cramming)but it will not strength your concepts kaplan will(atleast more than usmlerx).and i feel cramming FA has no use till u know the application behind facts of first aid.

kaplan qbank also has its flaws lil bit.some qs are too difficult.Qs on very minute details .but here Uworld come into play which is absolutely awesome and flawless.

just my opinion.

P.S i have completed kaplan qbank once also uworld once .doing usmlerx (25% complete) and stopped doing usmlerx.

i had thought the same ,to do FA with kaplan qbank and wanted to finish in one month.so ended up finishing kaplan qbank in one month without reading first aid :D.

so i think 1.5 month or 2 months are enough for first aid + kaplan qbank.

so u guys recommend usmle consult over RX? or what?
other than kaplan qbank and uworld ,the quality of other qbanks cannot be trusted.there may be wrong concepts and mistakes.so caution.

if u have time then choosing usmlerx or consult either will not make a big difference if u see the big picture.

but i guess doing kaplan qbank nicely and uworld (almost 2 times) will take many months .if u want more Qs then go for many nbmes and 2 UWSA tests.

just my opinion.Gluck
