I agree - do both. Kaplan's qbank is worth finishing - it is a good bank and you will learn a lot of things from it - uworld is to be used more as a textbook than as a resource to gauge how much you know.

I think a lot of people are saying that the exam difficulty is comparable to Kaplan, while UWorld is more difficult than the real thing. If I were you I'd go with UWorld, it supposedly has better explanations, and I would rather do something that's more difficult than delude myself with a easier Qbank.

i dont have enough time to do 2 q banks .....so which q bank shall i go with ?
somehow my personal fav is kaplan q bank not because it's lil bit easy but because questions are pretty conceptual and i learn from my mistakes while doing kaplan.in u world most of the times questions seem so out of the box that even after reading the explanations i feel as if question was not conceptual but a trick question.still do both of them for peace of mind!!!

Most people do it the other way, but I think either way is fine. As long as you cover the material from both banks and look at the explanations you'll be fine...
