OK, so it been known to everyone

That Kaplan qbank is studied subject wise meaning after finishing studying each subject or combining 2 or 3 subject you solve Kaplan qbank to see your progress.

and UW after finish studying all the subject to use it as preparation for the exam..

So for each one of the 2 how many months do you think is better to subscribe in each one?

Note:
In this poll you can check two options because we are talking about 2 subscriptions so choose one for each Kaplan and UW.

Please to be answered by people who already took the exam

Nice poll, athman!

I first used UW for 2 months. It was frustrating, being my first qbank to do (although I had done Kaplan Qbook), but the explanations were very thorough and very useful. I learned a lot from them, and wrote down notes (I had over 1000 HY notes from UW).

After that I used Kaplan Qbank for 1 month. The questions were easier, still useful, and more like the actual exam, but the explanations weren't that good. Of course, my scores in Kaplan were higher than in UW, because UW had trained me well.

What I want to say is that UW is truly a very good learning tool and much better than Kaplan in this regard. So I'm not sure if you should start UW before Kaplan, but you may consider that.

It really depends on which one you start first.
The first one you do need like 2-3 months and the second one you do usually one month is enough.

So far
1 VS 2 months for Kaplan QBank
2 VS 3 Months for UW

in my opinion

1Month Kaplan QBank
2Month UW

man UW for 3 months is soooooo long

1 or 2 for Kaplan QBank is ok but if one has a schedule like ZumZum he would schedule for 3 months

i was like this but i did reorganize my schedule and now i am still confuse between 1 or 2 month for kaplan

but for UW for sure it is going to be 2months

keep the race going guys

thank for awesome replies

i think people should do both qbanks, there both really are very very good... usmle rx is also another qbank which is good for practicing test like situations.
