UW is more difficult

UWorld is harder than the real board in many aspects, such as longer blocks and more twisted ideas.
However, I think it's a good idea to practice with something "Harder" than the exam so that you'll be at ease on judgment day!

Hey forum,
your profile is showing that you've taken step 1, so why do you ask this question :confused:

they are both quite difficult, but in a different manner; the real exam is close in concept and format to NBME. Whatsoever, uworld is far the best qbank to take for educational purposes.

I think that the real exam is harder than UWorld because of the psychological stress associated but in reality UW questions could be harder.

The real exam is harder than UW not because it's really harder but because of the stress that you have on that judgment day

Kaplan Qbook is easy

YES PLEASE. I WANNA know that too. plus which one is harder?

questions from the Qbook or the real exam?
Well the poll is saying the real exam is more difficult than UW but I think this is because of the stress of the exam itself not because of the real difficulty.
As for Kaplan Qbook, it's very easy and it's nothing compared to the actual exam.
