Which one is harder ? UW or Board ?
 
Many of us prepare for USMLE Step 1 using USMLEWorld so for those who have experienced both please tell ...
Which one is harder ? UW or Board ?
Waiting for answers !

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!

For me I will take Step 2CK first !
Maybe much more better to take.

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.

That's a great poll, Thanks!

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

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.
