Kaplan Q book
 
Does Kaplan Qbook really reflect the question like they´re going to be in the USMLE? I just did the physiology Q and was surprised how many formulas we're supposed to know (are we really?) as well as some Q which I'm not sure if they're helpful.

Yes, you are right
 
Kaplan is known for their extra stress on physiology and it's various equations.
The reason they do that is to solidify your physiology concepts which are essential for your exam prep.
But to answer your question, no you won't see these formulas or such level of details in the real exam. The physiology depth in Kaplan is beyond what's required for the real exam.

That´s a HUGE relief! I was kind of depressed. I mean, I studied Physiology to really understand the concepts, as I know these are really important. But those questions just throw me completely out of track.
Thanks for your answer!
