What is harder Qbank or USMLE World?
 
Hello Everyone.

I am curious to know what bank of questions is harder, Kaplan Qbank or USMLE World.

I have heard people say different things.

What do you guys think? :notsure:

I think Kaplan is more now
 
Trdaitionally people think that UW is more difficult but I think that recently Kaplan has become more serious therefore I vote for it in your poll.

I also recommend you read this great article here http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-ar...race-goes.html

Kaplan is getting more difficult
 
UW used to be harder but Kaplan recently has become amazingly difficult, they realized this issue :rolleyes:

UW is definitely way more difficult than Kaplan

I've just started USMLE World a few weeks ago and am amazed to find it easier than Kaplan - in fact it feels significantly easier. Perhaps this is just a distorted perception due to expectation (by everyone's opinion of how hard USMLE World is). I'm not sure if things have changed recently over at Kaplan, but I find USMLE World quite a bit easier. :notsure:

Good Question, Actually Qbank Kaplan is Harder, UW is easier.. I found it like that and a lot of friends of mine, even the Calculator out there in a lot of website, says that a score like 56% at Qbank Kaplan is 90+ and over UW its like 62% = 90+

The Question here is which is Harder... But it doesnt mean which is better... even that Qbank Kaplan is Harder, UW is better. Bottom line i would recommend both of those... As a lot of people say: UW is a MUST...


Hope it helps...

UWorld definite!

I haven't used the qbanks properly yet so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I've done about 40-50 questions from each bank just to get a sense of the style of the questions and to see how they ask questions.

The kaplan Qbank was killing me whereas I got almost perfect on the Uworld questions.

But 40-50 questions is a small sample size so maybe I just got some crazy questions from the qbank to skew my opinion.

where i can buy Uworld q bank book?? didn't find on internet....:notsure:

LatinGeorge 01-21-2012 03:45 PM

i think many people will vote for UW just because they did UW. Many people in this forum don't do Kaplan's Qbank..

Is not a book, is an online q bank. Check UWorld on google and go to the page and buy it.
