Since Qbanks questions aren't really indicative of the real thing, and there are very good path questions out there (e.g., robbins review), while a relative paucity of equivalents for the other subjects, I was thinking about using QBank for everything but Path - good or bad idea?

use kaplan qbank for everything non-path, and then use kaplan qbank for path as well. It's fine for path, especially pathophys.

It's like when football analysts spend an hour talking about a football game where the winning team turned the ball over once and the losing team had seven turnovers. It would be a lot easier to just say "well turnovers were the difference today", but that only takes a few seconds and there is tons of time to fill.

Likewise, it only takes a few seconds to say "go over first aid pretty well and do lots of kaplan q-bank", so to fill all the other talk people come up with 50 different review books/question banks for 15 different areas of the test.

it is better to read first pathology q bank and then to do kaplan q bank for all subjects. and if u finish all of them, it is better to do pretest series. and pretest series are available for a few subjects

An interesting idea, but since you're paying for them you may as well use them... They're not that bad. I suppose if your schedule is really tight this could be a good way to go.
