    I've seen the threads on what Kaplan scores equate to when doing them the first time. Does anyone know what QBanks scores correlate to the second time through? What should a person be scoring to feel comfortable? I was scoring in the 60's mostly the first time through.

    I don't think a repeat runthrough has any prognostic value.

    Do you think it would be an exercise worth doing though? Here's what I'm thinking: 1) I'd still be going over my wrong answers and 2) some of the questions I took months ago and would probably not remember the answers to them. That should still help me improve my weak areas, correct?

    What about USMLE World's prognostic value? I seem to score higher on those tests by 5-10 percentage points than Kaplan for some reason.
