    I know MKSAP 5 just came out, but was hoping people could shed some light:

    Do MKSAP 4 and 5 overlap, i.e. have similar/identical questions?
    Or is it like MKSAP 3 vs 4, where everything is organized differently with differing questions?

    In other words, should I plan on doing MKSAP 3 & 5 only, or is MKSAP 4 still also useful?

    Well that's all fine and good, but how about somebody who's actually used both 4 and 5?

    Some overlap, but there is always some overlap with the questions.

    I don't know what you really want to know about it though. It is a question source. The vignettes are mostly on the longer side. Explanations are to the same detail as 4. There are only so many topics these things can cover.

    MKSAP 3 just sucked. 4 is much more in line with shelf type questions, although I like the uworld questions more.
