The question banks which are present online from kaplan, princeton or altius, is there a significant overlap between in their questions banks and their own practice tests ?

For instance is it worthwhile buying access to Kaplan Qbank, If we have already been through their 12 online practice tests ?

Similarly for Princeton or altius is it worth going through their question bank seperately if we already have done their practice tests , ?

I only have experience with AAMC QBs (UWorld doesn't offer practice tests, so your question doesn't apply to them), but I'd be shocked if any company recycled the same questions through different product categories, so it's worthwhile if you need more practice and like their content. Most people seem to like UWorld and AAMC for QBs, but YMMV.

I would also recommend using the AAMC QPacks over anything else, and then UWorld. While I don't think Kaplan will recycle questions from their FLs into their question banks, I would use other material just because all third party material is a bit different from the actual MCAT, and if you get too used to how Kaplan writes their questions, you might be in for a surprise when you start AAMC material.
