    I think I know the answer that will come from this crowd of loyal USMLE world fanatics, but I would appreciate an honest comparison.

    Which is better as a question source to supplement First Aid for CK?

    USMLE World or the Kaplan QBook (not Qbank)
    I liked the QBook for Step 1 as much as I liked QBank.
    The book has something like 800+ questions

    Any thoughts?

    USMLE world > qbook
    But I don't see any reason why you couldn't do both. Qbook can be knocked out in like 2 days if you need to. I did the following qbook sections while I was on that rotation. Come review time I just did the questions I got wrong in qbook over again and world. Did ok if you take into comparsion how much time I took to prepare for step 1.

    I would agree that UW is better than Q-BOOK.
    However, I think that Q-BANK is better than UW!
