    Anybody have any information on which is better for step II CK? I know USMLEWorld is cheaper but I am more familiar with Kaplan since I used it for Step I.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    i have both and like usmle world alot better. i have never liked kaplan but cant help myself from trying them. i didnt like them for step1 either as i thought elselvier's questions were better and more appropriate. kaplan's questions are too specific or difficult which creates fear which makes you more dependent on their material.
    :smuggrin:good luck !!!!

    Used Kaplan's for both, since I was already familiar with it and had done well on step one. If I had to do it again, I'd use UW based on price!

    USMLE world is much better. The Qbank has very easy questions or very difficult question. In usmleworld, the question are more balanced!
