I don't really see the need to do them since the questions in there aren't as good as the past papers and they take forever. Has anybody gotten good grades with no textbook questions?

Textbook questions are literally just past paper questions that have been grouped by chapter.
So for example if you’re learning about diseases, all the questions in that section are about diseases.

So I think you’ll find they are actually as good as textbook questions bc they’re the same thing.

There is no harm in doing the textbook questions. If you feel confident with a topic then move on to past paper questions. Sometimes, the questions in the textbook ARE taken from past papers.

So why bother asking the question? It doesn’t seem like anyone can change your mind. Don’t do them if you don’t want to.

I'm just indecisive. I'm asking because I want to know if there is some benefit from your own experiences

There is not a definite answer as it can depend on the person. I would say do give them a try just to check your knowledge and understanding. If you are finding them too long/boring or too easy and you are getting the right answers, it shows that you have a good understanding of the topic. In that case, I would say you should move on past paper questions. So maybe for each chapter try a few of the questions from the book, you are not bound to do all of them and it's good to have practice from a variety of different sources. So just do some from the book and then move onto past papers.

I haven't done a single textbook question, only exam questions and I've done well!
The questions you get in textbooks are mainly to test your knowledge and understanding which is only a small fraction of the types of questions you'll get in an exam paper.
