Most people say watching the videos + reading the notes will be enough to clear your concepts,. You need to focus more on FA + questions and take Kaplan videos and notes to get the concepts clear

Hey,

I just finished the 7 week prep course at the Washington dc center and I HIGHLY recommend kaplan for step 1 as review. The doctors who taught us were amazing, gave us heads up on all the high yield info. and it saves time. And most important, they motivate you. However I do advise that you call and ask who are the doctors teaching for the session that you want to sign up for.
If you want more infro or help just inbox me

I attended the 7 weeks course in Miami early 2014. thought that the Biochemistry and Microbiology lectures where excellent and helped me to highly increase my scores on those dispels. if your weakness are on those I definitely recommend it. the other lectures are excellent and I recommend it in general.
