Question Help to decide

Im an IMG from Spain who is planning to do the STEP 1 next year and I'm deciding wheter to do Kaplan or Falcon live 7-week review. The options are Houston-Kaplan or Chicago-Falcon, and as I don't know much about theme it will be awesome if anyone could give me some advice, or if anyone has done them already.

Falcon has the UWorld Qbank, but I think the lecture notes that kaplan have are better, besides I don't know if it's silly but the fact that the Houston-kaplan preparation is more or less at the same time that their courses at Chicago and NY make me think that maybe the best proffesor might be teaching there instead of Houston, and I dont like the city as much as Chicago (safer and all of that).

My point is, if I'm going to spend that much money, is it really worth it to do Kaplan instead of Falcon, or are they pretty much the same?

Thanks in advance, this is very important for me and I dont know what to do...

USMLEWORLD is a MAJOR part in prep for Step 1. Those lectures are to give a sort of foundation of what will be tested on USMLE.You're the one who decides at the end. But to get the most of either course, try to study on your own from some sources before starting. Good luck!
