Listening Falcon more helpful in preparation then Kaplan? Or Kaplan?

I did a course with Falcon but i'm scoring around 50% in Uworld. I'm thinking now that maybe Kaplan might have been better? Any feedback? Did anyone do both? Which one helped more?

Default Falcon helpful?

For what it is worth, one of my classmates took the Falcon live-in type course this past year and pulled out one of the highest scores in the nation. In fact she was close to the all-time step 1 record score (that has been documented).

She is an IMG (carib), also very smart. So whether people think Falcon sucks or not, she will tell you what she told me... its the amount of effort you put into it. I also personally saw her doing Uworld questions for at least 6 months prior to finishing 2nd year and taking the review course.

As for the course itself, she did say the days are too long but often finished earlier than scheduled. Also that the homework assignments were ridiculous and no one ever did them all because they were a huge time suck.

Good luck on Step 1!
