Kaplan Medical New Changes to Kaplan 2012 Lecture Notes

So I have the 2010 videos and PDFs and I have the 2012 hard copy Kaplan Lecture Notes.

After watching some videos I was wondering why they didnt follow the book only to realize that the notes have some changes.

The embryo has some editing done and the anatomy is changed up a LOT!... lot's of toipcs left out and new clinical topics added in.

Now I'm having a dilemna as to which version to use.

I kind of like the 2011 version because it has large headings to help organize stuff, whereas 2012 is more condensed.... but I'm thinking they changed the 2012 books for a reason and there must be important changes.

So far I did physio which was the same, I started anatom and it was veryy different from 2010, not sure about the 2011 version.

I'm very OCD about what book I use, I spent about the last 3-4 hours just comparing my anatomy 2010 pdf to my 2012 anatomy book. I ended up doing the same thing for physio kaplan and brs.... I HATE when this happens haha, I always end up wasting 3-4 studying days just comparing books or cross referencing too much.

So far I read the 2012 embryo and then ended up reading the 2010 embryo which was the same info but just written out differently. Wasted all day on this.


I will compare the rest of the books tommorow, I left them in my car on purpose so I do not waste all day comparing them, I am going to finish one chapter of kaplan and then will check the rest of the books.

As for concepts, I dont know, I'm having trouble grasping that whole thought. I'm kind of understanding the concept and then memorizing all the details from kaplan... it feels like I need 6 months just to do this once.

I feel like if I just understand the concepts and then right away dilute it down to what's in first aid I become limited to only what's in first aid and I won't remember a single thing from the kaplan book.
For some reason I think diluting down to first aid might be better actually... I have a limite foundation and learning so much new info might be overwhelming, maybe it's better to just understand the concepts and then know FA very very very well.

Basically I only looked over embryo and gross anatomy.

EMBRYO 2012 vs 2010 - The info is the same just very minor changes, like one sentence or something.... it's only a 10 page section anyway.
What I noticed is that instead of having BIG BOLD headings and then the info you need to know underneath... they kind of crammed all the info together in the 2012 version which I HATE.

I personally need a big heading, and then the info underneath. If I have to pick out main points from a bunch of sentences I suck at that haha.


GROSS ANAT: I see so many changes, there's a lot of info taken out and a lot of clinical info added in, there's too many changes to start explaining. I'm guessing the main concepts are the same... they just took out a couple unnecessary details and added in some different info I guess.

Rest of the stuff I will update tmrw probably.



VIDEOS:
2011 and 2010 is the same thing. The 2010 Physio videos followed the physio book line for line.
The anatomy videos are a bit off because theres changes in the info and the order of topics so you have to flip around a bit. Starting anatomy vids now.... wish me luck I think I need a full year to prepare for this beast.

Makes me feel normal to know I'm not the only one haha. I actually waste daysss comparing books and spend more time comparing them then reading them.

I wish I had only 1 source per topic and I had no choice but to just do it. I made the mistake of buying every single book you can think of... now I keep comparing them all and each book has strengths and weaknesses so it just confuses me even more.

Well anatomy will always be anatomy it doesn't change, but the details that they included did change a bit.

For example there's no mention of the muslces/arterial supply/innervation of the diaphragm at all in the 2012 version and there's a couple other things that have been left out.

As for what they added, they've thrown in some new details as well as well as some new clinical scenarios.

There's been less additions, but rather more deletions. Sometimes I feel like those extra 5 or 6 details per chapter that they deleted don't save me much time, but possibly could cause me to lose a question or two on the exam.

I guess I will stick to my 2008 kaplan notes. And update material with the 2010 videos and 2012 FA. I can not lose more time in doubts about the material. It's better to go for one and study that very well.
If you said that they have taken out more material that they have added, then I preffer to study more than to study less. Another reazon to stay with my 2008 lecture notes.

I appreciate your time! and your answer.

Thanx!!! have a great study day!

Hello, I have the blue cover books. 2008-2009.
All of kaplan books differ just a little. They rearrange the content of every subject year by year, but the main content is the same. I have made a big research in forums and got to the next conclusion:
1.- I f you already have you kaplan books, study from that, study the videos that you have, and up date material from last edition of FA, physiology BRS, and the Pathology book of your preference (Golgian or BRS are the best I guess)

2;- If money is not a problem AT ALL, well, buy the new edition if that will make you feel more comfortable.

The most important thing is not what kind of book you study, but who is behind that book studying. It's VERY important that you thrust the material you are studying, you have to believe in it, love it, and make it yours. That way your study agenda will be easier. If you do not thrust the material you are studying you better change it or change your way of thinking about it, because it does not matter how good the material is, if you do not believe it is good enough you will be doubtful all the time, and that will not help your study.

Hope it helps.
Stop worrying, make a study plan, and stick with it. You will ace the exam only that way.
Regards
Jessy

Default Now please share that....

thinking positively we came to know where they have changed majorly from this discussion. Now anyone please give us what additional material they have added into Anatomy please? give us just the hints or clinical concepts headlines in a short summary...
you are helping the students who have the exam in 2 weeks who cannot compare the editions which takes approx. 2 days

Default Kaplan 2010 Vs 2012

Hello Everyone,
I was wondering if someone came across both 2010 and 2012 lecture notes and videos. Are there major differences?

Also do you recommend Kaplan for all subjects? I am planing on studying FA and solving the USMLE world questions as well...

Thanks

I can assure Biochemistry is pretty much unchanged. As for the other books, well I haven't started yet. I'll keep you guys informed.

Guys help please I have the 2010 stuff, but I am trying to decide if I need to register for the 2012 new material. However, this is really costly so is it worth it...?

I do not know 100% but Kaplan are great in copying and pasting the same stuff over and over again.

KLN 2010 is identical to KLN 2008

Default Oiii!



I have a mix of 2010 and 2011 KLN. My vids are 2011 as well, i think. Now I'm thinking I should just go for it and get the updated things altogether..

Haven't done enough with the books for it to be an issue if I get the new set. Except the cost...sigh....

If you have the 2011 KLN, don't buy the new edition anymore. It won't make a difference. There are other more important things to spend for in step 1 prep i.e. qbanks, other books, flash cards, nbmes, etc.

My anatomy, Micro/Immuno, and pharm are 2010. Maybe I can get some friends to give me their used 2011 copies..

Now I'm having a dilemna as to which version to use.

I kind of like the 2011 version because it has large headings to help organize stuff, whereas 2012 is more condensed.... but I'm thinking they changed the 2012 books for a reason and there must be important changes.
Hi, Would you mind sharing the PDFs. can you also detail which chapters in Anat are different? I have already finished reading Anat from the 2011 notes so this might help me some.

Thanks.

Default Kaplan 2010

Hi everyone. Thanx for the informative posts here...
I was confused if I should get 2012 kaplan or 2010...
well judging from the threads here I came to my decision to get 2010. And update my notes with goljan, Uworld, and 2012 FA. for the slides well maybe I will use robbins, and some slides from the net etc.
I'm a bit OC myself when it comes to latest books but I just realized that new books doesn't really guarantee me 100% that I'll pass the exam. I'm learning so much from this forum. Thanx!!! I think I know a bit how to plan my studies now. BTW, I'm an IMG. planning to take step 1 next year maybe on Jan or Feb. - the smileys are so cute hehe....
