I made this thread as a support group for those watching Kaplan videos right now. They are very helpful, but are painfully looong. If you guys need to rant, share insights or ask questions, feel free to post.

@ Tootsie, Suka, and Usmlemydream, my fellow I-don't-like-watching-videos-before-but-looks-like-I-have-to-now, this is our thread. LOL!

i am skipping microbiology, immunology, pathology part of kaplan videos. and the rest are as big as ocean and it definitely takes lots of my time. VLC player can do it faster, still they are v.v.long.

I'm doing them at 1.5 to 1.8x too, but I feel like it's going to take me a week or more per subject. I'm hoping I can do Pharma and Biochem at 4 days each...

The problem is my macbook air gives up on the videos before I do. It's so prone to overheating. After an hour of Kaplan, I can hear its fans whirring so loud, I'm afraid it's going to shut down.

The saving grace about the videos I'm watching right now is that Lionel Raymon discusses pharma so well, I really feel it's worth the time.

I only watched/plan to watch: immuno, beh. sci, physio, biochem, and pharma. I don't think I can take any more videos than those.

@Beka-CTS: I agree!! I don't know how Lionel Raymon does it, but he makes pharma so interesting and I'm learning tons from him! I'm starting to wish I watched his videos back in med school.

yes. he's is sarcastic simetimes, sometime he's joking very well....
I couldn't resist sam turcos monotonous type of lecturing i thinks it's hard ( if not impossible) to read a lecture about Blots, PCR and all the lab techniques without being "boring"

Hahaha... I'm kind of worried about Sam Turco. I haven't watched biochem yet, but it's my next subject. Sam Turco has mixed reviews... That's why I'm still trying to find those old (2004) biochem all-Lionel Raymon videos coz I'm 100% sure Raymon's are excellent.

If anyone here knows where to find them, please send me the link... Thank you!!

Don't be afraid of Sam Turco. His voice is only monotonous when we don't speed him up. He's really good and passionate about what he teaches and I think it frustrates him a little when students are not as passionate. He tells us which enzymes are low yield vs. high yield enzymes. He sorta makes biochem idiot-proof. He's really good.

As for Raymon, I absolutely love the guy to even say I might have a tiny crush on him (joking) because he makes the cutest little jokes and he talks so funny. His art is in integrating path, pharm, biochem and even micro. I guess he has lectured so many subject that he feels comfortable in putting them all on a single plate.

Since it is IMO the toughest subject, I will watch both sets. I just finished with Turco, gonna watch it again for annotating purpose and then watch how Raymon mixes disciplines.

I have vlc automatically set to start a lecture at 1.36 which is perfect. Not too fast, not too slow.

Sending out my thanks to dr_wiqued for this thread. It motivates me to watch videos now. I'm gonna stop wasting time and get onto it. I don't want to skip any videos because even micro and immuno (although they seem to have the worst review) were liked by many ppl and some kids say that she repeated things so much that it automatically stuck (Dr. Laura, a forum member, gave a review on the kaplan series on a youtube video).

What I will skip- patho- gonna listen to Goljan instead and buy pathoma. I think immuno Lange book does such a good job at explaining immuno that I might not have to watch the video.

In physio I'm going to replace current videos with Dr Dunn's videos from 2004.

Let's rock this joint....

@tootsie: Thank you for reassuring me about the biochem videos! LOL on the "idiot-proof" part! Your feedback was really encouraging!

Yep, I saw the review by Dr. Laura too. If I have time to watch microbio videos, maybe I'll do the bacteria and virus generalities and HIV topics. I find these topics very boring to study on my own.

Immuno kaplan videos are good, but a bit basic. I don't have any background in immuno back in med school -- it's only integrated in my pathology class -- that's why I found the videos very helpful. But if you understood and read Review of Immuno by Levinson (It's the Lange book you're talking about, right?). I think the Lange/Levinson book is already a step-up or the more advanced one.

What finally pushed me to do videos is my performance in uworld. Since it's my first qbank, it was a "litmus paper" test for me on which subjects I REALLY have to watch and build concepts on. The good thing is, Kaplan videos have great lecturers on my weak subjects (i.e. Biochem). That was a relief!

Behavioral science is a must-see!! I insist... I struggle with the videos, but I'm telling you, don't miss behavioral science -- especially the ethics part. They're worth repeating TWICE for me. LOL! Dr. Daugherty there discusses how the cases are going to be presented in the exam, which choices to eliminate first (i.e. those wherein you delegate the decison-making to the ethics committee), how to differentiate and what cues to look for in psychiatric disorders. He's amazing!

I haven't watched neuro videos yet... I always read mixed reviews on the neuro videos. Doesn't he (Neuroanatomy Dr. from Kaplan 2010 videos) just read the stuff from the book or something? Please share why you found them helpful... Thanks!

Wait...so most of you guys are really advanced huh?

I haven't done any qbank so far. I don't have a single clue as to how the questions look like on the exam. Planning on starting once I finish annotating kaplan videos onto FA. So far the only videos I have watched are biochem.

I also plan on doing DIT and Kaplan High-Yield. I hope not to get overwhelmed but I just don't want any surprises on that test.

How many videos and which ones have you guys watched so far? Are you doing passive listening (no annotating) vs active listening (annotating)? Are you guys doing the LN as well?

Yea man I found them helpful because the guy gives you certain parameters to follow, for example when looking at cross-sections of the brain stem and stuff like that. Although it will need to be supplemented with DIT and alot of questions it will improve you understanding. I mean the next thing is to watch the Najeeb videos but those are wayyy tooooo loonnggg and proly too in depth and too long to make connections...

So if your neuro was bad like mine was, then take the time. I think they are only 11 hours or so...not too bad...Like i said I found them really helpful, and especially doing DIT and the questions in Pretest I am improving in the UW questions...

I will def watch the beh videos...does anybody know how many hours those take?

I've watched beh. science, physio (cardio, renal, pulmo, musculoskel), immuno. I'm currently watching pharma.

I write my notes on microsoft word/powerpoint while the lecturer is speaking. I read KLN during my first read. I'm doing videos for my 2nd read/revision -- just to fill in the gaps in my knowledge and to increase understanding of the concepts.

Thank you very much!! I think I'll like that approach where he orients us to the neuro structures. I'll probably watch neuro videos too after my weak subjects.

Here's a list of hours I found in a forum:

Anatomy 24hr
Behavioral science 25 hrs
Biohem and medical Genetics 32hrs
Immuno 9hrs
Microbiology 16hrs
Pathology 26hrs
Pharmacology 25hrs
Physiology 34hrs

I just started, but it's so hard keeping up with the videos! They're so long. Right now I'm watching Biochemistry. There's also a few files missing.

Damn!
I try not to get myself into this forum for a few days or miss a few hrs.. And I miss alot of stuff!!
I wish I can get an email or notification (like fb) everytime my name gets mentioned.. Lol!

d_wiqed! Thanks for this... If I drank coffee at 12. I would have slept at 12.30 too.. Coffee puts me to sleep..

The videos I am not planning on watching at all - Path (I watched it for 15 mins and I swear I was going to knock myself on the wall), Biochem.

The videos I watched - histo (half of it), physio (till Resp and I plan to watch the rest soon...).

I am thinking about watching - Behavioural (d_wiqed's influence), micro/immuno (everyone keeps talking abt it).

I watched a video of Biochem a while ago.. And didn't like it much... But will consider it..
I wouldn't recommend histo. The dude literally reads off everything that's in the book.

You're lucky you're almost done with the videos! I'll have a celebratory drink when I'm through with them!

I've never come across a feedback here that recommended histo lectures. Also, it got the lowest vote here: http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-st...ave-watch.html But maybe someone in this forum has a different opinion...

By the way, just a heads up, I'm not a big fan of the histo kaplan lecture book... It's badly written -- the worst in the kaplan series in my opinion. If you haven't read histo kaplan yet, switch to HY histology instead. It's a lot easier to read, the format is simpler, and it actually takes less time. That's just my suggestion. You can try histo kaplan first and if it doesn't work for you, you can look for the HY histology pdf online and see if you like it.

@sukar: I think our first conversation in this forum was when you were reading histo kaplan book and we were both ranting how bad or boring it was...

You can try histo kaplan first and if it doesn't work for you, you can look for the HY histology pdf online and see if you like it.

@sukar: I think our first conversation in this forum was when you were reading histo kaplan book and we were both ranting how bad or boring it was...
Guys... if are not going to watch a video, then that video has to be the one for Genomics... It's really bad and boring... total waste of time. It's better to read it by yourself or to read HY genomics after Kaplan if you think that Kaplan was not enough.

Do yourself a favor and don't watch genomics

Guys I have a question,

How long does it take to go through kaplan LN + videos assuming I have about 8 hours per day?

Did you guys incorporate FA at all while doing kaplan? I haven't started any question banks because I want to have at least FA down to do qbanks, otherwise I feel like i'm guessing for the most part or answering correctly but for reasons other than what the explanation gives.

God, help me please :sorry: ...my lack of discipline and constant study switching are really driving me insane...

For those who are studying more than 8 hrs/day (including breaks), one subject (32 hrs of videos + notes) takes at least 7 days. A more accurate range may be 7-10 days. (From me and my friend's experience. )

I guess if it will be 8 hrs per day of studying, it might take you around 10 -14 days per subject.

This is just a rough estimate. Maybe others have a different opinion.

Default Been off the forum due to videos :p

I am on the vids as well, so far even the most boring ones has had one key point or just reinforsed the subject somehow.

Micro: done - bacteriology and virology were the best ones
Immuno: decent
Biochem: worth it.
Phys: where I am at now... and whoooo it takes time!

Nice to have a post which supports this falling asleep thing which watching is! it has been really a hard time, hopefully it will pay off when I start mcqs which will be my next step.

I use FA next to the vids, post its with extra notes after the vids!

Rock on ppl!

MzLizMD! You're back! It's nice to see you around again!

Physio - This subject takes sooo long! Turns out I had to divide them into 3. I watched the 1st part last Feb, the 2nd part this March, and the 3rd part on April (if I still have time). I didn't have the stamina (a.k.a. patience) needed to watch them all back then...
The most useful for me is cardio, renal, and pulmo. I have yet to see endo and G.I.

I hope you're watching the 2010 videos... The 2010 videos (Kudrath, Dunn, and Fischer) are very good. The older ones with other lecturers aren't worth watching, in my opinion.

After you've watched them, can you give feedback on Endo and GI? I'm still thinking if they're worth the time or if I should stick with BRS instead. Thanks!!

Would you rather have one of those 3 lecturers do a greater part?

Which one is the best of those 3 in your opinion? I have the 2003 Dunn videos and I get mixed reviews on all 3 of them and was wondering which one to watch when I get to physio?

Also, how many of you have started with mcqs or FA? When is everybody's approximate test date?

Thanks.

The 3 lecturers have different strengths...

Kudrath

He explains the concepts VERY well, guides you how to read and interpret (cardio and pulmo) graphs, and even makes you understand the physio equations (here, he clarifies the relation of one factor to another). He goes INTO detail -- which can be a good or bad thing depending on the person watching. Personally, I think the detail he goes into is just enough and not too much.

I think learning-wise, he's the best among all three. What I don't like when I watch him is I get bored from all the serious learning and, oh yeah... the volume of notes I have to write... LOL!

Fischer

VERY funny! He makes physio so entertaining that you'll forget that you're watching a lecture! That's just me coz I like his jokes. I know others hate it when he goes off-topic, jokes, and recites verses from poems, but I love it! I was actually able to go through his lectures very fast simply because I can sit all day listening to him. He's good in the ECF/ICF changes topic, however, I didn't learn that much from him in the muscles part. I haven't seen his endo or GI yet.

Dunn

If Kudrath dwells too much sometimes and Fischer lacks depth in some topics, I think Dunn is in the middle. He's straight to the point, but you still learn. He makes annotating very easy! Hehehe!!

My recommendation:

What I did is I watched an hour of video (in fast forward) of the different lecturers (old and 2010 videos) during my down time. After 30 mins - 1 hr, I usually get an idea how a lecturer teaches and then from there decide. Try it and see if you like how they teach.

In my opinion, Kudrath does a good job in cardio and pulmo; Fischer in ECF/ICF; Dunn in renal.

Thanks a lot dr_wiqued..

I think you also get the prize when it comes down to replying and giving out straight answers.

I get what you say and will do it that way. I feel the same about Fischer, sometimes I act like I don't care about the comedy, but when a lecture gets boring...you can feel your eyelids getting very very heavy.

I just finished pharma videos... Then, I spent 2 days arranging my notes.

I suddenly knew what sukar has been feeling since she was transferring notes from Kaplan notes to FA. It IS boring... I felt like I've slowed down too in those two days.

Whew!! One subject down! One more to go...

I can't wait until I finish everything!

I wish I did it sooner too... My exam is also in 3 months.

You know what, the water-soluble vitamins lecture (B1, B12, etc) by Raymon was heavily tested in uworld. Everything he said was asked in uworld.

I just finished the Lionel Raymon (part 1 of the 2010 videos) lectures yesterday in biochem... But I got sidetracked today bec. my cousin unexpectedly dropped by at my house, we talked, and the next thing I know, I'm at a bar, drinking... It's still under my "once a week break" but I feel so guilty right now!

I'll still try my best to do part 2 even just for 2 - 3 hours tonight... It's quite a long list of videos. I hope I make a dent.

That guilt feeling is the worse...I find my self saying the "ehh it's the 1 day outa the week" a little more often then not, so i just try to study a little bit everyday at least 4 hrs on the off day....Dude I also did UW before starting these videos and I can recall those questions I got wrong and then say OOHHH that's why....At the school I go to we are forced to take kaplan live, but I feel like I am getting more out of the videos then a semester ago when I was in a room with all my classmates. good notes tho

Thanks for sympathizing! I feet a lot better...

True... I agree about the "ooohhh that's why" part! I experienced a certain high level of appreciation of kaplan videos when I watched them after usmle world. All the details in uworld just seem to fall into place. I feel that they are consolidated -- esp in biochem.

I am using the 2010 vids, like them alot, but falling asleep is a major issue. I suuuuux at math and stats, but Dr.K really did help me a lot! I still don't get all of them, but at least now I have more of a feeling for the concepts.

BTW: I am sitting with BRS and FA when watching the Phys vids, started on Endo with Fisher now and I think the vids are good. For me they simplify the subject and he clearifies differences and such.

One prob I have had... Dunn on fast-speed... LOOOOOL, I am so sorry, but his voice... gets really high pitch and it feels like my brain is to come out of my nostrils

I tried doing the BRS MCQ for renal after the vids... I must admit I got into a depression at that moment, some of them I got easy, others I were like... Am I really THAT stupid?? Why I don't get this....

Man, I am so afraid of starting doing MCQ... I find my self really just putting it off... I am like... I should have read through it all b4 trying, or should I? My head is sooo spinning in all directions these days!

And I too, found my self at a bar and with a major hangover this weekend

LOL! Me too... I wasn't also expecting Dunn's voice to be so high!

Don't worry... I was lazy to do MCQs during my first read too. Hahaha... And when I do (kaplan end-of-chapter questions), I also get many questions wrong...

At first doing MCQs can be hard and overwhelming, but it gets easier. There's 2000+ questions in uworld, you'll get very used to them! Whether you like them or not, hahaha...

Just do what you can or feel that you want to do right now... You're in the early phase of prep. What is important in my opinion is keeping motivation high. Don't burn yourself out early. We have different ways of doing things... If doing mcqs this early (during first read) is not for you, it's ok. It won't affect your prep that much.

Furthermore, usually end-of-chapter questions of review books can be very hard or very easy depending on the book. They may not be reflective of step 1, although they may help you remember details or concepts. So, don't be too hard on yourself... Take the mcqs as a learning tool and don't be bothered of the score yet.
