Clock How long it takes

Can you help me figure how long does it take on average to go through Kaplan Notes with videos 1 time.
It's scary that most people on this forum devote at least 3 months to study since my school only gives us 1 month total before the beginning of 3rd year clerckships and I am already using most of my vacation month with this plan.

Please do not vote in the poll if you are a medical graduate.

It all depends on the circumstances.

Like what have you been reading during your med school and were you an average student or higher ...etc.

kaplan videos are already so heavy.... 8 hour video per dvd plus ur brain has limited capacity to keep every thing in it... u cant do so much in 1 month in my opinion... nevertheless I think u r an AMS and most guys here are IMS and IMGs... so if I would have been at ur position I would have consulted my seniors at med school to get exact opinion!!!
