Kaplan Medical Kaplan is not that much helpful!

Some of my friends say that Kaplan is not that much helpful, rather efforts should be focused on first aid and u world.
Is that true?

depends on your level of understanding and knowledge already
for most imgs the concepts required for the usmle are much deeper than we learn or apply

hence kaplan/HY/BRS or any other review book apart from FA is a MUST.

rest is upto you.

just a word of caution-- the MLE is a once in a life exam. whatever result you get will stick with you throughout. so dont look for a short cut. put in the time and effort.

only lazy folks will tell you that & the irony of the whole stuff is that kaplan even makes reading fa soo much easier and give u more confidence when doing qbanks.
i am telling you from experience dude.kaplan is a must read but fa is gold.
goodluck
