Default it depends.

ah one thing, watching lectures for hours without having a reference from textbook, i mean active reading is for short term and wont help in a long run . Dr. najeev is pretty much simple, nice to watch and informative. Ya one can have preferential topic selection as the entire tape is too lengthy and exhausting. For USMLE kaplan seems to be a better option to rely upon.

if you have time...then you should go for Dr najeeb

kaplan videos are like 240hrs while najeeb is 400hrs thats why people shy away from najeeb but in terms of content and building your basics..GO FOR DR NAJEEB
i had a distinction in anatomy while in med.school without knowing Nothing in neuro(i hated it with passion but devoted 100% time to other regions of antomy)
kaplan nuero confused me more but after watching najeeb's,i saw tremendous improvement

kaplan did a very nice job in genetics/biochem.thats basically what i used with FA & uworld.just like you,step 1 was my first exposure to genetics.

dont get me wrong,kaplan is very good except micro/immun.,neuro anat. and pathology IMO but najeebs will teach you from scratch as if you knew nothing

I think its very subjective. People swear about Najeeb's lecture while there are other who believe Kaplan is gold standard.
