Kaplan Medical How important are the Kaplan Videos?

Hello to all fellow members,

I have been contemplating the videos bit. I have seen the poll where people voted on which videos are good and which can be missed. But what if i don't watch any of it? Does it do any harm to me?

I am using Kaplan Lecture Notes for all subjects except Pathology. Is it recommended to go through the videos?

Thanking you in advance.

I was wondering if the people who have done the exam or about to do the exam in recent times found it useful. I am guessing the ones which are floating around are from 2007 so i want to know how useful are they exactly.

The videos will give another media to consolidate and retain the materials but they do not add more knowledge or more information. Most of the high yield information is available in the notes. In addition, when you subscribe to Kaplan Qbank, you will see videos coupled to some of the questions there and that would further consolidate the material in your memory.
Bottom line, my persona advice is to skip the videos if you don't have the time for them, you can still ace the exam without them.
Because this question has been repeated, am starting a poll here
Do we need to watch Kaplan Videos?
