Do you mean the computer videos or the live lectures?

I don't know if Falcon lectures exist as computer videos, but from what I hear, Kaplan videos are by far the most commonly used ones.

No idea about the live lectures.

By far the Kaplan series is most widely used by IMGs and FMGs....I recently had a couple of friends get 99s from Pakistan who all did the Kaplan video lecture series.

My vote's for Kaplan because I think its more thorough with everything except Pathology, but Falcon path is excellent. Use Kaplan and Goljan path.

Both are really good though - I've had friends that have taken both and they argue that both have different strengths. I personally did Kaplan's retreat and I was amazed by the profs I had.
