You don't need to pay thousands to go for the centerprep.
All you need is the lecture notes and do some qbanks and you'll get high scores.

So I took the Kaplan live lectures for 7 weeks and it is great for those 7 weeks.. And then afterwards you're like why the heck did I waste my time with the 7 week course??? Its great for getting notes and a first look at concepts, You annotate those notes into First Aid and basically do first aid till your exam for the most part along with UWORLD of course.


Overall, I felt like Dr. Turco was AMAZING!!!!!! Dr. Barone was SUPER GOOD (but he needs more time allotted to him) Dr. Fischer was awesome but superficially touches a lot of things. Dr. Moscatello is AWESOME but sadly her material is stuff that is a quick read in First aid anyway. Pharmacology and Anatomy professors are super nice but sadly, their subjects are very bland and require brute memory recall really.. so they're a waste of time in my personal opinion. Dr. Noto for Physiology is a nightmare by the way, made me want my money back. Luckily they started off with Dr. Turco which made me wait for Barone.


Is it worth it, meh.. If you are slow and need a quick review then yes. If you're efficient on your own, you're better off with studying on your own + Pathoma. Although, I must repeat this again because hes THAT DAMN GOOD, Dr. Turco just MAKES SENSE and makes biochem easy.


The Choice is yours. goodluck!
