I personally did Kaplan videos for behavioural sciences and biostats, and I gotta say Kaplan is a must. The BS part of Kaplan is an 8/10 but what truly shines is the Biostats. If you feel that your behavioural science is good, I would still suggest Kaplan videos, unless you are absolutely godly at it. As for Biostats, I don't care how godly you are, I would still suggest you go over the Kaplan videos. The guy who does BS is the same guy who does Biostats, and he is fantastic.

I agree, the stats and BS videos are amazing!
Stats can be tricky, one needs to understand it really well. Do some extra exercises over time; I would suggest, until your exam, do at least few stat Qs every week, so you don't forget how to solve them - if you are well trained, during the exam you'll solve the Qs quickly and it will increase your score
