Kaplan Medical Microbiology by Kim Moscatello Videos

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this question is repetitive. But for Micro, Is kim moscatello from kaplan videos really efficient? The videos are quite time consuming but do you think its less or more time consuming than reading CMMRS? And also, which one is better ?

Thanks

People keep suggesting CMMRS but I myself have gone through KLN + Videos and found it very useful. I can't comment on CMMRS

I think it took maybe 2.5 weeks for whole thing (micro + immuno), full time reading + videos 8 hrs / day..

When are you taking the exam?

If you can and have time, watch the videos along with FA and then do UWorld questions. You don't have to do anything else.

I found the videos to be great!

I liked her videos. She was actually quite funny in some of them, so I remember a lot of the material. A lot of what she stressed seemed to help with answering UWorld questions as she stressed certain things I would have glossed over or wasn't in FA.

Oh yeah, also it took me 1 week to go through the micro and immuno together.

Great!! I'm glad = ) I think people just listen to what other people say...like if they hear some videos aren't good and not even TRY to watch them. Yeah there are people that may not like her, but for the most part she is very helpful.

i think she's ok at micro and immuno, but you may have to supplement with cmmrs and make sure to do lots of questions after watching the kaplan vids in general. i alternate after class (we have 7-8h of live kaplan lecture for 2.5 months going on right now).

kaplan's strong suits are physio, pharm, behavioral-i have not yet watched the new path videos without the infamous dr. barone.
