Kaplan Medical Is kaplan biochemistry too long?

hello
I finished the Kaplan review lectures and DVD in biochemistry but that was a long time ago and now I am revising for my exam.
I was wondering should I go for it all over again? or do the Kaplan vids with FA and not the lectures? I also have the pass program series videos so should I do it?
What's enough?

Thanks a lot

You can finish watching Kaplan Biochemistry videos in 3-4 days if you spend 8 hours per day. So if you still have enough time for that, then do it, it's more than enough.

Yeah, if you plan to use FA for final revision, don't forget to annotate it.

I dont know if its completely wise to go over the videos again. They didn't really add any more info to the KLN, so why not just read the KLN thoroughly *memorize*?

I dont know about you, but even going over Lecture Videos once was painful (so0o0o0o long), next Kaplan read, I just plan on reading the notes, and adding info into FA. So then finally I have everything in FA.

If you already did the kaplan videos, I dont think you should do them again...unless you find yourself strugging with questions. I recommend going over FA and doing UWorld questions.
