Default Need help to decide asap!


I am IMG 5 years qualified, preparing for Step 2 CK.

I hope to sit in November

I started study about three weeks ago. I am averaging around 60% on UWorld.

I want to do a Kaplan prep course and am trying to decide between LivePrep or Classroom Anywhere. The money and travel costs etc do not bother me as such, I just want to know which is the BETTER course or are they the same. I know I would benefit from structured learning but is that the ONLY benefit.

Does anyone know or have experience of this? Have to decide within next few days!

I will offer my advice if it not too late for you. You said that you would benefit from structure learning. That tells me that you lack some discipline for sitting and watching videos on your own. So my advice (from what I read) would be to go with the live classroom unless you can find the discipline to watch the videos on your own.

I am the opposite ... I do not like live because you cannot pause to take notes and they go too fast for me plus I get distracted easily.
