Kaplan Medical Kaplan Live Lectures for Step 2 CK

Hi everyone,

Is Kaplan Live Lectures for Step 2 CK worthy to go with? What are they going to teach us for 6 weeks? Do they just review again all 5 kaplan books? Compare with the videos, what is the more benefit of this course?

Anyone who took this course, please help give me your advise.

Thank you so much

hi
i did take the 7 week live lecture course for kaplan for CK. in NYC.

what teachers are there for your course? and .. how much are you prepared before you go in.... are the 2 most imp factors...



i went unprepared .. cos it was 4 days after my step 1 exam and i just wasted alot of the good resources i had.
the course is very very different from the step 1 courses and it is a REVIEW and not a teaching course.. and is very superficial if you have not read before.
baseline is that you must hv read up the previous day/revised what was taught in class that very day/ AND DO QUESTIONS(VERY VERY IMP)-- to make full use of class.

If you think you can keep up with it. and can find time to do all this every day (and ALL THE ABOVE 3 THINGS) go ahead.
if not--- do the videos.. and do the kaplan qbank. think it shud be equally good.


THE GOOD POINTS OF THE COURSE:-

OBGYN/PEDS-- if you have dr. SAKALA and Dr. CVETNIC teaching you they give you their own notes and you dont hv to read the kaplan books.

surgery if you have dr-pestana------ you will never forget surgery all your life!

For MEDICINE -- u shud go ahead if you have Dr. Fischer/ Dr. Leiber/ Dr Noto or Dr. Dasgupta teaching you

the faculty for behav and PSY is great (i had Dr. Daugherty and Dr. Fadem... but all are very good.)



so check what teachers will be teaching at the course.. and read along/do questions... and u shud be fine.

also which kaplan outlet are u taking ur course at?
