Help Kaplan 5-day Live prep question

Need some help guys.

I am trying to decide if I should do the Kaplan Live Prep course. I feel like the decision rests on how valuable it will be for me and I cannot seem to reach a conclusion on that. Here are a few pros and cons.

1. I am an old graduate (more than 5 years) and have been in and out of clinics for some time. It would be great if I can do the cases in real time.
2. Kaplan is the best live prep course

1. Cost of the course a little too high
2. I don't know anyone at the location - will have to stay in an hotel - cost again
3. I work full time (8am-5pm) and will have to leave my job for a whole week.

Based on this, I am unable to figure out if the Kaplan Live Prep would be worth leaving my job for a week and spending a tidy sum. Any suggestions on the amount of help it can provide to an old grad like me?

What is YOUR take on this. IF you have taken the Live Prep course - what did you think about it? If you haven't taken the course, why did you not choose to do it?

Keep Calm and Carry On.

Hi! I have the same question.

I have called Kaplan about their step 2 CS liveprep course. I think one of the pros too is that you get to practice with "patients". At least, that's what they told me. There's also a mock exam with feedback at the end of the course.

I'm leaning towards taking it, but I've also been looking all over the internet for more feedback. I hope someone can shed light on this.
