Based on my personal experience, doing both ways will maximize your preparation. If you already have Kaplan Videos with you, there's no point of taking center prep anymore unless you really have problem with studying on your own space and desperately need Kaplan atmosphere to motivate you. Otherwise, just attend the live lecture, and I think 7 weeks is enough, no need to extend it to 14 weeks. Please make sure that you have finished revising all Kaplan Notes at least once before attending the lecture. That will maximize the outcome of attending this lecture. Hope it helps.
