Thumbs Up The right touch

Hello there. I believe many people (maybe even you) have had the same problem I am having.

I am an IMG from Europe currently studying for step 1. My method of studying is Kaplan lecture notes + Kaplan videos.

However, my lecture notes are 2017 and my DVDs are 2015. Thus far they seem to match except some missing chapters in Behavioral.

I believe the videos are not outdated. So, as an IMG if you use 2015+ videos and the latest kaplan notes you are completely fine.
Do you agree?

Totally agree, I did exactly the same, but i tought i used the 2014 videos, i don't know exactly but i used the latest lecture notes and it worked very well , got 241. I recommend you to excell on the behavioural science section cause is the worst for IMGs and also , YOU SHOULD DO ALL the uWorld questions, is the best thing to really prepare

Hey
Ive recently started with Kaplan videos 2010 with FA 2018
Is this worthwhile or Kaplan notes are a must as well? If so in which topics particularly ?
Also, do the Kaplan video contents change
significantly in the newer versions ?
