Re: Kaplan Alternatives

Anyone who did these please inform me
I believe that Kaplan Test Center is the best gift that God has given us to prepare for USMLE

Attending live lectures, watching updated current DVDs, having your own [legal] lecture notes, meeting all sorts of students, finding your study partner, ...etc

So many advantages

The only problem is that it's expensive

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.

which kaplan review course is most effective for USMLE step1?

I am an IMG, graduated 10 years ago and wanted to enroll to "classroom anywhere" course from Kaplan ( new product of kaplan) which is a 14 weeks live lecture ( thru online)...4 months online review course and 4 months free Qbank.
I need a survey or reviews regarding this course esp. an ONLINE review course. How effective is it? Or should i enroll at a centerprep? and How long should i study? 6/ 9 months? for step 1

You can't sign up for the Classroom anywhere until September 25, do you know that?

yes, anyone who is interested can enroll anytime in classroom anywhere of Kaplan but the start of the live lecture which is held @ New Jersey will be on Aug29th and ends on December 4, 2011. You can check it on the website and go to the classroom anywhere to see the next scheduled date for the course which is still discounted until the end of the month.

I want to know if this new course will be as effective as centerprep.

I've done the classroom anywhere, it's very nice and useful and convenient. I didn't do CenterPrep so I can't really tell the difference, but I was checking with my friends and I got exactly the same lectures they were getting. So go for it, it's good.
I even voted for it in the poll above.

Thanks so much for the positive response, I appreciate it so much.
Are you still in the course? When did u actually enroll and did you get additional courses on top of it? It's 4 months right?
How long or short did you review for step 1? Is it full time?
What does your schedule looks like when you were on the "classroom anywhere"? :rolleyes:
