I think Pass program videos are very under-rated, though i would appreciate any comments and suggestions.
Sabio please add kaplan high Yield videos too :)

KAPLAN + Dr. Najeeb

Some topics in kaplan videos are just read from slides but still over all Its a good studying aid.
Dr. Najeeb videos are much explanatory. I will personally recommend its neuroanatomy and pharmacology part.
Does anyone have this broken down by section. I have some Kaplan teachers that I really like for certain sections, but i find others are HORRIBLE. I am looking to supplement the good kaplan lectures with another company to have a complete, good, set of lectures.

Najeeb is good for explanations, but I don't feel he has a good grasp of what are highlighted on the boards.

The only Pass videos i've seen are older videos (early 2000's?) and as good as he seems, they are a bit random and all over the place.

I never really liked DIT.

Any other options?

Great Step 1 score taking USMLE Success Academy

I recently passed my step 1 and I wanted to thank everyone for the great info! I attended a decent school in the Caribbean and used the mandatory Kaplan review course to prep for step 1. I took the advice of my friends and this forum and took a few nbme exams after I was done with the Kaplan course. I was not passing my nbmes and I needed more help because the best score I had was a 169 :scared:!!! I read the reviews about the success academy and my good friend had taken their online class in the past so I decided to sign up for their online and live classes. It took me 8 weeks to complete both courses and I was also using Uworld. My nbme scores went up a lot and I was able to pass my step with a score of 237:). Thank you success academy for your help!! P.S. Bring your own coffee if you take the live course!:))
