I know that this question has probably been asked 1001 times but, has anyone actually taken the ek prep-course and do ya recommend it? I read a lot of favorable things about their books but I'm not sure which prep-course to take for the summer mcat.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

i took kaplan and about half way through, i stopped going cause it was a waste of time. one of the hardest decisions i had to make since im nontraditional, independent from my parents and had been saving up the 1400 for a LONG time to pay for it. but in the end, the time spent for class studying on my own was much more worth it. i wasted so much time in the lectures, though, i ended up deciding to take the agusut mcat and delay my app for a year. so, save yourself the money, force yourself to be disciplined and go shopping...:laugh:

I am taking Kaplan and the materials that they offer in the practice was helpful. Beside that, it is NOT worth the $1400. Yes it might give you the confidence that you do everything you can for the MCAT, but it is not that helpful. Here is a cheaper way to do the confidence booster. Buy the MCAT prepatory book on Ebay and a few practice test. And buy the AAMC one. All this should cost you $300 or so. Then do the practice test and hopefully you will score in the 30s like all the people who take the prep course.
