    I already have all the examkrackers material (audio osmosis, examkrackers review set, 1001s and 101s, etc) so is it worth signing up for the live MCAT class? It says the lectures are only 50 minutes and the rest of the time is spent on testing...so its not worth paying $1000+ just to sit there and work on the practice materials when I can do that at home right? or are the materials different? even then is it worth it?

    From my understanding the EK classes basically give you their books (that you can buy separately) and their/AAMC exams. If you really think you will benefit from the actual lecture, then go for it, but if you ask me, since you have all of the material, it wont really be worth your time. You would probably be better of learning the stuff on your own.

    Good Luck

    From my experience, the each class is an overview of the corresponding lecture in the book, followed by a 30 minute in class exam (also in the book). I thought it was a waste of time, but it really depends on your learning style. If you like to be lectured, then go for it. It also gives you an opportunity to ask questions and can help you stay on a schedule. Other than that, there isn't anything extra in the live class.
