    Yeah, the high yield problem solving guide is chalk full of typos and poor examples - for instance the physics example about "projectile motion" that is actually about energy. In general, I've been happy with the Kaplan class, but the materials are chalk full of discrepencies(between teacher and student edition) and typos. I think, and I'd have to double-check, that I even came across a typo in Full length 1.

      April. I can't wait until April 17th to be done with all of this. Although I must admit that preparing for the MCAT isn't as bad as I thought it would be. After my Kaplan diagnostic and first few classes I was feeling very overwhelmed, but I'm suprised how quickly the old stuff has come back. Not to mention that getting into the groove of timing/parsing through passages/understanding the logic behind the questions they ask comes quick and helps the whole process. But don't get my wrong - it still sucks.
