    Hey all, planning on taking the MCAT spring of Junior year, I just completed my sophomore year. The idea for me now is to finish up a Physics course, and study for the MCAT during this summer.

    Debating on a Kaplan MCAT comprehensive or Princeton course.

    Kaplan course is about $1849, not sure about Princeton.

    Any advice/suggestions/opinions on which course will help me prepare better for MCAT?

    I was also planning on using the Examkracker books to study on my own.

    i would highly recommend princeton over kaplan. This is based on personal experience as well as the experience of my friends.

    also, if you have extra study time (which you should) get the EK set

    Thanks. A friend of mind also recommended PR over Kaplan. Wasn't quite sure why, though.

    Bump...any other suggestions on Kaplan Vs. TPR??

    The only problem with TPR is that the classroom course is like 25-30 minutes away from me. Kaplan would be more convenient as it would be closer.

    Self-Study, Examkrackers and Kaplan are the best.

    Review Courses - Princeton Review. And maybe examkrackers.

    I'm in the Kaplan classroom course and love it. You review content in the Review books and review major ideas in the class, integrating and consolidating concepts, along with practice passages & MCAT questions.

    Outside of class there are online workshops, practice topical & section tests, full-length tests, discretes to practice on, full-length exams, etc
