    I am a non-traditional student contemplating taking the MCAT plunge after being out of school for 3 years.

    Has anyone taken the prep classes for Kaplan or Princeton review? What did you think about the teachers? their methodology? curriculum? Did any particular section stand out over the other?

    I appreciate your responses. Classes start in January.

    I wasn't too thrilled w/ Princeton review.
    My gf took both, and she thought Kaplan had much better resources and prepared you better.
    Also, when you get to boards, Kaplan's prep rules!

    Only 3 years? lol - I hadn't taken basic sciences (and didn't really learn it then!) for almost 10 years. I took Kaplan while a friend took Princeton Review. I think a lot comes down to your instructors, but I personally like the Kaplan materials and arrangement better. I really believe in what Kaplan teaches (and now teach for them). Feel free to email/private message with any questions!

    Good luck

    I have also taken both Kaplan and TPR. I prefered TPR b/c I thought their materials were better. I loved it so much that I am now teaching the verbal section for them.
