    So I am giving myself about 4 days to do content review since I just finished all of the content for SN2ed's schedule. I am hoping someone else here that has seen benefit from either of these can provide input.

    On one hand, I can look over my notes and make notecards of them for each chapter so that I'd be writing them down a second time.

    On the other hand, I could use Khan videos or buy Chad's videos and get through as many as possible on weak subjects (Physics + G.C.) over the next 4 days.

    Any help is really appreciated!!

    It all depends on how YOU learn best: notecards or videos.

    only the best videos ever!!! (course saver.com without the space)

    definitely get chad's videos, go thru them (at like 1.5x speed) and take notes! more beneficial than anything else at this point! easily go thru them all in less than 2 days, take half a day to review the notes you took on videos. highly recommended!

    good for when you're done with content review. but just need to brush-up and make sure you know everything.

    Do most of you make notecards from you BR readings? Or just move on to videos/other sources for a brush up?

    Never heard of Chad's videos, but I used Khan during my prep. I think Khan gives a fundamental view of complex material which translated to me being able to extract the fundamental ideas from complex passages. .02

    i would definitely say so. even though Chad doesn't have bio videos all his other videos are amazing. for anyone who doesn't mind spending a few extra bucks his videos are something i would HIGHLY recommend.
