Kaplan course materials or their regular for-sale books?Based on my experience, I've always found EK verbal to be a little more representative than Kaplan. Using Kaplan (and others) for practice is still probably helpful though. I would maybe save the EK for last.
I guess I'm referring to their course materials... I'm not really sure what the for-sale books are.Kaplan course materials or their regular for-sale books?
I haven't really delved into either yet but they are drastically different with little overlap. For instance, their for-sale science books stink while their science course materials are amazing.
Interesting, I don't think I've seen those. Well, it's a shame you have to sign up for the expensive course to receive the best materials.like the ones you'd go to a bookstore/Amazon to buy vs. the stuff they give you when you sign up for the course.
they're actually very, very different.
Are you referring to their Sectional Tests for verbal? I think they have 15 of them?It's a business after all
I haven't had time (yet) to look through Kaplan's verbal materials. Eventually, I will and I'll update the thread I have with my review of all the various resources.Are you referring to their Sectional Tests for verbal? I think they have 15 of them?
So its what in their books + 15 verbal FLs + some in their QBank + Their FL MCATs ..
@Jepstein which one of them do you think was the best? How did you use them?
Great thanksI haven't had time (yet) to look through Kaplan's verbal materials. Eventually, I will and I'll update the thread I have with my review of all the various resources.
I didn't use them for my MCAT, though.
In general, Kaplan has two distinct MCAT resources. Their course materials are hands down better than their non-course materials. Topical tests especially.
Hey I have been studying for verbal with the Kaplan course and with the 101 passages from EK. I personally feel like EK is harder, but do any of you guys know whether Kaplan or EK is more realistic of the actual MCAT?
