    Apart from the classroom courses Kaplan is offering Verbal Edge Course, Organic Edge Course and Physics Edge Course. These are all online courses. I have really two questions.

    1. Which Edge course would you take? In other words, which of the three is most difficult?

    2. Has anyone taken the Verbal Edge Online course, I'm seriously considering taking this and was wondering how effective it actually is.

    On-line course = $400 or so spent

    EK verbal book, BR verbal book, and used materials on ebay = $200 spent

    With the extra $200, you could hire a live tutor and get one-on-one help.

    Conclusion: Why pay some large some of money for an internet course when you can get better mateirals and more of them for less money? On-line courses seem useless to me, because it is really hard to ask a computer screen a question.

    EK = examkrackers. Their books can be bought from their website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or a few other discount book brokers on-line.

    BR = Berkeley Review. Their books can be bought from their website.

    Good luck.
