    Hey all,
    I'll be taking a Kaplan in class room course in the summer. I've noticed that the review books (bio, chem, phys, ochem) do not have very many practice questions. The lesson book (which contains all 4 subjects) doesn't contain many questions. So, I bought a separate physics review book with some questions. What about you? Are you having to buy additional books just to solve problems? Or do you plan on simply doing the sample exams provided by Kaplan? If you are purchasing separate problem solving books, which ones are you purchasing?

    I'm not sure how much the classroom course differs from the online course (which I took), but while it is true that there aren't too many practice problems in the books, there were tons of problems in the online quizzes and workshops. I did end up getting NOVA physics since I needed extra help there (it is definitely worth getting if physics is a weakness for you), as well as "Organic Chemistry as a Second Language I and II" since I'm a non-trad and it's been about 6 years since I took o-chem. These books were also very helpful.
