I've recently seen some people on the boards knockin the EK books (ed. 6). Is it really that bad? I mean I find it way easier to study then the PR books I have, but i've also heard that the EK books dont go into enough detail.

Anyone know if this is true? I want to fully depend on them, but not if they arent reliable...

What do yall think?

i love their books. especially their orgo book, which does not show any actual arrow formalisms for reactions. also, i feel like their VR101 is priceless because they have really good answer explanations, for instance "B-WRONG, this is not what the author thinks." I mean, its hard to get indepth insight such as that from Kaplan or TPR

I was not that impressed with Exam Krackers. I thought the biology was fantastic but general chemistry and physics were just ok.
