Kaplan USMLE Review

RATING:

When it comes to USMLE prep, Kaplan USMLE stands out as the industry leader. Kaplan’s Step 1, Step 2 [object Window], Step 2 CS and Step 3 prep courses include excellent content and quality materials for all in-person, live online and on demand options.

Comprehensive course materials, including instructional lectures and/or videos, question banks, practice exams, and lecture notes give US and international students access to a wealth of material to prepare them to master the USMLE exams.

Pros

1. Extensive Video Library

Access to more than 100 video hours for USMLE step 1 and step 2 preparation (and more than 2oo hours for courses aimed at international medical graduates) convey the large body of information covered on the exams in an entertaining and informative way. Videos are of high quality and can be viewed at 1.5 times their regular speed. Watching videos at top speed allows students to shave hours off of their study time, especially for topics that are more familiar.

Kaplan has one of the largest question banks in the business. Questions are presented in an exam-like interface and are continually updated by medical faculty and former NBME writers. Students can select questions based on difficulty and high yield, and the question banks for all the different USMLE exams include full explanations for each question, as well as diagnostic and practice tests, overview tables, images, clinical videos and heart sounds.

Page references to First Aid (for Step 1) and USMLE Master the Boards (Step 3) point to external resources for additional information. For the hardest questions you’ll also get 200 mini-lectures (“Qutorials”) from expert medical faculty. A free mobile App compatible with both iPhone and Android) gives students the flexibility to study on the go.

3. Well-Structured and Organized

Kaplan’s methodological approach provides a good amount of structure for students who choose an online, on-demand option rather than a live course. An intuitive online platform with access to diagnostic assessments, [object Window], videos, and full-length practice exams keeps students focused and on track.

Multi-volume sets of carefully constructed lecture notes are included for the Step 1 and Step 2 courses to help you memorize essential information. You’ll also be able to take shorter quizzes, diagnostic tests, as well as one full-length simulation exam for most courses.

4. International Course Options

Kaplan offers a suite of courses aimed specifically at international students who have attended medical schools outside of the US. In addition to various options to prepare for USMLE Step 1, Step 2 [object Window], and Step 3 in a Live, [object Window], and On Demand format, international graduates can take an In-Center course at their own pace, which provides live interaction with peers, Kaplan staff, and top-of-the line computer labs to help students with focused review for their exams.

There is also a Step 2 CS prep course, and additional online courses are available to help foreign students navigate the residency application process, learn more about interview preparation, and get answers to questions about medical residency in the US. Kaplan Medical’s Plus Programs also allow students to bundle In Center with Live or Live Online programs for a reduced price.

1. Information Overload

Kaplan’s impressive amount of study materials guarantee a full review of the content tested on the exams, but may be daunting for students who have already spent thousands of hours studying in medical school. You will definitely need to stick to a good study plan to get through Kaplan’s staggering number of review questions, video lectures, and ancillary materials.

2. Price

Kaplan Medical’s comprehensive USMLE prep materials are not cheap. These first-rate courses have the most updated material from medical experts, so you can expect to pay a premium price. There is so much material that you may not get your money’s worth if you don’t budget enough time to study for the USMLE exams.
