I'm looking for reviews for this class. It's next Mon-Thurs, from 8:30 - 4:30 each day. I'm scheduled to work Thurs and Friday, so I'd have to try to arrange to get off on THurs to be able to attend, as it's a $349.00 commitment.
Any and all opinions would be appreciated, especially if you've taken the class yourself, but even if you know someone else who took the class.
I graduate in Dec., and between now and then this is the only timeframe that works in my schedule that will still give me enough time to actually use the material. The test questions will be good for 90 days, which is about January.. hmmm. Maybe I should wait and take the class in December, after finals? That might make more sense since I probably won't be sitting for boards within 90 days.
Anyway, any opinions are appreciated.

I took the Kaplan course while I was still in school...like the last 3 weeks before graduation. Fortunately my school paid for the class, and we also had access to the Kaplan Q-bank and the Question Trainers. In my opinion the class was somewhat of a waste. The classroom part only teaches how to break a question apart and using test taking strategies to find the correct answer. I found that when I took NCLEX, I didn't use their strategies so much except maybe the ABC's. The Q-bank and Question Trainer were fantastic...really good for practicing critical thinking type questions. I recommend them highly. Good luck!
EDIT: Also wanted to add that the classes go over 75 or more questions during the classes individually..using test taking strategies..forgot to put that in..
