Kaplan Question about Order of Study

  1. I just started Kaplan yesterday. Had planned to go through the entire online book & program step at a time ..... but Lord ! it took such a long time to just get through the first book-online lecture-review questions Unit of Chapter 1.

    Is advisable to do the Kaplan program in the order they list it ?
    Is there anything wrong -- will I miss anything important -- if I do sections NOT is the order presented. For ex. I'm thinking about jumping right into the Pharm Unit next since that's where I feel a little weak.

    Thanks

    I just took the boards today - It shut off at 75 and I feel pretty good about it. I just finished Kaplan about 2 weeks ago. I purchased the Kaplan complete. I did watch every minute of those online content videos, and to tell you what - I wouldn't bother. I say this because, I chose to watch those videos in lieu of reading that huge Kaplan review book - well if there was info I couldn't remember or that was brought up a lot in questions, I would have to turn to that book. So, here is what I found totally do-able and helpful - during the review class, pay attention in class and when you are about half way through start on the Q Trainer. Don't worry about your % grades. The day after it stops, start going to Borders or someplace similar ALL day long. Spend time on QBank + QTrainer and alternate the time answering questions with time spent on a chapter in the book. This only works if you are like me and study for 6 - 8 hours at a time, but I found this to be the most helpful and I ended up actually reading that whole Kaplan book just in sections and in different order, so I didn't even realize it. Hope this helps.
