  • KAPLAN: How This Slacker Became a Med Student

    May 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Enthusiastic staff, helpful materials, great test center, well-organized schedule.
    Cons: You have to study your you-know-what off in order to get the results you want... but this applies to every prep course!

    Summary: There is probably nothing more hideous than the letters M,C,A, and T when they combine to spell "MCAT". Indeed, the Medical College Admissions Test makes even the most seasoned pre-medical students wring their hands in desperation, rub their ... read more

  • Terrible Decision

    Jul 7, 2011 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Some actual content review
    Cons: Awful teacher, too expensive

    Summary: This course is one of the things that made me decide not to become a doctor. After my parents had paid the ridiculous sum of money required to enroll in Kaplan's MCAT prep course and I had purchased all the necessary supplements, I began to study with ... read more

  • Kaplan private tutoring vs MCATdigger

    Apr 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great tutors, personal attention, value for a buck
    Cons: Only in NY

    Summary: About 4 months ago when I was searching for some good preparation material for the MCAT and researching different preparatory courses, I stumbled upon the mcatdigger.com These guys offer a great value for a buck. I mean looking at Kaplan and PR nothing ... read more

  • Kaplan VS. Princeton Review

    Jun 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Classes are on video, Keeps you on a schedule
    Cons: Bad teaching, Must go to Kaplan library for additional material, Not much practice materials

    Summary: Take it from someone who has gotten into medical school and took the Kaplan MCAT Class... DON'T WASTE $1200 bucks on the course. In the Kaplan MCAT classes, all they do is pretty much read out of the Lesson Book. You don't ever need to technically go ... read more

  • Good results, but overpriced

    Mar 23, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Testing resources, Books, Financial motivation to do well
    Cons: Outrageous price, teachers

    Summary: Enrollment for coaching courses for standardized tests have reached an all time high. They range from the entry level SAT to any post-graduate test you can think of. While I didn't use a course for the SAT, I fell into the trap where I thought since ... read more

  • Great resources, too expensive

    Jan 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great texts and practice tests
    Cons: Could do the same without paying $1000

    Summary: Let me preface this by saying that Kaplan worked for me. I earned a very high MCAT score with the aid of Kaplan materials, but in retrospect I could have done the same thing and been $1000 richer. The texts you receive cover each section of the ... read more

  • Worth the money? Not really...

    Dec 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great textbook, practice materials, practice tests
    Cons: Classroom teaching is poor

    Summary: Let me first introduce myself. I'm an undergraduate senior at Tufts University in Boston. I am a biology major and I did all the pre-med requirements that you are all probably in the middle of right now. (good luck!) I took the Kaplan MCAT prep course ... read more

  • It's not fun -- but it's worth it.

    Oct 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: the practice materials
    Cons: the cost

    Summary: No-one will tell you it's a pleasure to part with $1100. Or to go to class on Saturday mornings (There are lots of different schedules to choose from). Or even to spend time with 15 other stressed-out premedical students. When it comes ... read more

  • Kaplan MCAT course vs. Princeton Review MCAT course

    Aug 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clear/Concise Study Materials
    Cons: Cost

    Summary: Having taken the MCAT (with Kaplan) two years ago and taught the MCAT for the Princeton Review for the past year I have had adequate experience with the two largest MCAT teaching companies and I can say unequivocally that Kaplan has a MUCH better ... read more

  • A Leg Up with Kaplan

    Aug 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It helps you get the score you need to be competitive and get accepted.
    Cons: The price is a bit exorbitant.

    Summary: Preparing for medical school is a stressful and highly competitive experience. With so many commercial preparatory courses available, more and more students have the opportunity to get a sort of leg up on other students. Having just completed one of ... read more

  • MCAT a la Kaplan

    Jun 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Structure and guidance
    Cons: Cost

    Summary: It was my junior year in college and I knew I wanted to go to medical school. I knew I'd have to take the Medical College Assessment Test (MCAT). The test covers the following topics: 1. Human biology 2. ... read more

  • Save your money, skip Kaplan

    Jun 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: motivation
    Cons: Poor program with poor instructors

    Summary: This class was virtually useless! Why do I say that? The quality of instruction is low, the review material is lack luster and Kaplan does not teach test taking strategy. The instructors' only qualification is that they did well on the MCAT. ... read more

  • Depending On What You Know, This Might Not Be For You

    Jun 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: fairly comprehensive
    Cons: somewhat expensive

    Summary: Kaplan.. ahh yes.. a company that has existed for many years which improves your scores on various tests, asking for money in return. The course is very comprehensive but it really depends on what you come into the class with. You might not want to spend ... read more

  • ... Incredible MCAT Preparation...

    May 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Test Center, Incredible resources
    Cons: Overcrowding at test center, Slow classes, Tests were somewhat different than MCATs

    Summary: ... Well, like most of you out there, I was stuck trying to decide whether to take Kaplan, Princeton Review (PR), or just buy a Barron's study text. I chose Kaplan, and can say that without this course, I would not have gotten into Medical School. ... read more

  • Former Kaplan MCAT Instructor Gives it the thumbs up

    May 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Focused review, good practice resources, good track record
    Cons: Expensive, occasionally variable teaching quality (can work both ways, though)

    Summary: I'm currently a medical student, and I taught two Kaplan MCAT courses about two years ago. That may or may not compel you to listen to what else I have to say, given that I was never actually a *student* in one of the MCAT courses themselves, or any ... read more

  • Worth it in the long run

    May 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gives you the nessesary information
    Cons: kind of expensive

    Summary: Everyone who has the opportunity to go to med school should look into taking this course. I personally did not take this course, maybe its because I was a Finance major, but my girlfriend took the course. I didn't think that she needed to spend this ... read more

  • A great way to prepare

    May 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great prep and piece of mind
    Cons: Price

    Summary: I must say that I am a bit dazed by the whole MCAT stuff by this point. I have been through it all, 4 to 5 years ago as I am know 1 month away from being a 4th year in medical school. The MCAT tests material that you already know but may have ... read more

  • So you want to be a doctor?

    Summary: What you're up against For those of you considering a career in medicine, the MCAT is one of the most important tests you'll ever take. It's crucial to have a good MCAT score if you want to be a good candidate for medical school. Admissions ... read more

  • Don't Waste Your Time/Money

    Apr 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nurturing Environment
    Cons: Big waste of time and money

    Summary: Kaplan testing services have certain benefits that make them a worthy consideration for test prep. In the end, they fall way short of the 1000+ asking price. This is an exorbitant sum to pay for materials that can be had for a fraction of the price. I ... read more

  • What You Need - nothing more, nothing less

    Apr 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Materials and Content Presentation.
    Cons: EXPENSIVE!

    Summary: I would definitely recommend taking a review course, but with which company is a personal decision. I hope this review will help you choose. I took the Kaplan MCAT course last year because there is a lot of material on the MCAT that students ... read more
