I am literally awestruck after seeing that not a single US med graduate has paid heed to this question.What I duly consider is that they all do not even consider it worth their time to answer queries about such a brand like Kaplan, leave alone using it for USMLE exams.Nonetheless, here I am, a US medical graduate, showing you the real facet of this much-known US brand.Bitter truth is that you’ll hardly encounter any US medical graduate using Kaplan for review purpose.Well, no one here is interested to spend thousands of dollars on their review course for USMLE exams. Of course there are other resources available around us.This can be the main reason why Kaplan is longing to operate on a global platform.Had the US students been taking its USMLE courses, it would have been working pretty much fine for Kaplan. However, such is not the scenario.Therefore, the Kaplan tended to target the global audience in the name of an international company.What’s more to find out is that the material that they have been selling for thousands of dollars doesn’t correspond with the latest medical advancements. Only reason being, they haven’t updated the material for quite a while now.To mention in figures, let’s say the course hasn’t undergone any upgrades for the last 10–15 years.So, if you are one of those who go for brand value and have got enough cash to expend, feel free to join Kaplan.For those who do not fall into this category, go find an institute in your region for USMLE test prep only as I can guarantee that you will find it much better that attending the recorded lectures of Kaplan.
