I work full time and have family members that need medical care. My study plan is 1-1.5 hour per weeknight with Friday off. Saturday 6 hours, and Sunday 4 hours. I will adjust accordingly.
I like a review course that explains the topic well, MCQs and SIMs that prepare me for the actual exam experience. I'm scared of SIMS for some reason. I know I will have to do a lot of practice for MCQ and SIMS. I know it's an ordeal but I truly want the exam out of the way.
I'm leaning toward Gleim because I'm on a budget and heard that the textbook explains the topics well. Roger's lecture is engaging. Wiley and Becker not so good with their lectures and textbooks? Which one helps you understand why you got the answer wrong instead of just memorizing the answer since you've seen it so many times?
I thought about combining Gleim textbooks/lectures with NINJA. I'm going to sign up for the Gleim free trial but I think a 2 week trial doesn't cover the experience of someone who has gone through a review course and exam.
Please share and advise. I appreciate it.March 13, 2019 at 10:41 pm #2264310
I’m using Roger now. But roger doesn’t have authoritative literature built in like Becker and the others. Lectures are great thoughMarch 14, 2019 at 3:37 am #2264379
I use Roger mostly and supplement with NINJA for the notes because I personally don't take notes. I love Rogers lectures compared to other courses I did trials for. Becker was absolute crap lecture wise in my opinion and being that I am an auditory learner it instantly made that one a no go for me. I didn't care for Gleim or Wily. Surgent would have been my second choice for the main program if I hadn't chosen Roger.March 14, 2019 at 6:30 am #2264427
I use Wiley and supplement it with Ninja. I like Wiley because of their bite sized lessons. Their FAR lectures I thought were good, but I found it better for me to read their text book instead. I feel their text books do a good job in going into detail. I have also found that for the majority of the MCQs for Wiley, they do provide why a particular answer is wrong, and why this answer is right, which I like. Try them all out and see which one best fits your studying needs. Which ever one you choose, I would definitely suggest using Ninja along with it.March 14, 2019 at 6:39 am #2264433
For every person here that loves Becker, there is another that hates Becker and loves Roger, Gleim, or [insert course name here]. They all have their advantages and disadvantages.
Get the free trials and try them out. Pick the one you like the most.March 14, 2019 at 9:36 am #2264637
Highly recommend using all the free trials before putting down the cash.
I went with Roger basic course, and Gleim physical textbooks and test bank.
Figure out your learning style first, then see which course best fits the learning style.
After you do the free trials you will get coupon codes, and you can always call and ask for a discount.
If you go with Gleim be sure to ask for Debbie.March 14, 2019 at 11:24 am #2264820
