Anybody else take the KAPLAN 3-Day and feel like you've just been intellectually violated and taken advantage of?

Cuz I sure do.

Is KAPLAN supposed to be more difficult than the actual exam?

From what peopl;e who took our exam told me, the PMBR questions in thebooks/online were harder than the real MBE questions (same for barbri too). I have been taking PMBR questions, Barbri questions and the Adpapitbar questions. Adaptibar says they use only real, realsed MBE questions, I find thier easier than PMBR/Barbri.
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

Yes.

That 3 Day test was just murder

However the lecture was informative.

I have to review EVERY SINGLE question, so I can get some points on the day of the test!

Let's get these cards!
But when you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out, in!

Yeah I hear both Barbri and Kaplan's questions are harder than the MBE questions.

The essay questions, at least on Barbri, are murder. hahah 5 days.

I am SO BAD at these! I take some comfort in the fact that I do a little better on the released questions.  Still, WTF with testing crimes like passing bad checks and the special status of cashiers' checks and stuff?
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Bad checks? That sounds painfully familiar.  NY Summer '07 Bar perhaps?

I think so!  It doesn't have a released date on it, but a friend who took the bar the same summer said he thought so too.
