garfield306 Posted January 13, 2012 Share Posted January 13, 2012 Just found out I passed the PANCE with a healthy margin. I was looking feverishly the last couple of weeks for others' experience with Kaplan qbank but could not find much. So, FWIW, here's my take: I used the AAPA review book some but also completed 1200 of the questions on Kaplan online. I set the questions to include all categories and took 30-40 questions in test mode at a time, but increased some tests to 50 questions to simulate the real length. I spent just over 2 weeks between graduation and test day doing questions every day except Sundays. I found the Kaplan questions to be difficult and consistently scored between 60-70% on the exams with the highest score 80 and the lowest 27. They had a very broad range of questions and even with doing 1200 of them there were only a few that were repeating the same thing. I learned how to read questions, how to eliminate wrong answers, how to spot cues in the questions. Even so, some questions had red herrings so you still need to keep an open mind and think critically. Taking the PANCE was like a breath of fresh air after slaving through so many complicated and difficult questions on Kaplan. I am curious as to others' experience with Kaplan and if you thought it was worthwhile. As we learned in Biostatistics, you can prove anything with an N=1, so take this with a grain of salt.
