I think you're having bar prep anxiety. That is natural. Stop, go for a walk, have a drink, go out now and then, see your friends, a movie, play video games, get a routine that takes your mind off it. Have a schedule and stick to it. Actually stop at the end of the day even if you haven't covered everything yet (until two weeks or so prior to go time, then, well, it's go time). You will be amazed at what you'll retain by just going through the established paces. I studied from noon until midnight (with all normal breaks for lunch, dinner, mental breaks when I needed), then video games until 4am - rinse and repeat, do what works for you.
Do you write slowly? I suspect you are focusing on too much trees, not enough forest. Those lectures and whatnot are designed to give you all you need to know. Does Kaplan really say to make your own outline? Or are you adding that? (I really don't know, just asking). If they expect you to make your own outline, well, that is different than barbri for sure.
But think big picture, not small details. Simplify. You don't need to know everything (and you won't, it is impossible so accept it), just enough to pass. I'm a firm believer in working the program, especially one as established as Kaplan.
But, all that said, I totally skipped things I thought were bullshit. I didn't do jack shit for essays, for example (how can you practice an essay without a professor to grade it who isn't you?). I didn't take barbri's "MBE Preview" - the first MBE they give before you dive into actual classes. Screw that, said I, why the fuck are you giving me a preview? Why not just call it "class" and include it? Then I would have done it. That's not rational, but whatever. I'll watch some lectures now, thank you. Trust your instincts - they got you this far.
