That's a chick. But yeah she's horrible.

I used to be a Kaplan rep and submitted a huge list of improvement points to my RD after I took the full course. They actually implemented at least one thing without any compensation to me (though I asked because it's worth a try, it was ignored). But lecturer quality hasn't changed, I see.
I'm curious: Do you guys actually find value in lectures? If so, what do you get out of it that you can't get elsewhere during the 3-4 agonizing hours? Do some of you learn the best by listening (and do you leave the written outlines alone)? And others, do you do it just because it's the default way to go? No sarcasm, just curiosity for my own research.
I listen at 1.5 speed, and although I have to pause and rewind some, mentally it helps me because I see the lesser amount of time. I use the lectures for a general overview while filling in the provided outlines. I find that hearing the info, then typing it out helps me retain it easier. I also like how they tell you the heavier tested areas, because those are obviously the areas that I hone in on and include in the one-sheeters (I haven't made any yet, but will be making one for each subject this week).
Some lecturers are better than others, the Wills/Trusts, Civ Pro, and Agency lectures were the worst. I have started going back to my old class outlines and studying those instead, and it seems to be working so far.
