That's the only thing I've been using as the basis for my knowledge (since I can't recall shit from 1L year) and I am constantly coming across questions covering things Kaplan never discussed. For instance, in the midterm, there was a question that included the term "upset price" in the context of a foreclosure sale that was critical in understanding how to answer the question correctly. While context allowed me to guess the right answer, I had never heard the term in my life. Reviewing my outline, I don't have the term referenced anywhere. This is not a limited experience--I have noticed the same thing in a dozen or so of the midterm questions alone (and I'm only halfway through grading it!).
Am I missing some source of information from Kaplan? Or are these uncovered aspects just an unavoidable downside of trying to (re)learn an entire subject in a lecture or two?
If you happen to watch any of the video reviews, I believe Chris Fromm explains this question. I think he said something like, "You probably didn't hear this term in law school or even the lecture, but I decided to throw it in there last minute because it reminded me of a question from the last Bar Exam I took."
No fucking clue besides that...
