I keep hearing mention of them being tailored to getting people who score pretty low into the 160's, which your story substantiates. They actually have separate classes for 'high-scorers' or something which I've heard from a Kaplan rep on this forum. So perhaps some further research on your part would have resulted in a more satisfactory prep-course experience.
Regardless of that, I really do hope you feel like you got your moneys worth by the end of the course. Maybe it will get better.
Either way, I feel like if I hadn't signed up for a course I would regret it if I hit anything below my target score. Even if some of the classes seem like a waste of time (most will probably be useful if only for the practice), the pure volume of preptests/questions by classifications/online help TM gives is worth it to me.
I dispute nothing that you said. I dont say classes are bad. All I am saying is that they can hurt. And for me personally, I believe it is. It may be great for you and the OP.
Then we are in agreement, and I sincerely hope that you do well on the exam and that by the end of the course you feel it hasn't hurt you.
To the OP...you'll be fine. The national average, to my knowledge, is a 152. So you're already ahead of the game, just keep at it.
