I noticed that they use the same stimulus in different concept sections with different prompts/answer choices, and I wouldn't normally have an issue but this one question I was still confused as to why it was wrong, and that's when it hit me that this was probably a Blueprint devised prompt/answer choice question. I mean, I listened to the explanations in the resources and I have no doubt that they know what they're doing, but I just thought that was a little iffy in that regard, esp considering that I had only their explanations to rely on when I wanted to view explanations from Kaplan/PR answer explanations to better understand perhaps why I got certain problems wrong.
We actually didn't write those ones. What happened is that when it showed up on the test, it was one stimulus with two prompts (this happens fairly regularly). But the prompts are two different question types, so we sometimes split them into their respective categories for when you're drilling them. You can look in the answer key, and it'll show what test the came from. For example, in lesson 5, the chocolate causing acne problem was done twice, with different prompts. If you look in the answer key, you'll see that they were consecutive problems from the same section on the same test. So no, not Blueprint devised, but Blueprint divided.
And if you ever have questions about a problem that go deeper than an explanation video, or if you just want clarification on something, don't forget about the email helpline.
