I've had an unbeatable experience with Kaplan Medical at Newark-including the excellent classroom environment, comprehensive teaching methods, and comprehensive course structure. The faculty and other students were always very friendly and helpful. I especially enjoyed the fresh coffee available at all times during operation hours. I would definitely recommend this course to prospective students-no doubt about it!
