MCAT prep course. Whom should I chose? Are they all the same?

Hey guys! I am new to the forum, but I heard about it from MedSchoolHQ. I am an RN prepping for the MCAT. What is the difference between all these prep courses? I took Kaplan Self-paced for my NCLEX and crushed it, so I would like to go that route. NextStep is much cheaper and seems to offer the same resources without all the branding.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. I want to purchase a course by the end of next week.

I used Kaplan’s On-Demand course (recorded videos of classroom instruction basically) for the “old” MCAT and I thought it was awesome. Some of my classmates that did self-study using the Kaplan books (not the ones associated with the kaplan course) thought it was terrible. I tried using them initially but quit because I didn’t have the motivation to do it on my own, so I can’t comment on them from personal experience.
