Feedback on in-class/one-on-one courses?

<p>As an incoming freshman, I'm looking for any reviews of non-self-study courses offered by Kaplan, PR, etc</p>

<p>Are they worth the cost?
Did you feel like you could have been more effective self-studying (I know it's a subjective matter, but...)?</p>

<p>When studying for the SAT, I developed a much greater feel for the test layout and material through self-study, but found my high school's prep course a bit amateurish and irrelevant. I assume, however, these test prep agencies are really on top of it?</p>

<p>Thanks for your thoughts.</p>
