Go look up Wikipedia.

It is a US based for profit company.

It is not a University except because it calls itself one. (Which is legal in USA).

There are other parts of Kaplan in the world that provide courses so students can graduate from other real universities.

Kaplan is a large private training and education centre that is profit driven, not research driven.

It is an interesting business model for investors. Less interesting for students.

How good is National University of Singapore for doing Ph.D in computer science?

PhD does not depend on the university standard.

I understand this is an overstatement, but other than the basic support from university in form of facilities, the teaching facility does not influence your PhD much.

If you think of collaboration with other departments and professors (for example, collaborating with biologists for experiments), NUS is really good for that. It is huge, diverse and attracts really good collaborators from all over the world.

That said, if you come here after carefully choosing (and talking to) the professor, it's surprisingly better than a lot of places!

Is Kaplan a good prep course for the SAT?

Is Kaplan a good prep course for the SAT?2021-08-25 22:23:24Mr_袁

In my experience, Kaplan sells primarily discipline and confidence [error corrected]; their theory is that sufficient repetition will allow the correct method to subconsciously seep into your brain.

Princeton Review has an attitude that rubs me the wrong way personally; I prefer knowledge and skill to hacks and tips.

I don't know anything about the Power Score class, but I do know that the Power Score Bibles are written with the philosophy that exhaustive knowledge will gain you sufficient accuracy that it doesn't matter if it slows you down.

Some course is teaching you to memorize 64 false argument forms, only 10 of which will ever be on the LSAT, does not help you learn the analytical skills that the test is actually testing for.

There's a new course called Blueprint. All I know about it is that they put a lot of money into advertising, and what their advertising says they do and what their web page says they do are not the same.

Are there good job prospects for chemical engineers in Singapore?

Are there good job prospects for chemical engineers in Singapore?2021-07-31 06:55:44Mr_魏

My answer to this question is limited prospects.

I graduated from NUS in Chemical Engineering. Naturally, I want to pursue a career in the related field. Chemical engineers can work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, and environmental health and safety industries, among others." Quoted from : What do Chemical Engineers Do?

It seems like there are quite a number of industries a chemical engineer can venture into. If you search for chemical engineering on career portal such as Jobs for Singapore, https://www.jobsbank.gov.sg/ and so forth, there will be at least approximately 300 job opportunities available every day. Most of the job adverts are repetitive, I believe it is the same for other sectors as well. Out of 300 opportunities, fewer than 10 are willing to hire entry level candidates and most positions require candidates to have three or more years of related field working experience. With these statistics versus the number of graduating chem eng students in SG each year, the hiring prospects for chemical engineers are bleak.

I took a year off in search of a career in chemical engineering hoping to do something related to process engineering or technical/production engineering. The search was a painful process. The main reason was my lack of related technical experience. As a matter of fact, if companies are not going to give opportunities to entry level graduates, how will they then have a chance to accumulate the so called "technical experience"? With the influx of "technically inclined" foreigners, this makes competition even tougher.

Are universities in Singapore good for me to pursue a degree?

Are universities in Singapore good for me to pursue a degree?2021-07-08 19:39:44Mr_辛

Universities in Singapore are world class. On average they’re good for anyone to pursue a degree.

But … is that good for you? Answering that requires a great deal of self introspection. Some questions to ask yourself:

  • Which degree do you want to pursue and why? What do you hope to gain from the degree (knowledge, contacts, job placement?)
  • What’s the real world alternative to it? Have you considered if it better fits your ambition instead of just a degree?
  • If it’s a degree like MBA, is it really necessary? (I did an MBA myself and more than the scant knowledge imparted in my classes, it was the contacts and job opportunities that it opened up for me which helped me more).
  • If you’re considering moving to Singapore from another country just for the degree, is it, on a whole, worth it for you and your situation?

Is Kaplan University a good school?

Is Kaplan University a good school?2021-06-20 16:21:52Mr_商

This answer is late to the game, and Kaplan University was bought out and doesn't exist anymore, but I'm going to answer your question anyway.

One reason of answering your question, is because the top rated question on here is factually incorrect and it needs to be clarified. It's ridiculous to see somebody answer this question with false information and then have it get brought to the top of the list.

The person that claimed in their answer, Kaplan University was not “regionally accredited”, and therefore not a good school, is wrong.

Kaplan university was regionally accredited.

Before being purchased by Perdue University for their online program, it was accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

This is the same accreditation as Arizona State University!

It's annoying to see somebody answer your question and take the time to write it, but they apparently didn't take the time to research the facts before answering.

If accreditation is the standard people want to go by, then state University's like ASU that are accredited regionally by the same accreditation that Kaplan university held, should suffice.

Kaplan was bought out by purdue University, and turned the online program for their school in to Purdue global. If Kaplan University was such a terrible school, Purdue University I'm sure would not have purchased it. Perdue University has a reputation of being a good school.

Kaplan graduates also are considered Purdue University alumni.

Kaplan University also had professors teaching at the school such as brigadier generals and former FBI agents, they had knowledgeable professors in their fields of study.

Anyone on here that claims Kaplan University wasn't a good school, or they didn't have a regional accreditation, is completely full of it and doesn't know what they're talking about..

It takes 5 minutes to look up what accreditation the school had, if they can't be bothered to do that and yet they want to answer a question with a bunch of false information and their answer, then it would come highly suspect anything else they claimed in their statement.

How good is the scope for career in data science in Singapore?

How good is the scope for career in data science in Singapore?2021-06-27 04:05:22Mr_柯

Data science is a growing industry worldwide. Industries in every country are slowly adopting the power and abilities of data science to cope up and compete with one another on the same level. Singapore happens to be an important hotspot as it’s growing rapidly to compete globally.

As per searches on popular job sites (as of April 19, 2020), Glassdoor claims that there are 997 available jobs, LinkedIn claims that there are 4000+ jobs available, while jobstreet.com claims about 485 jobs and lastly Indeed displays 799 job positions available.

The immense number of opportunities is definitely good news. But aspirants of data science should also be aware that the field today is competitive and you should be able to display through foundations, practical problem-solving skills, and a business understanding.

If you are looking to develop these skills via a course, I would personally recommend the Post Graduate Program in Data Science and Business Analytics (PGP-DSBA) offered by The University of Texas at Austin, and delivered in collaboration with Great Learning. It is a 7-month long program with a defined structure (not self-paced, unique mentored learning approach, hands-on training via projects, and career support services.

Hope this information helps you out. All the best!

Disclosure - I work with Great Learning, the Ed Tech platform that delivers the program.

How is the Kaplan GRE prep?

How is the Kaplan GRE prep?2021-07-25 02:27:57Mr_司空

I've used Kaplan before and here's my review:

The Good:

  • Huge online question bank (the number of questions are much more than Magoosh) and has a separate set of questions for practice sets and tests
  • Verbal is fairly similar to the real GRE
  • Test interface is almost the same as the actual GRE

The Bad:

  • The hard quant questions of Kaplan, are hard for sure, but not similar to what is considered hard by ETS.
    Kaplan's hard quant questions take time to solve and sometimes require over calculation and brute force. In the actual GRE, a hard problem almost never has a long tedious method requiring insane precision. It's generally a tricky question, once figured out, can be solved quickly.
  • The tests aren't really adaptive at least not in the way the GRE is. Magoosh and PowerPrep are the only 2 sources that emulate that well.
