Maybe someones suggested this already but I'd tell the tutor that I will open an escrow account via a lawyer... or it's equivilant, and when he satisfies his obligations, the 180 all the money will be transfered to him.  Until then he can have 30$ an hour for his time.

If he's so sure of himself he wont have a problem with that.  Maybe even come up with a contract that gives him a percentage of the total based on your score...

I would strongly advise you against taking a class.  A tutor will focus on your weaknesses and your money will be more effectively spent. 

Get the LG bible and study it religously.  Then get a tutor if you feel like you still need one.

The first line of this guys advice makes me suggest disregard every word.

Care to elaborate on that?

Sorry to post a detour here but it is a related question...

If I get in to the part time program at a school is it possible to switch to full time later or does the curriculum not line up properly?

If you haven't taken a prep course yet and you can afford it, I would highly suggest doing so. They will teach you tricks and explain sections to you until you are all exhausted. The instructor will be available to you via phone and email and will work really hard to help you increase your score.

I would give you the opposite advice.  Especially if youve been studying on your own for a while.  If you feel the need to get human help get a tutor.  The money will be much better spent than it will be on a course.  See some of my other posts if you want to know why.

But on the other hand, low scoring or underachieving members are less likely to post their scores because of shame, or wanting to avoid the criticism.

Definitly true.  No one's pointing out their score regularly in posts or putting it in their sig if it is below 160.

It depends on your first diagnostic.  If your below 145 on your first it might help you.  No matter what your score I would steer you away from a course and tell you to get the books that are recommended here and if that doesnt get your score where you want it.   Then hire a tutor and focus on your weaknesses.  Most of my other posts explain why not to take a course if your curious.

Read my other posts if you want more reasons why but dont waste your, or your parents, money on a course.  If you determine after some practice that you need some help then get a tutor.  The money will be spent much more effeciently if you get a good tutor.

Start with the bibles and the other books recomended here and then if your still not happy with your score then find the best tutor you can get to focus on your weaknesses.
