I took a PS course and it was a waste of time and money.  I should of just bought the books.  My major problem with courses is the hours you waste listening to the instructor explain things for other peoples weaknesses.  To all future people reading this wondering if a course is for you... get the books and get a good tutor and focus on YOUR weaknesses.

Ok, well, where can I find a good tutor? I really hope Craigslist is not my only option.

Well if youre comfortable, I would put up a post requesting tutor referrals with your location in the subject heading.  If youre not comfortable with that suggestion then search online or go to a local law school/ university and read the bulletin boards, ask around. Another option would be try to find out where a TM or PS class is and ask the instructor for private tutoring w/o the company as a middleman.

A last resort would be to hire a tutor through TM or PS.

If you happen to be in or near a major city craigs list might work for you.

How come I don't hear anyone else saying the classes are a waste of time? How do I know a tutor will be so great? Maybe a class is a waste of time to you, but to others, it might not be.

You were saying???

Anyway theres some people agreeing with me.  If you want to waste your money I dont have a problem with it. 


The major reasons why classes are a waste of money...

1.  Classes have to focus on everyones weaknesses whether they are your weaknesses or not.  By the time the class is over youve wasted hours on stuff you understand.  A tutor will focus on YOUR weaknesses the entire time youre with them. 

2.  The materials that classes provide are available for a fraction of the price in books and online.

I think a list like this could get a big sticky with a bunch of contributions.  Too bad the site would probably have a few issues with the sponsors if it did.

I might of told you this already but I dont mind repeating myself...  the classes are a major waste of time.  Find a good tutor in your area.  Maybe ask around here for referrals.  Seriously you will get more for your money with a tutor.

I've seen private tutors from 30$ to 60$ and if they work for PS, TM, or kaplan they are usually over 100$.

The one I use charges me 50$/hr

Thats sound advice.  I took a class and wanted to shoot myself when the instructor had to slow down for people who couldn't get questions that I thought were easy, as I'm sure there were people who wanted to slap me when I stopped the class to ask a question that everyone else thought was easy.

Exactly my point.  I've slowed the class down too but after taking the full length course I realized that I must of wasted double digit hours listening to explanations I didnt need to hear.

All the courses are a waste of time.  You already took a course and you know what your weaknesses are.  Find a tutor that will focus on your weaknesses.  You already know that a class focuses on everyones weaknesses and when it is over youve wasted hours.

Skip the course.  If your motivated enough to study on your own they are a waste of money.  Get a great tutor and spend your money wisely.  A tutor will focus on your weaknesses.  A class focuses on everyones weaknesses whether they are yours are not and in the end you will waste hours of time and alot of money.

Read my other posts I've elaborated on this in the past.
