i found the prof dave book to be really great. superior to nova on lr's and rc. in nova, kolby goes on at length about different "classifications" of question types...fallacies, equivocation, circular, contradiction...all good stuff, but not specific strategy focused. prof dave does 4 major "categories" of types if you can appreciate the distinction. and, this is the strategy for this type and do this for the other type, etc. it threw a switch in my head. up 7 points immediately, 10 overall. as for stadiumpal...remember one thing jewlo said:
"Warning-I've said this before and i'll say it again: You WILL have to drop a serious deuce of mass proportions. However, i can assure you that it'll be worth it."
so..if that happens, you wil indeed get to be pals with whatever intimate product you have brought aboard. good luck.
