To take or not to take a Testmasters course?
« on: May 23, 2008, 03:08:19 PM »
For those of you who did not take a class, how many months before the exam did you begin your study regimen?
Any tips on how to keep diligently focused?



For those of you that did take the class...how effective do you think it was for you? Some things you got out of the class you wouldn't have otherwise? Would you skip out on it and save some money if you could do it again? 


Thanks!

I am in the final weeks of a TestMasters class right now, and I definitely do not regret my decision to take the class.  My teacher is great and the homework books are extremely helpful -- it is very easy to pinpoint you weaknesses, as the homework questions are broken down by question type.  So far, I have gone from a 160 on diagnostic 1, a 166 on diagnostic 2, and a 167 on diagnostic 3 (one week later), and feel that I still have a great amount of room for improvement.  I am not taking the exam until October and I will review the questions that I got wrong in the TM homework for the rest of the summer and take self-administered diagnostics.  In any case, I feel I am far more prepared to self-study for this exam now that I am scoring where I am . . . I know my weak spots, and I know to improve them, thanks to TestMasters.  I just need to practice.

testmasters is def better than kaplan.  kaplan is scripted and horrible.  i think private tutoring is best if you can get it but it can be more expensive.
