i would be leery of taking a course that ends 3 days before the test. You will be learning concepts and strategies up until the end. Make sure you have some time to take these concepts and implement them to full lenght prep test strategies. You can do it, but I would suggest taking the test later and applying next cycle.

Sometimes people need time to let things digest. If you take a course, I believe it's better to give yourself plenty of time after the course to review things more thoroughly on your own before taking the exam itself.
However, this is dependent upon the idea that you'll be motivated/have time to study more after the course ends. If you're motivated and have the time, it's very worthwhile to give yourself more time afterward, but it really depends on you/your personality/your schedule and other obligations.

I took it, and it wasn't for me. It's really scattered in my opinion, you'll be switching from advanced linear to reading comprehension in homework. I know they had an idea behind the structure of it, but I like learning one thing at a time and in order. I felt much more motivated with the books and doing my own thing. The annoying thing about the course is that if you miss something, even if you ask a question, you have to wait until the end to get the recording or go back, whereas in the book you can just glance back and spend as much time as you need. Different strokes for different folks.

IMO, having taken the Class last year, unless you are one of "those" people who have no time to study and cannot bring yourself to build a self study plan and have to have things taught to you, its a huge waste of money. The course is basically the LR LG and RC bibles, with a couple classes going over them very slowly. If you can read, much better off reading the bibles separately. its the same stuff.
