This is simply NOT true. When I first took the test, I took the TM class, sort of bulshitted through it, and ended up getting the same score the day of as I did on my first diagnostic (aka: NO improvement). I am re-taking now, and when I was studying I used the PS Bibles. The LR Bible increased my average LR score from -3/5 to -1/-2. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT.
To qualify this statement: I started out with a 168, so our situations are slightly different. Nevertheless, I don't think it's repetitive OR detrimental to invest in the bibles. The most important part of this whole thing is that YOU MUST PUT IN WORK, OP. Regardless of your diagnostic score, you will see NOTHING positive happen if you don't put in the work. My first time around, I had 0 improvement because I didn't work at all. Now, I'm putting in about 5x the work I did the first time, and my PT average has jumped significantly (I'd say 5-6 points, probably--I was averaging a little lower than my cold diagnostic my first time around).
Hmm, I've looked through the PS bibles, and I don't find them drastically different from the TM course, which is why I said that it'd be repetitive. The reason I said the Bibles would be detrimental is because OP is aiming for the June test and already has enough on his/her hands; sorting through which methods from the two companies work for him/her would be extremely taxing.
If OP is revising his/her schedule & rescheduling for October, then yeah, no harm in looking at the PS strategies as well, given that OP would have the time to do so.
