Hello there,

     I am not at all interested in another analysis of how tricky the test questions are...I have heard it ad naseum. I know the test is a b$tch. I know that most agree that all of the different study materials don't do the greatest job with the 66. So, if you are tempted to leave a long dissertation of how it used to be a 70 to pass and it's not fair, or how the exam is written by lawyers, or how you failed the first time because you had diarrhea the morning of, please do not respond to this. I'd rather have noone respond. The test is the test. It is what it is. (Christ, I hate that saying..so for that , I'm sorry). I'm just interested in choosing the better poison with regard to study materials in order to be as prepared as I can be. No BS or fluff. I just want the best chance of doing this correctly the first time. I really appreciate it.

Sincerely,

Thanks for laying out how we are all supposed to respond. Here's a clue to getting people - you do not know and with which you have no relational equity and over which you have no supervisory authority -  to do you a favor and offer you information and opinion of their own personal free will: Don't start out by handing out commands about how you are to be spoken to and the exact parameters within which said people may or may not respond.

Having searched past forum posts on the 66 with your rapier intelligence you also should have noticed that there is anything but unanimity of opinion on which study program is the best. And, when you think about it a person can only give an informed opinion on a program they personally used.

I had access to both FIRE and Kaplan. FIRE's 66 is awful. It is dreadful. Kaplan, by comparison was well presented but the biggest difference by far was their testing system which they call something like QProBank. You can buy their Q...whatever as a stand-alone product and I highly recommend it.
