Black Spectacles _ SS 4.0 Exam Prep

Postby spatialpractice_36 » Sun Jul 23, 2017 2:46 pm

Hi,

I`m considering signing up for a 1-month Black Spectacles video tutorial subscription to help me study for Structures 4.0. Does anyone have experience using these tutorials to prepare for the structures exam? If so, did you find it to be beneficial and worth the money?

Also, I'm open to other tutorial suggestions that anyone recommends too.

Thanks,

Pretty much everyone loves Thaddeus.

I have a rule of not paying for any learning material.
So I've been using these Khatri videos and Ballast someone gave me.

When I was studying for SS I too considered paying for additional study materials. It was my last exam and I had used only the Kapplan books, but felt the material was not explained very well. I too found the free Khatri videos about 2 weeks before my exam. I found them to be really helpful in explaining the basic concepts. Passed on the first try for what that is worth.

I used Black Spectacles for the 1 month for SS. I knew I needed to start studying but I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to start, so I bought a month. I think the BS videos were a good introduction to a lot of the concepts in a very accessible method. That being said I don't know if it was worth it. I have heard so many people talking about how awesome Thaddaus is. I don't think the BS vids were 'amazing'. They were useful, they were helpful. But it sounds like Thaddaus, while more expensive, would be a better use of time and money.

I studied Ballast MC, Khatri videos, all videos on youtube. I failed the MC miserably. I am trying to decide if I want to do Thaddeus, Miltalski or Setareh (recommended by amber book). Any thoughts?
