Well I haven't enrolled with him, but from the look into his website, it looks primitive with stuff like "I can help" and "you can do it" .. bla bla bla

My advice is to go for the courses that have been experimented by thousands of students.

Askdoc is not even listed here

The askdoc guy started as a blog and then when he found that people like his recommendations he thought OK let me give some courses.

The guy does not come anywhere near the other major online courses such as DIT and Kaplan.

It's probably a waste of money if you sign up with him.

Default about DIT

so DIT! what you have heard from it??? I've been checking their website and they give online courses, do you know something about that? cause, obviously i can't go to the Kaplan live prep, cause i'm in Peru and I'm working, so I need an online course, because studying alone without a method is pretty hard! any feedback about that! and thanks again!!!
