DeltaCourse - do not buy- big rip-off? [#permalink] New post 21 Feb 2005, 01:54
I posted this in a differrent thread started by somebody else but I think this title will have attenion from more people.

I have purchased DeltalCourse material as I saw it was mentioned here and Ursula(760 scorer on testmagic) recommended it but I feel it is a big rip-off.

Charging $27 for just probability questions is rediculous.Their advertisement on the main page got me into it.Their ad makes you feel that you are getting quiet a few things but it is all big BS and marketing gimmic.
Things that irritated me:
    -Unncessary overblown advertisement on their homepage.

    -Their so-called "Guide to algebra" has just one question.I felt like I am stupid.They just cheated calling it guide to algebra.It is under bonus section but why false advertise?

    -They advertise ..."A formula from an 18th-century mathematician that can help you solve probability problems". This is height of hyping.They just list the Bayer's theorem in the notes.I have never seen this kind of hyping anywhere.

    -And their line is something like "If you are not preprearing with us, you are not preparing". Big BullShi........

    -Strategies from high-scorers is a big joke.Posts from old timers with not much info.Nowhere near to what we see in this forum.


Do yourself a favour and stay ayway from these guys.Buy a nice dinner for your family with the same money.

Anybody else feel the same?

Even I bought the course and its not the worth of $27. It might be better to take the help of google.com rather than shelling out for Delta course.
I found better material and concepts over the web compared to that of Delta course.

I also bought the course online. I haven't found much that is very useful. Perhaps I should have stuck to my books

Delta Course totally not worth it [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2005, 11:37
It gives decent probability and perm/comb overviews but offers little in the away of more advanced problems and certainly isn't worth $30. Maybe $5.

Do you have any suggestion on websites that can help in preparing for probability-type question? Thanks

The DeltaCourse is good for one thing... the daily email they have to test your math skills... its a free email.

I agree with all the posters. The course has not been updated since 2003 and pretty much only has 5 types of questions. Sign up for a free daily e-mail and review C(n,k) and P(n,k) questions.

On the real test (2/10/07) I only had one question covered by Delta Course related to C(n,k)
