View Full Version : Questions about Valley Review
06-26-2009, 04:38 PM
So I got the flyer for Valley's 2010 classes today. At the end of the registration form there is a copious amount of fine print. I am especially concerned about the 'failure to perform' clause. It makes it sound like if the class is cancelled for any reason you are just SOL and no options for refund or attend another class. A little concerning piece of info when I am about the plop down a grand plus travel expenses. Has anyone seen a class cancelled/not completed? Do they seem like a professional group (i.e. not hauling posterboards out of a pinto)? Just don't want to be left standing with empty hands. Thoughts from previous attendees?

Here are my thoughts on valley.
No worries. Go.

I went to the one in Texas a couple of months ago, the guys that own/run it are VERY professional, and the course is awesome! When I went is when there was that big deal about the swine flu in Texas and they did not cancel that class. They even tell you to call them directly if by some chance you don't pass the boards, they are really great guys with a true "concern" for their students!

They won't stiff you....they make millions doing this.

Anyone heard of this company or tried these flash cards?

Valley is awesome - worth every penny. Go - you won't regret it.

The three sample cards look a little simple. I'd be interested to hear from someone who had the set - if that's as in-depth as they go, it kind of looks like a waste of money.

is it worth it? eh, looking back, i probably coulda got away with just buying the text materials they offered. hell, i missed half of valley anyway (too many beers, not enough sleep).
that being said, it's still a fun event, and you won't really be disappointed.
in all, you can get away without going. but.. their material makes studying rather easy.

Well, as with anything, you get out of it what you put into it. If you're going to use the weekend as a drinking weekend, you might as well just buy the Valley material and spend the money you save on beer closer to home.

When i went to the class i wrote down ALOT in the sweat book that clarifies things. They actually tell you to write some things down as they are going. I found it helpful.

Thanks for the input guys. Just wanted to make sure they weren't looking for a reason to hose some people.

Okay, this sounds like a winner, so my question is when is the best time to go. I hear they have study plans for different lengths of time depending on your individual needs. Did you all go before you graduated?, last semester?, 2nd to last...? I'm in the middle of 3rd semester out of 7, ie;graduate Dec.2010. Should I plan on next summer, next fall for valley....after graduation...? what is the norm.

I went a year before graduation.
That gave me the books as well as the notes in them from the class to study...
If you can motivate yourself, you could slowly do valley over a year then hammer it at the end.
Sooner is better. Their fastest plan is 6 weeks of full time valley study (4 modules a week)

Go, pay attention during the lectures, study, pass.
The material is EXTREMELY relevant, as in some of the questions are right off the valley bullet points.
