I am thinking about getting MIKE HOLT full education package that is about $1700.00

Do any of you guys have the package and if yes is a good investment?

And if nobody has one what is your opinion?

Thank You

I got a 'sample' book from Mike to consider using in the class I teach (PT). I submitted info to the school office to consider the book, and have not received a answer as of yet.

Considering that '05 is almost upon us, is there any update in the package??

The info that I have seen & received looks very thoruogh and up to date, and depending on the school's answer I may go that route.

Anyone else have any comments???

My correspondence school ( used the Mike Holt book on estimation.

It seemed complete (as complete as any book on estimating can be! ) and his site seems pretty thorough.

My only concern would be accreditation - some AHJ's only accept accredited schhols for distance learning - and I'm not sure if his stuff is. Look for the approval of the US armed forces - it's usually a good "no BS" indicator.
