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
Edward

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???

John

My correspondence school (educationdirect.com) 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.
