Content good and useful - Editing could use some work
from Santa Cruz CA USA
on Friday, May 28, 2010
Pros: Good information - great video quality - energetic instructors and commentators - what you *should* know information - Test prep software included was very nice - None of the cons are reasons not to get it
Cons: Little light on details sometimes, like difference between LDA, SDA, IOC - Navigation menu artifact on the Blu-Ray using PS3 which took user action to get rid of, however that was not on the DVD - Editing was not as good, in fact downright strange, scenes switched very oddly sometimes.
The series has got a lot of what you *should* know included. The content included enough to get the test taken care of (I got a 93%) and the Test Prep software was pretty solid. It allowed you to get explanations and lessons during the *study* simulated tests, and the *real* simulated tests allowed you to review questions afterwards. The editing of the actual video was pretty weird. Scene cuts seem to be at the wrong place sometimes, but that was more entertaining than really distracting. At one place the narrator got cut off mid sentence went to another scene talking about real world applications, then went back for the guy to finish his sentence. Again though nothing wrong with the content. The fact it included Blu-Ray was nice if you have that kind of player. I did notice that there were some menu artifacts where I had to re-display the menu then remove it again for it to go away for good. It showed up any time I started the video the first time or navigated to a new lesson. Probably more of a technical issue and I was using a Playstation 3 which may be somewhat non standard anyway.
