Consider it the best $800 you ever spent compared to going it alone. The classes go over what you will need to pass the tests (since they know what is going to be on the test). You have to study everything on your own because you have no idea what might be asked. It took me three months of studying, a lot, but I passed first time. It's amazing how much I've blanked out already though
