Online or Classroom Course
That is the Question !!!!

Well, "Horses for Courses" as the saying goes

We are all different and the way we learn best is also different

Some people want the human contact with immediate feedback
Others find it distracting or intimidating

Some like a shorter concentrated study period
Others need the flexibility to study when and where they wish over a longer time period due to work or home commitments

Some want to sit the exam straight after the course
Others want time to revise on their own in private

Having participated in taught courses, distance learning courses and online courses, I personally learn best with online courses which gives  the convenience, flexibility and repeatability of learning, as well as the option for a Remote Invigilator Exams

(see "Why Online" below for other fun reasons)
